Tmoney99 (13080) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 9, 2011
Tap sample. Poured a dark brown color with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted malt, spice and chocolate aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted chocolate sweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid complex brew.

Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of chocolate, yeast, coffee and a little smokey. Taste is coffee and chocolate.

jbruner (3783) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 7, 2016
Pours a deep blackish brown from the bomber with bubbly tan head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma and taste of chocolate malt, cocoa, hint of fruity yeast esters, and a mild vanilla back end. Nicely done porter, but nothing that exciting.

Notes of oatmeal and simi sweet chocolate a real the core to this beer. Average body. Very warming and drinkable. Quite good.

Beerman6686 (6053) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2015
Poured a darker brown with a beige head. Aroma of caramel and moderate roast. Flavor similar, a bit light, not very robust and a tad on the watery side.

AdamChandler (4239) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 15, 2015
A burnt brown with a 1 finger off white head. Smokey aroma with burnt chocolate. Burnt taste, smoked tobacco and fudge. Thin body. Lots of bitterness at the finish

Bomber. Roasty. Light cocoa powder. Slight nuttiness. Minimal sweetness. Thin. Basic Porter to style.

scarletfire65 (1293) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 26, 2015
Tasting at Hackney’s Printers Row. Black pour with a creamy mocha head. The flavor has a strange creamy nutty chemical tinge to it. Almost like a buttery diacetyl thing going on. Weird. I couldn’t get through a 5 oz. Tasting pour.

Definitely one of the best porters out there, this one is tough to beat. Pretty amazing for the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the taproom. Really nice..caramel, chocolate, roasty with a nice creamy mouthfeel. Seems like it’d be a bigger beer but nice (moderately) low ABV. Very nice.
