Black like I love them to be. Coffee cocoa smell and taste. Good brew from an even better state.

jgb9348 (5524) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 6, 2016
Dark brown coloured body with a bit of a clear brown glow and a decent, two centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of earth, light nuts, malt, peanut butter and a bit of caramel and unfinished sugars. Medium-bodied; Malty flavour at first with a hint of peanuts, some light earth and some cardboardie flavours that finish with some definite breadiness and touches of yeast. Aftertaste has more of the same with the malt hitting first, then some subdued earth notes and finally a bit of unfinished sugars and yeast. Overall, a decent beer - showing some good qualities, but overall, about average. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Charleston Beer Exchange in Charleston, South Carolina on 19-April-2015 for US$1,79 sampled at home in Washington on 05-May-2016.

Cybercat (4857) - Georgia, USA - APR 29, 2016
Can. Pours dark chocolate brown with a thick and persistent tan head. Aroma delivers anemic but still tempting roast malt, chocolate and caramel tones. Flavor is definitely bolder, presenting chocolate, roast malt, caramel and molasses tones. Mouthfeel presents firm body and good fizz. Get pluff, but if you get too muddy, please contact Lyft or Uber.

Beachmaster (415) - Oklahoma, USA - APR 23, 2016
On draught at the brewery. Pours a medium brown, with a moderate khaki head. Nose is roasted malt, and the taste follows. Classic porter flavor of dark roast malt followed by just the right amount of hop bitterness on the finish. True to style, and quite tasty.

TheHopster (1032) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - APR 10, 2016
(12 oz can). Very unique aroma, roasted and nutty. The flavor is roasted malt. Not a standout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Onslow (1361) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - MAR 6, 2016
Pour from a 120z can. Inky black brew with small tan head, decent head retention. Light aroma of toasted malt with chocolate overtones. Taste is light toasted malt up front, a little sweet, grows to be dominated by toasted grain notes, tapers to a lightly sweet finish. Stays rather sweet throughout. Very tasty but light, apparently by design, for a Porter. I could see swapping this for a Vienna on a warm day when I still would like something more on the toasted malt side.

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2016
Poured into a snifter. 3.0 A: Black color. One and a half fingers of frothy beige head. Retention is below average and a short ring of lacing is left. 3.5 S: Thereís some roastiness, but itís a lot more toasty and nutty. Chocolate and tangy caramel. Itís okay but it could use some more maltiness. 3.25 T: The taste is distinctly tangy. Tangy caramel to be specific. Again a mix of roast, toast, and nuttiness. Itís on the drier side and could benefit from more maltiness. Aside from that, it has a good flavor profile if the tanginess were put in check. 3.25 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lacking in creaminess, but still refreshing. 3.25 D: Itís decent, but has some problems. ★ 719 characters DavoleBomb, Feb 10, 2016

Tap at Closed for Business. Based on other ratings, I think this may be a bad batch or something. The porter is there, but thereís just huge diacetyl presence. I mean, like full-on buttered popcorn, both smell and taste. Iíll try this again when Iím back in SC to give it a fair shake, but something went wrong here.
