pineypower (2734) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Bottle from...damn I forget. Pours out a very attractive brownish, almost black color with a big tan head. Aroma is of roasty coffee, chocolate, light bitterness. Taste is complex, nice chocolate notes, medium roast coffee, light earthy notes, silky smooth mouthfeel, light touch of bitterness in the finish. Have yet to be let down by a Maine beer.

keepersj12 (2932) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Real nice porter. Pours almost black with a thin tan head. Lots of suspended particles floating about. The aroma is loaded with chocolate, coffee, roast malts and a hint of smoke. The flavor follows, nicely balanced and quite drinkable. Finish is smooth and tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

deyholla (8120) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours a dark brown with a grayish brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma has roasted malts and sweet dark grains with a nice sweetness underlying. Flavor starts with sweet dark grains and a sweet chocolate that are joined by coffee and roasted malts.

Viper666 (2787) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 3, 2013
Bouteille 500ml. De couleur noire-brune et opaque. Nez de malt rôti, de chocolat noir, moyen de houblon herbeux, légèrement résineux et aux notes fruitées (agrumes), léger de noix avec des notes de pain brûlé, de caramel et de café. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-doux ainsi qu’une texture moyennement crémeuse et aux notes huileuses. Goût de malt rôti avec des notes de café et de pain grillé dès l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute rapidement un léger-moyen goût de chocolat noir avec des notes de caramel et quelques traces de tabac. Parallèlement, une légère-moyenne amertume de houblon herbeux et légèrement résineuse se développe jusqu’en finale où l’on y décerne également des traces de noix. Post-goût plutôt long et un peu sec, moyennement amer de rôti, de houblon herbeux aux notes résineuses, léger de chocolat avec des traces de café.
