fiercepanda (505) - Missouri, USA - AUG 7, 2013
A black beer with a reddish tinge and a small tan head. The aroma is nice and simple cocoa and grain. The flavor is likewise chocolatey with a good oatmeal flavor and texture.

Bottle pour very dark brown cola. Nose chocolate, dark fruit, sweet malt. Taste initial slight bitter, roast, chocolate, and toffee. Roast on the muted finish. Nothing bad, but not as flavorful as desired.

holdenn (2078) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 7, 2013
12 oz bottle Pours a brown black with a thin creamy head. Some of that light black patent that is less intense than the mocha stout. Some of the creamy oats come out over time. Similar flavors with acidic roast and a touch of sweetness. Slightly bitter. Too much black patent but ok. 7/4/7/3/13

foyle (222) - Wyoming, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Appearance: Very dark reddish brown, almost black. Forms a puffy 2" inch head that dissipates slowly leaving significant lacing. Aroma: roasted and smoked grains, coffee/chocolate, earthy hops Mouthfeel: medium bodied and creamy. Slightly sticky. Flavor: complex for a session ale. This porter is robust with flavors of creamy oats, bitterness of chocolate and coffee, and an earthy hop bite, definite smokey flavor. Overall: A very good porter if you enjoy smoke flavor (not my personal taste)

deaconmike (360) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - JUL 14, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2013 Bottle at Local 3. Deep walnut with creamy head. Aroma of chocolate and roast. Taste was sweet with a slightly dry, bitter finish. The roast and chocolate flavor come through nicely. Body is a bit light and the beer goes down real smooth. Very enjoyable porter. On tap at Taco Mac 10/12/13. I found the draft version to have heavier ans creamier body. Very good.

chinchill (1617) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Pours a very dark reddish-brown. Nearly black but with just enough transparency to see that the beer is more-or-less clear. A vigorous pour only yielded a 1-finger tan head, and much of that faded away quickly. The head left irregular lacing behind. Aroma: Mildly sweet; malty with a faint hop note, and suggestions of spices, mixed with the aroma of toasted grains. T - the hops are just strong enough to lend some spicy and citrusy flavors but take a backseat to the strong flavor of dark roasted barley. Lasting, dark roasted malt finish and aftertaste with hints of oatmeal, hops, peat smoke, coffee and dark chocolate. M: smooth, lightly crisp; medium body thin for style; Very good carbonation. Overall: strong performance on all dimensions. Recommended.

Roasted malt and coffee. Smooth and refreshing porter..oddly. On the lighter side, but very enjoyable.
