Dark brown with starburst red-to-yellow at the edges. 1-inch of fine creme-brulee head. Highly effervescent. Fades at a moderate rate. Aroma is evergreen and burnt coffee flavor combining to give an earthy bark. Tad bit of soy sauce, bread, and wet forest floor. Body is medium with moderate-to-intense carbonation, soft/fine feel with little burn. Watery-oily. Flavor is evergreen, leaf, burnt coffee and toast, bitterness that lingers. [Personal note: reminds me of Otter Creek Stovepipe Porter which I didn’t like very much 4 years ago.] An interesting porter, very burnt, earthy, some sappy evergreen bitterness. It seems like an excellently brewed beer, but for me, the malt presence is to low, and it needs more sweetness.

500ml bottle from Beer Culture, New York

Pours pitch black with a smooth white head. Aroma of roasty malts, oatmeal, hints of chocolate, coffee and dark chocolate. Taste is smooth, sweetish and roasty with loads of oatmeal, coffee and chocolate. Finish is smooth, roasty and hoppy with some oatmeal, coffee and chocolate notes. Quite good.

Pours a deep black from the bottle with bubbly tan head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of nice roast and soy, typical english yeast. Taste is more toward dark chocolate and roast. Thin and easy, clean, well done porter.

Pours a black with a thin brownish head. Tons of chocolate and coffee in the nose. Some citrus notes too. Full body and a huge amount of roasted malts that give this beer a strong and long coffee finish. In the beginning, there are some light citrus, prune and dough flavors. I like the touch of floral hops in this Porter. Great mouthfeel! One of the best Porters I ever had!

Pours dark chocolatey brown, tan head. Aroma is that of chocolate and roasted coffee. Taste is robust, roasty, chocolatey and had a slight hint of hop floralness. Body is a little on the lighter side, very creamy. Great beer!

jcr (2256) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Bottle. Deep brown/black body. Large, frothy tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate, vanilla, light burnt notes, cocoa powder, coffee. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, moderate carbonation. Nice balance between sweet malts and roasted malt/hop bitterness. Light acidity, tartness in the finish. Light graphite taste, but probably due to the age of the beer. Good beer.
