Tap @ brewery shared with HopTsing. Very dark with thin dissipating head. First sniff reminds me of wine, then I get chocolate, then light coffee, and a sour note. Light roast flavor. Lots of carbonation. Not too bad.

Poured from 22 oz. bottle at Dixie Bones BBQ in Woodbridge, VA. Opaque, near black with a huge brown head and fair lacing. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, roasted malt and toast. Taste of chocolate, roasted coffee, roasted malt, earthy hops and a hint of molasses. Medium/light body and medium/low carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Received in a trade from RABinVA. Drank this brew with a fantastic birthday dinner of Falafel, African Mango and Avocado Salad , and Carrot Cake, all prepared by my darling wife. Pours Mahogany with ample tan head. Flavor notes of coffee, chocolate, and citrus, in that order. Weak scent. Glad I got a chance to give this a try. Bottle - Trade from RABinVA - Atlanta, GA

climberbob (108) - Virginia, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Not much to say about this porter, which reflects the general lack of aroma and flovour. Mild roasty and malt flavours, a touch of bitterness, and a slightly unpleasant metallic aftertaste. Biggest downside is that it is almost watery - not something I look for in a porter.

Scubatrip (596) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - FEB 11, 2012
From the bottle, pours black with a thick tan bubbly head. Aroma of chocolate and molasses. Fruity taste, not unlike a Shiraz with carbonation. It’s, ok.
