ben4321 (3559) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 8, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2012
Location: Draft at the Pacific Standard, 9/8/12

Aroma: The nose is roasted malts, with some coffee and chocolate
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a fairly small head atop it
Flavor: The taste is heavy roasted malts, light sweet, and dry roasted finish
Palate: The body is medium-plus, with average carbonation, and a somewhat dry finish
Overall Impression: This one was a very solid, roasty Porter. I enjoyed this one, a quite solid example of the style.

RoyalFlushing (322) - Mamaroneck, New York, USA - SEP 7, 2012
On tap @ Beer Necessities. Deep black with a small tan head and minimal lacing. Aroma is hints of roasted malt, coffee beans, and bakers chocolate. Taste is similar with roasty smokey flavor upfront followed by semi-sweet chocolate and cocoa. Limited mouthfeel, but very smooth with a nice dry finish.

Huhzubendah (2256) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 19, 2012
On cask at Barcade in Brooklyn, NY. The beer is near black with a half inch of head. Ample lacing on the pint glass. The aroma offers chocolate, malt, roast. A bit of cocoa in the flavor with a slightly bitter finish. Pretty smooth on the palate. Overall, this was ok. Hard to pass up a cask ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Theydon_Bois (6986) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2012
On tap at the Cask Bar & Kitchen, Manhattan - 01/03/12. Poured a dark brown with a tan coloured head. On the nose - roasted malts, cocoa, coffee and a puff of smoke. Taste as nose - add a little dark fruit, quite complex for a 4.7% ABV porter. Medium bodied and a smooth finish. Good well rounded and tasty porter for sub 5%!

bmerz (665) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 11, 2012
Draught at tasting room. Brown with nothing. Thin aims of dark malt, thin coffee and a little lactose. Buttery flavor on burnt toast. Sticky bitter clotting feel. Overrated.
