SpongeRuiner (1114) - Michigan, USA - OCT 2, 2014
Picked up a bottle while in Chicago. It pours into a very dark brown almost black color. A medium darkness mocha colored head. A slightly roasty hop nose with a chocolate coffee mixed in. A nice fresh and clean feel and taste is what I really notice first. You can tell it’s real quality ingredients. A solid roasty light coffee flavor. An aftertaste of a light chocolate with a creamy finish. A very nice feel. Nice and soft all around. Smooth on the mouth. Overall a nice coffee hopped bitterness with a great mouthfeel. Drinkable and long lasting. Good stuff.

beerbill (3605) - Laurel, New York, USA - OCT 2, 2014
16.9 oz. bottle. Pours black with a moderate light brown head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Very pleasant aroma of chocolate with a bit of coffee and mild roast as well. Very flavorful with ample chocolate, mild roast, and bit of coffee. Superb mouthfeel; well rounded and supersmooth on the palate. Silky. One of the best porters I have come across.

Complex roasty porter with citrus forward hops. Definitely worth a taste. I really liked it very much and would be happy to drink that again.

Really in your face aroma of chocolate, coffee, roasted malts and hops, wheat and oak. Medium body, carbonated, somewhat bitter. Taste is very similar to smell. Dark roast abundant, dominant components of cacao and coffee are refreshing and balanced.

Derek881 (1253) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Poured from the bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a thick pour and black color with slight deep brown hues and a very large foamy-creamy dark tan head with very good retention, respectable cling and lacing. Its aroma featured a sweet roasty chocolate scent along with some toffee, caramel, and touches of molasses paired with full-bodied earthy and grainy hops. The taste had a full, rich roasty chocolate sweetness mixed with some light earthy and bready bitterness, and light notes of dark fruits and coffee. The body was exceptionally wet and creamy with a very smooth mouthfeel without much carbonation and a slight presence of alcohol and warmth at the end. Great beer, thanks for the birthday present, Siobhan!

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 10, 2014
500 mL bottle courtesy of Tyson, served in a stem glass. Pours deep chestnut with a moderate tan head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has big notes of smoke and roasted malts, along with espresso, chocolate, earth, herbal hops and subtle spice. The flavour is slightly sweet with roasty-smoky malts up front. Soft caramel notes come through in the middle, along with subtle hops. The finish is long and spicy with big roasted malts. On the palate it is medium in body with a dryish texture and soft carbonation. Overall, a nice smoky porter with prominent roastd malts. 2014-09-09
