pour was a rich dark brown/black with a high off-white head. aroma was slightly malty with sharp citrus hop scents. Taste was a good malt flavor of caramel and chocolate ending with a roasted character and strong hop finish of citrus, pine and resinous flavors. Medium body with no apparent oatmeal oiliness.

smaynard6000 (659) - Apopka, Florida, USA - OCT 2, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours black with a small creamy beige head. Roasty malt aroma. Tastes a bit like coffee with roasted chocolate malt. A bit of hoppiness in there too. Full bodied with creamy mouthfeel. Quite good.

Chudwick (2214) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - SEP 29, 2013
12oz bottle - pours black with two fingers of beige head with decent lacing. Nose is simply coffee. Sip introduces light pine/floral hops. Hoppy bitter for the style with coffee bitterness as well. Easy to drink. Not what I expect from a porter, but still a good brew.

Roasty malt, dough and yeast, char and toast. Full with a nice trailing finish. Perhaps a hint of coffee. A very nice porter.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2014 Pours deep red. Clear. Nose is a mellow blend of chocolate, coffee, toasty malts, coffee and other roasted complexities. Flavor is roasty toasty and some bready malts. Moderately dry finish. Medium light body with a watery gesture.. This was last sentence was from a re-rate. I really enjoyed this one when the fucking idiot beer bars in knoxville don’t pour it in to a cold glass when the beer is already cold. This is really solid and full of flavor when it warms up. Nice.

Draft at tasting room. Not as good as expected. Nice color. Relatively smooth but honestly, rather plain. No outstanding characteristics

From a 12 bottle shared in Avon, NC. Pours cola brown with an off white head with scant lacing. Aroma of caramel and toffee. Moderate carbonation. Smooth mildly bitter finish.
