COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark, robust and silky-smooth, with many flavors of roasted, toasted and caramel malts. Porter is an old-world beer style, so popular that it helped start the industrial revolution. Taste the history.

Lakewood, Oh. - Rozi’s Fine Wines - 22 oz bomber. Pleasant, but not overly apparent aroma of chocolate and potting soil. Sweet flavor with some milk chocolate notes, a touch of fresh potting soil and some roasted notes. Mouthfeel is nice and silky like the name suggests. Solid midwestern Porter.

Bottle thanks to Davinci?Dark brown with small creamy tan head. Smoky and cocoa with dry roasted malt aroma. Roasted malt is also the most prominent flavor with sweet cocoa, a little cherry and red fruit, smoky, pretty tasty. Medium well carbonated body that is pretty "silky". Another great one from Hoppin Frog.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 18, 2008
Courtesy of lb4lb. The aroma is very concentrated sweet dark fruits, alcohol, dusty earth, mild chocolate and some kind of spicy hop notes. The body is flat black and holds a thin tan head. The first sip offers, again, very sweet dark fruits like blackberry, cherry and blueberry. There is also ample chocolate, mild roast and the finish is looong and sweet. Decently tasty brew, but sweeter than I expected.

EithCubes (5104) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 10, 2008
Bomber. Light black malts and a lot of toffee in the nose, underlying yeastiness with caramel on top. Dark chocolate with roast and a little lactose. Near-pitch pour with a creamy, rocky light brown head. Watery body is lightly crisp and certainly dry, fruit (blackberry and currant, some raspberry) mingling with lighter roast and toast. Lightly bitter dark and milk chocolate. Hop prickling on the back end. Nice, balanced porter, smooth and very easy-drinking, but some of the Skittleous flavor components just aren’t for me.

22 oz. bottle - thanks to fiver29 for the trade; pours dark brown cola and clear along the edges; almost no head and crisp, roasty aromas; nice level of sweetness too; medium body with very slight syrupy texture as it warmed up; some coffee, lots of nuttiness; no surprises or tricks, just a straight up knock down porter
