3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle into pint. Thick, creamy brown head that lingers. Mahogany, nearly black. Nose is odd -- mineral, almost chlorine note. Chocolate and malt lie underneath. Taste is dry coffee and more chocolate. Not surprisingly, reminiscent of their stout but drier and a bit more roasty. Long finish, more chocolate and stout notes. Pretty good, a bit richer and more cocoa than I typically like foor a porter, by decent.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Thick, dark tan head rests atop a very dark brown, basically black body. Immediately smelled a sweet roastiness laced with chocolate and coffee. Very rich tastes of cocoa and dense cold brew coffee. Mild earthiness from the malts, well-balanced. Creamy texture with some hints of cola. Slightly bitter, hoppy finish. Definitely would recommend this hearty porter.

Bottle pour at a tasting. Much thanks to bitbucket. Pours a dark reddish brown with very little head. Dark fruit and very mild coffee aroma. Heavy body for a porter. A lot of fruit flavor, medium chocolate finish. A little on the sweet side. Overall very enjoyable.

Roasted caramel chocolate maltiness with sweet oaty finish. Very nice porter that pours jet black with medium body and some foamy fuzziness. Great offering from Maine once again.

Pours a dark black with thick brown head. Has a strong chocolate malt aroma. A delicious taste with chocolate, malts, grains, and some smokey flavors. Has a sweet chocolate aftertaste with some lingering smokey flavors.

Bottle from Philly Craft. This was a really good representation of the style.
Nice notes of roasted malts, coffee, oatmeal, dark and bitter chocolate, yet it finishes sweet and roasty.

When a porter is this silky smooth with chocolate undertones, it makes me happy. Right amount of everything. Solid.
