16oz bottled November 25, 2012. Served at cellar temperature.

Pours black with a one finger brown head that leaves some nice sheets of lacing and holds a persistent cap.

Aroma is heavy on chocolate, milk chocolate, baker’s chocolate, cocoa, semi-sweet chocolate chips, some coffee, nice roasted malts, decent bit of dark fruit, a whiff of cardboard, some caramel, toffee, little to no hops. Very good strength.

Flavor is roasted malts, some chocolate but not as much as in the nose, coffee, caramel, toffee, some dark fruit, a little cardboard again, earthy hops, light alcohol, somewhat astringent. Astringency fades as it warms and opens up.

Mouthfeel is medium-plus bodied, pretty creamy, a little sticky, good carbonation.

Really nice Porter, one of the better ones I’ve had.

Pours a deep mahogany with a surprisingly big, tan head. Aroma is big and great: roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Flavor is the same. This porter has a great mouthfeel. A really tremendous beer. To this point, this is my favorite brewery that I’ve discovered in 2013.

500ml bottle in an English pint. Pours very dark brown with a lacy, tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, hints of coffee, and a good amount of hops for the style. Flavor a nice blend of the dark malts with a decent amount of hops. Thicker texture. A really good porter.

pepsican (1471) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - MAR 18, 2013
Near black with a khaki head. Inviting chocolate and caramel aroma, some oatmeal and coffee are also involved. Roasty, a touch of tobacco and leather come in to play on this one. Creamy mouthfeel, tight carbonation. Has a tough mineral quality to it, reminds me of some english porters in that regard. Bitter finish. Not bad at all.

500 ml bottle courtesy of jtclockwork. Thanks. Pours an opaque dark brown color with a huge monster tan head that has good retention. The aroma is medium strong with chocolate, mocha and earth. The taste, like the aroma, features dark chocolates, mocha and earth. The palate is thick and creamy with soft carbonation. Finishes long, dry and leaves some lingering burnt toast flavors. Overall: My second brew from these guys, and its a good one too. This brewer rocks and deserves some hype.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2013 Another great offering from Maine Beer Co. Pours deep dark brown almost black with nice off white head. Aroma is chocolate, slight coffee, and pine. Taste is roasted coffee and chocolate. Also well balanced with nice bitterness from the hops. Really enjoyed this beer

Sickboy282 (1115) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Pours a deep brown, almost black hue with a thick, long lasting, frothy, slight of white head. Aromas of toast, chocolate, with a dry, pleasant hoppy/ cleaning agent smell.... interesting. mouth feel is edium bodied with flavors of coffee, pine, citrus and a touch of vanilla and roasted nuts. Pretty hoppy for the style.
