Bottle. The pour was a deep dark pitch black with a huge (3-4 finger) medium tan frothy head that was fully lasting and possessed excellent streaky lacing. The aroma was of roasted chocolate malt and leathery yeast with notes of dark chocolate, roasted coffee, molasses and a touch of smoke. The taste was very malty with a mild sweet chocolate note at first, but then the taste shifted slightly to a mild bitterness with a good strong coffee presence and a light sweet molasses ending. The flavor hung on for a very long time proceeding the swallow with a nice bitter coffee taste left to linger on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was almost full in body with a dry oily texture and a medium carbonation. Overall this is a great tasting Porter that was quite easy going down and had an exceptional bold robust flavor, making this one hek of an enjoyable drinking experience…

Best Porter I’ve ever had in a bottle. Nice black as night pour with a generous beige head. Good carbonation touches of chocolate and coffee on the initial palette. Excellent aftertaste. Not too bitter. Outstanding Porter.

Pours a dark black with tan head. A strong cocoa and light coffee aroma. A nice mix of chocolate, coffee, and caramel. A good mix of sweet and dry, but not as creamy as I expected. Still, very delicious!

Pours a dark rdish brown with a medium tan head. Aroma is cocoa powder and very light roast. Flavor is robust for a porter, with some cocoa powder and roasted malt. A well done porter. Very balanced and smooth, highly recommended.

Heavily roasted coffee, dark chocolate, toasted malts and milk. Great body and a creamy feel without being too heavy.

Very good porter, very traditional in color, aroma and color. Hints of chocolate, vanilla and roasted malts. Finished with a nice smokiness, with hints of chocolate. One of the best porters I have had.

MrMeadMan (10) - Amesbury, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 4, 2015
A really good porter, nice dark color though not totally opaque. Roasty malty flavor with nice smoothness. I could stand a little more sweetness to round it out.

This was really nice. Great chocolate and coffee flavors while also being a bit hoppy.
