Tap at the brewery. Pours clear black with a medium, frothy beige head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is roast and chocolate malt with prunes and earthy hops. Flavor is dark malt dominant, dark fruits, light hops and medium bitterness with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

PhillyCraft (3228) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 4, 2013
Draft, pours blackish brown with small off white head, nice lacing. Notes of chocolate, roasted nuts, dark malts, plum, and wood. Wouldnít say its full bodied but more light to medium for the style. Light carb. Easy to drink porter and the best I tried at Long Valley.

Pint on tap at the brewpub in Long Valley. Dark brown color, minimal head, aroma is sweet, roasty, malty, and yeasty. Taste is strong sweet with some bitter, with good complexity. Great body, not watered down at all, somewhat creamy texture, with a sweet but crisp aftertaste. As mentioned in previous ratings, this is a great session beer and pairs up well with typical pub fare.

RGDave (113) - Lebanon, New Jersey, USA - JAN 27, 2011
Pours a smooth dark, dark brown color with a khaki-colored head. Not too much head retention, just enough, and the full roasted nuttiness of the aroma is prevalent. Attack is crisp and toasty, but the full maltiness quickly is apparant, creamy body and a perfect hint of coffee on the back end. Wonderful porter, my favorite of this style to date! Get a growler to go :-)

This is probably as microbrew as you can get. This was at Long Valley Brew Pub. This is one of the best beers they have.

acurtis (53) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 28, 2010
Appearance - Very dark amber in color. Almost no head, very little carbonation Smell - roasted caramel and earthy notes. Taste - smooth and mellow, coffee like with a hint of smoke Mouthability - light and mellow Drinkability - easy, I can drink several of these in one sitting Serving type: Growler / nitro-tap I like this beer because it goes down smooth. The abv is not listed but I expect it to be in the 5 range. Not hot at all but gives a nice buzz. I have tried all the beers Long Valley has produced in the past year. Several of them are good but this is my favorite. I had this from nitro-tap on their outdoor patio Sunday for lunch and brought home a growler. The only difference was the pint i had in a shaker at the brewery had more head than Iím getting off the growler just one day later.
