5 oz. taster @ R.I. Brewfest 2 Feb 2013. Fantastic nose of chocolate, vanilla and coffee. It had thick tan head that laced the plastic cup, which is impressive. The flavor is wonderful. Vanilla and coffee throughout the sip with a nice chocolate malt backbone. A very faint hop in in there as well. I went up for seconds of this porter. Itís been awhile since I had a porter that is this tasty. It could be classified as a coffee stout. Well crafted.

tap at the brewpub - Pours very dark brown with a small tan head. It has an aroma of roasted malt with chocolate notes. The flavor is dark roast malt with chocolate. Itís a medium bodied, flavorful, solid brew with soft carbonation and a lingering roast mocha finish. Well done! Thereís an interesting range of ratings here. Either our tastes vary really widely or the quality does.

I had just finished a Sam adams Cream stout by the fireside, when I went up to the brewpub to try this I was very disappointed under fermented and seemingly pushed out for consumption with little regard to quality.

Casteel420 (59) - Bristol, Virginia, USA - AUG 23, 2006
Dark, almost black porter with a small light creamy head and good lacing. Smells like a cappucino with german malt beer. Tastes of coffee and chocolate with a bitersweet aftertaste. Pretty good porter, but a little thick for my tastes.

On tap at the brewpub:
Vanilla sweetness and roasted malts conjure up vague fruitiness...The thin body undermines the able roasty bitterness...Tiny, spaced bubbles prick the slick body, making it feel lacking...

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 1, 2005
At the Kennebec River Brewpub. Pours an opaque dark brown with a creamy tan head. Smell is roasty, sweet, dark malt. More sweet and creamy than bitter. Tasteís a bit like a latte. Sweet dark malt, hints of coffee and heavy on the milky/creamy flavors. Milk chocolatey vs bitter chocolatey. Creamy mouth with a light but persistent roasted smokey aftertaste. Good stuff, not too heavy or strong. A good session porter.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 6, 2003
Very dark chestnut brown with a rich tan foam. Rye bread and rice cake aroma – a little unusual in its dark malt aromas. Also noted some pear. Flavour shows a toasty backdrop, with again something odd…I think it’s just husky maltiness and toasty graininess showing through more than it should, without the melanoidins.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 19, 2002
Dark borwn to black color with a medium thick head and lots of lace. Slightly sweet aroma similar to chewing tobaco. Slightly sweet smokey flavor with a hint of coffee flavor. Heavy bodied and fairly dry.
