Pours a really dark brown with a thin but imposing tan head that sticks and leaves some nice patterns. Aroma is roasted malt covering a nicely hoppy background. Taste is a bit sweet, roasty again with a nice and clean bitterness. Flavors are dark chocolate, some dark fruit, coffee roast. Body is medium and mouthfeel is full and creamy with a low carbonation level. Nice!

Yum! Dark brown pour - not too thick, not too thin. Big fluffy tan head with tons of lacing. Roasted malty nose. Rich taste and mouthfeel. Bitter chocolate and floral hops in the taste.

0.5l bottle from Whole Foods Tribeca. This is a deep dark brown one, almost wanting to call it black in the glass and it has a nice big and really lasting brown chocolate top. Chocolate is the best word I can use to describe the aroma on this. It smells absolutely fantastic chocolaty and sweet. Milky chocolate blended with the darker more bitter kind and it has cocoa tones as well. I’m stunned how this brewer manages to hit that accurate good-spot in my nose time after time. It has lovely rich oily almost thick mouthfeel with a soft prickling carbonation level. Again, chocolate is the word here. Tastes like chocolate milkshake with a really good a pint of good grassy green hops. Smooth and so integrated flavors. A little bit of vanilla ice cream, chocolate, cocoa, mocha and coffee. Really stunningly nice this one! 20.06.2013

Bottle shared by Dr Silverworm. Poured a dark brown color with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate toasted sweet chocolate malt, hop and small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted malt sweet flavor with a medium complex dark malt sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid complex brew.

16.9oz bottle, thanks to Mike L. Bottled December, 2012. Shared with tmoney99. Dark brown color. Good thin light brown head. Nice dots of lace. Bigger body. Lighter, crisp, lightly soft carbonation, with a more dry finish. Good chewiness to the body. Nice bigger bitter hoppy taste, light sweetness. Very hoppy, for a porter.. Some resin, pine, spicy and citrus hops. Big bitter very dark chocolate, light roast, some oats. Just a very light bite to the taste, is the only fault I can find for this. Excellent malt profile, and a nice big healthy dose of quality American hops. Great hoppy bitter dark chocolatey porter.

Slipstream (2122) - USA - JUN 25, 2013
A big, persistent head rests atop this dark brew. There is a good deal of complex coffee and malt flavor, and a dash of something sharp in the finish. A very fine porter.

500 ml bottle. Pours pitch black with a big frothy head that fades very slowly and leaves some webbing. Aroma is creamy chocolate, roasted malt, musty hops, and light ash. Taste is creamy and hoppy. Bitter chocolate, light roast, and grassy hops. Thick, chewy, and creamy mouthfeel. Overall, it’s solid but a little too creamy and thick for me to love.

My bottle [500ml] shared with HogTownHarry, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o Glouglouburp. Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with an average size diminishing frothy beige head. Aroma of roasted malt and lots of leafy hops. Flavour’s the same, lots of leafy hops and roasted malt, with a big bitter finish -- simple but pleasant. Medium bodied. Pretty good.
