On tap at Torst. My maiden beer there. Pours a dark brown cloudy color with a caramel colored head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, caramel, alcohol and slight slight spice. Sweet creamy chocolate taste with coffee notes and slight spice pinch. Perhaps a slight vanilla to add silkiness. Love it. Best porter I have had. It gets as close to a stout as a porter will get without crossing the line.

Bottle shared by Drew, thanks! Pours a near black with a brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a nice a good amount of roasted malts with some dark grains and a hint of dark fruit. Flavor has a decent amount of roasted with a bit of light chocolate, dark grains and backing light dark fruit.

Bottle from gnosis.. thanks.. Pour is black with a brown head. Lots of it. Chocolate, roasted malt, some light hops on the nose. Taste is diviine... semi-sweet chocolate, some light hoppiness, wood, some smoke, and some bitter coffee. Great balance. Creamy smooth mouthfeel with light carbonation. Same resiny texture as Jimmy. Real winner. Best porter Iíve had.

Amazing thick pour for a porter. Nice smell of smoke and malts. The palate is balanced damn well. Taste is thick and full of malt and just the right amount of smoke. Mouthfeel is thick, one of the best I have ever tried.

500ml bottle. Black pour with decent mocha head and some impressive cling for the style. Beautiful beer. Nose is very roasty with plenty of dark chocolate and coffee like characteristics. Taste is a heavy shot of roast, with coffee, dark chocolate, and a touch of smokiness. Very nice on the palate. Oily and creamy. One of the best in this style for sure.

Bottle - thanks, Miller! Straight up one of the finest porters Iíve had in recent memory. Firm, hefty-looking dark brown pour with a nice firm beige head. Consistent carbonation, nicely sticky lacing, and a rich, silken mouthfeel capped off by an enjoyable chalky finish. Richly flavorful, itís the kind of hoppy porter that isnít so overly hopped that it loses the substance and personality one craves from the style. Chocolatey, roasty, with just a faint touch of dark fruits. Elegant and just superbly done.

great porter, a bit stronger than I typically prefer, but it goes down without a hitch. Slight roast, leather, bitter chocolate, with a subtle chocolatey sweetness in the finish. perfect mouthfeel.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2013 Draught at George Keelyís NYC. Pours dark brown with a creamy mocha head. Aroma is of chocolate and espresso. Taste is slightly bitter: roasted coffee and malts as well as chocolate and some dark fruit/ The finish is smooth and the bitterness does not linger. Really nice.
