Bottle - This one pours a deep reddish black with a VERY thin head.. odd for a porter.. Aroma is roasted malts and roasted malts.. nothing jumps out at you... Now, for the taste.. as everyone before me has said.. VERY VERY watery for a porter ... this needs some work.. the flavor is decent.. rather simalar to a barley wine.. i dunno im not a fan but its decent.. 10/20

Iíve had this beer several time and Iím ashamed Iíve never rated it... it is a go to dark. Itís got a medium body but a big flavor, making it excessively drinkable. There is a lot of roasted notes, I donít pick up on the chocolate as much and really pleasant dried-fruit notes. God this beer is great!

Very smooth beer. Pours dark dark dark. This beer gets better the warmer it gets. Roasted/ toasted notes are delicious. Great porter!

A nice dark porter. Not as thick as you might expect. Slightly chocolately with a good balance. No real aftertaste, which is a positive. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

a slight hop bitterness blends well with a deeper malty flavor...i didnít get any chocolate roasted hints though as the description suggests. very filling. i could barely finish two of them. but tasty!

A good dark beer. Very malty with a sweet smoothness thatís not oppressive. Not very hoppy at all. Full thick body.

Bottle. Pours very dark brown, nearly black. Very small white head that disappeared quickly. Predictable coffee and chocolate aroma accented by caramel. Smooth feel. Malty, but not overly so, and well balanced with the hops. Slight coffee after bite. Oatmeal flavor came out as it warmed a little. I gotta say, we make some tasty porters here in NC.

Very black in color, smooth roasted aroma. The beer has a good contengency of roasted flavor and hops and leaves a bitter impression on the palate. Definitely worth a try.
