This robust porter has a full body with some hints of chocolate from the chocolate malt and midnight wheat. The mild noble hop aroma showcases the roasty flavors and subtle fruit and spice notes of the artisan-roasted Fair Trade/Organic coffee of Black Mountain, NC’s Dynamite Roasting Co.

12 oz. bottle shared by DrSilverworm- thanks again, Chris! Pours a cloudy brown color with almost no head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, leaves, and earth. Flavor of tobacco, earth, coffee, spice, chocolate, and toast. Light-bodied, with moderate to medium carbonation and a roasty mouthfeel. Nice coffee porter.

"at first, a little light on the nose, but it opened up quite nicely. light bodied and easy drinking, yet had a smooth texture and flavor that was definitely enjoyable...mostly dark coffee, roasted malt, and a hint of chocolate. Thanks Lou!"

12 oz bottle (one by me, one by jmborggren). Pours brown with a medium beige head that doesn’t last. The aroma is pleasing, roasted malts, coffee, light chocolate notes with some mild earthy notes. The flavor has much of the same; roast, coffee, chocolate and some earthy notes. Maybe a touch thin. Decent overall.

Draft. Pours near black with a beige head. Coffee aroma, with roasted malts and light sweetness. The flavor has sweet coffee, light roasted malts, and some floral hoppy bitterness. Pretty good.

22 ounce bottle on the bus, backseat .. . pours dark brown .. light foam .. . some cheap coffee and brown bread crust .. light mouth, finish- like most highland beers .. . . then they would have been extremely uncomfortable and later on had the gnarly shit of their life.

drowland (7106) - Georgia, USA - FEB 29, 2012
2/29/12. 12oz bottle thanks to decaturstevo! Dark brown pour with a nice, thick brown head that cuts in half but sticks in spotty rings. Nice aroma with sweet and dark chocolates, slightly tart and acidic, but nice coffee, and smooth maltiness. Nice smooth chocolate and coffee combo in the flavor with lingering coffee and a hint of tartness and grain. Nice.

b3shine (6925) - Indiana, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle to snifter (thanks jmborggren). Looks solid; a semi-opaque cola with off-white lacing. Smells and tastes of bitter coffee and dark malt. Average on the palate. Solid, but not spectacular.

PorterPounder (6422) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 12 oz bottle. Pours jet black and thick with a sticky khaki colored head that leaves a nice coat of lacing. Luxuriant aroma with plenty of strong black coffee notes, some bittersweet chocolate. Flavor has some hints of licorice, a bit of creosote, strong espresso, bittersweet dark unsweetened chocolate and a back end of potting soil. Nice dry mouthfeel. Extremely enjoyable.
