LSKennedy (15) - - JAN 2, 2012
12 Oz bottle in a English Pint. Poured black, as it should, with a One Finger head that quickly disintegrated. Very smooth texture, and tastes of Chocolate, coffee and perhaps Wood? No lacing to be had, but still a fulfilling brew. If I need a porter on the cheap, this is definitely a good choice :D

Bif (1697) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 18, 2015
Bottle. Pours a deep mahogany color with a small head. Aroma of roasted malt with hint of coffee. Taste of roasted malt coffee and bit of dark chocolate. Nice bitterness and the finish is quite dry. Moderate body, smooth with a malty feel. Nice beer without being overly complex

Patrickctenchi (4840) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 30, 2014
Bottle: Deep brown, rubied, with a small tan head. Cola, chocolate scent. Taste is moderately bitter dark chocolate/cocoa, flat cola. Light, earthy-nutty bitter. Not too bad, pretty watery, though.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
Boutip (5185) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 19, 2015
Bottle: Poured a clear dark color porter with a medium size light brown foamy head with OK retention and some light lacing. Aroma of light chocolate and roasted malt notes is enjoyable. Taste is a mix of chocolate malt with some roasted malt notes with some light dry finish. Body is light with good carbonation. A bit short on complexity but well drinkable.

loubar (154) - Los Gatos, California, USA - NOV 17, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Trader Joe’s. Nose is light and slightly skunky. Taste is a little smoky but that is where the porter similarity ends. From there it’s mildly acidic and watery. Ugh! Fortunately I only purchased one bottle.

rosenbergh (8560) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 24, 2014
12 oz can. BBE J/15. (Trader Joe’s) Greenville, SC.
Dark reddish brown colour with a small white head. Toasted malt, sweetness, some hops and some cardboard in the aroma. The flavour is toasted malt, dryness, cardboard and some mild hops. Thin.

SoberDave (172) - Escondido, California, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Pours brown with a foamy head. Aroma of strong bitter coffee, a little cocoa and bourbon. Very bitter with faint caramel malt flavors, nothing really going on, not totally pleasant. Heavy bite on the tongue overpowers any subtle flavors that might be there. Cheap but wouldn’t buy again.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 8/20
Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Serving: Bottle. Dark brown pour with a short lived tan head. Stale nose with a bit of roast and caramel. Weird acridic bitterness on the tongue. Light caramel with a touch of roast and earth. Not much else. Weak body. Pass on this one.

slowrunner77 (7100) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 29, 2014
"for $5.99 a sixer (or a buck for a single) this is a steal. not anything special per se, but a more than serviceable porter. pours black with thin khaki head. a tad thin. the aroma and taste are a bit of a hybrid between an american and london porter...nutty, toffee, roasted malts. quite pleasant , and a pleasant surprise at this price point."

shrubber85 (9019) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 23, 2014
Bottle. Light ash, hay, and chocolate malt aroma. Chestnut brown with small head. Sweet cocoa malt and moderately bitter herbal flavor. Very light body. Okay but very light.
