500ml bottle. First time trying Maine Beer Co. Pours very dark with creamy tan head. Some lacing. Definite coffee aromas. Tastes of coffee, chocolate, caramel, and a hint of raisin. Great balance of malt with hop bitterness to compliment the chocolate. Very good porter that’s more complex than most.

boto (1912) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - MAR 23, 2014
500ml bottle: This one pours an opaque, dark brown color. There was a dense, crea,y tan head on it that lingers a bit and leaves some lacing. The aroma is nice. Roasted malts and some coffee. Hints of some caramel and chocolate. The taste is good. Some roasted malts and coffee notes on top. Subdued chocolate in the background. Slightly biter: no sweetness at all. A very nice beer.

Deep dark brown beer with a thin foamy beige head. Nose of caramelized sugar, molasses, and cocoa. Flavor is less sweet than the aroma would lead you to believe. It starts with some dark chocolate, light roast coffee, and vanilla bean, which is then capped off by a medium bitterness that lingers. Good, mellow flavor, but I miss some of the roasted flavors I would like in a good porter. Still, a good beer that’s worth trying.

Bottle. Nice peat flavors, roasty malt characteristics, sweeter than the average as well which probably explains the ratings.

Bottled@vPBF III. More or less black colour, mediumsized brown head that leaves good lace. Aroma is chocolate, ashes, some liquorice and toffee. Flavour is ashy, roasted malts, some toffee and mild liquorice to it. Pleasant and quite easy to drink.

Bottle. Pours an opaque dark brown. Aroma is rich, chocolaty with hints of citrus hops. Full dark roasty body with hints of burnt/toasty malt. Has a piney bitter hops finish. A nice range and expression of flavors. A bit highly carbonated yet still smooth and with a lingering aftertaste.

Bottle from trade (phatdog1?). Have had several beers by this brewery and all but one have been disappointing. I think it is the amount and type of hops used. Almost black pour. Some chocolate malt and light coffee in aroma. Taste has some chocolate in beginning but quickly moves to ?? Hops that should balance just neutralize and basically leave no taste. This was bland at end of day
