Coffee and chocolate on the nose and in the mouth. A good porter.... lacked a little depth for my liking.

Pours dark brown with an amber tint and a tan head. Roasted malt aroma with tobacco, molasses and chocolate. Flavor starts with a sweet caramel malt, followed with roasted malt and chocolate finishing with coffee and smokiness. Really nice beer. Thanks Maxbier for this one!

Great porter, nothing experimental about it, just the right amounts of coffee/chocolate/toast taste. Probably the only good thing about Cleveland.

Bitter at the start. Drank from a bottle. Perfect notes of chocolate and coffee with a bit of sweet in the end.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep cola appearance with a thin tan head. Roasted yet sweet aromas are softer and more appealing than a stout. Some hops begin to come out in the flavor and provide a contrasting bitter undertone. Thick and soupy mouthfeel is delicious in a darker beer. Great stuff!

I’ve recently heard about this beer in the local paper so while visiting the Blue Dog I picked one up.
Well, this beer pours with a great tan head, dark brown in color. When held up to a light I can barely see through it.
Good head rentention, very good actually and excellent lacing.
Rich malts provide a complex aroma. I can pick out cofee and espresso and chocolate from the roasted malts.
This porter is smooth and rich in flavor, what you smell is what you get baby.
Coffee and espresso up front with a nice chocolate finish.
A good cooking beer for stews and chili.
Drink well my friends

Bottle. Taste- robust is a good word for this. Chocolatey, coffee and hard water. Prominently hopped. Great porter.

First time drinking and it lives up to the hype. Hints of cocoa and chocolate. Very easy drinking...makes me wish I had bought a 6pk instead of a single bottle!
