ARH (487) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2014
On tap, poured into a sampler glass. Milk chocolate and light nut aromas emanate from the nearly opaque, oily red brown beer. Thick, creamy tan head tops it off and a thick surface is retained throughout. Lots of lace is left behind. The taste combines medium amounts of sweet with light bitterness. The oily, medium bodied beer is nearly flat with only a light zip. Orange, coffee, and caramel flavors fill out the body and it finishes with a creamy, lactose, and milk chocolate quality. Orange and cream flavors lightly fill the aftertaste.

Draught at Jak’s Grill, West Seattle
Black color. The aroma has some chocolate and light roasted malt. More roastiness in the flavor, and some coffee, more than chocolate. Dry finish.

Draft at Strangelove. Pitch black pour. Very large frothy beige head. Nicely blended dark sugary malts with dry hops. Slightly smoked chocolate coffee mousse. Surprisingly creamy body. Liked quite a bit.

On tap.A: Opaque black with a thin cappuccino head. N: Big chocolate, tasty coffee, hints of vanilla and licorice. Toasted wood. T: Sweet, bordered by espresso bitterness. M: Medium body, a bit watery. Crisp on the tongue from the carbonation. O : Decent porter, not really a standout in any sense. Clean and drinkable, not terribly complex.

jefcon (1404) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Nice a dark pour with earthy, chocolate and slight wood smoke on the nose. Very grain-oriented on the palate, with a husky mouthfeel and a very long finish. Dry. Slight bitterness, plenty of malts.

Black, creamy black head. Smells like chocolate milk. Flavor is toasty, with a hint of coffee, plus a bit of pine in the finish. Satisfying beer.
