crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - APR 2, 2014
A black body with a tan head. Aroma had a robust coffee presence initially. Hints of chocolate and mild licorice. Flavor seemed to be mostly coffee malts. There was some sweetness to it. Almost one dimensional. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gripweed57 (1111) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - NOV 25, 2015
12 ounce bottle from Trader Joe’s. Translucent brown color with a moderate fluffy light tan head. Sweet roasted malt nose is redolent of cocoa. Thin bodied with slight notes of cocoa and weak coffee. Slightly lactic with little more to offer. Skip this one.

Quite interesting but nothing special. Watery at some point and a little thin. BUt great to enjoy in a good moment.

ttoadee (1078) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 13, 2015
Medium brown pour, disappearing head. Little coco on the nose. Bittersweet. Middle is bittersweet chocolate, dollop of molasses, and some dark malt. Finish wants to lean dry, but still comes out a tad sweet. Not bad, not great.

elamericano (34) - Moscow, USA - AUG 10, 2015
Bought at Trader Joe’s in Queens, NY. This can hardly be called a porter. Sweet smell, thin taste, light-bodied, bitter, slightly toasty. Again, the least porterly of the porters.

nimbleprop (6342) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 9, 2015
12oz bottle at an art event, can’t tell you how it looked. Smells heavy with malt and licorice. Flavor is chewy malts, molasses and licorice. Full bodied, lightly sweet finish.

Bif (1798) - 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

Boutip (5357) - 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 (156) - 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.
