BillWyce (745) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Draught at Chestnut Hill location. Poured opaque nut brown with a small tan head. Aroma of nutty and roasty malt with a touch of coffee. Body is medium-to-full and lightly oily. Roasted coffee flavor with a light nuttiness underneath. The roasty note lingers pleasantly in the finish.

Sparf (137) - Östersund, SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2014
Maj 2014. Choklad och lakrits i den tämligen lilla doften. Samma komposition går igen i smaken. Ligger även med en lite syrlig karaktär. Blaskig och tunn, tyvärr. Eftersmaken är i det närmaste obefintlig.

keanex (1503) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - NOV 4, 2014
On tap at Iron Hill Vorhees.
Appearance: Deep opaque chestnut with a creamy dark tan head.
Aroma: The aroma is complex with nuts, brown sugar, chocolate, roasted malts and a dash of smoke.
Taste: Clean intro, slightly nutty. Mid taste picks up some chocolate with roast and caramel. Finish lingers lightly of smoke.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: Great porter, really drinkable. This is on par with the greats. Very affordable.
