PisskyNight (13) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2004
Appearance: the closest to black from a brown color you can get with a 1/4 inch baige head that holds a fair covering layer throughout consumption Smell: oh yea....Dark roasted chocolate covered peanuts....burnt caramel...soothing creme brulee...toffee notes are quite apparent....various diacetyl flavors seep in and out of notation... Taste: oh boy...this is grand....top notch coffee grounds....majestic chocolate puree...milk from the finest cow...hehe....so smooth and well balanced....rich and robust to say the least....I really like the fact that is not overly bitter and far from cloyingly sweet... Notes: Such a fine offering and great job to the brewers at GLBC ....get some if you can folks!

BillKismet (3605) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 16, 2015
The body is shades of sasparilla with a nice tan-browned head. The nose is moderately roasty with nuances of chocolate and coffee. Similarly, the body has a good balance to it and an easygoing roastiness made up of equal parts coffee and chocolate character. A solid porter.

hayduke (4123) - Eureka, California, USA - NOV 8, 2015
Sampled at GABF 2015. In the tasting glass brown with a tan head. Nose of roasted malts, chocolate and dark ripe fruit. Some citrus as well. Medium plus body. Flavor is dominate by chocolate and coffee, but the fruit and hops plus the bitter finish make for a solid and really great tasting porter. I liked this one a lot.

jc1762 (384) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 8, 2015
A tulip glass showing half a finger of latte colored foam and coffee brown center. The nose shows lightly roasted malts with a light vanilla in the background coming together to show an adzuki-like sweetness. The palate is light bodied and moderately carbonated but very foamy. Light flavors of roasted yet sweet adzuiki light malts. Light coffee on the finish and a good coffee flavor on the linger. Overall, simple yet tasty.

Low head. Faint coffee taste with very crisp finish. Light taste and easy to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
