The beer is near black with a thick, soapy, beige collar. The aroma brings beautiful roast character and milk chocolates. Chocolate forward with moderate bitterness in the back. Smooth on the palate with a zesty kick from the hops. A solid example of the style. My primary complaint with Maine Beer Co. is the price. $7 per 500 mL is too much to pay for porters, IPAs, pale ales and the like.

Excellent porter! No monkeys were harmed in the making of this beer..... And also, here you can experience & appreciate the roastiness a porter can have before it crosses over into full-on smoky-smoke territory. I like it very much and need more, soon..............

Pours a nice oil like black. Funky on the smell, almost off putting, this has been aged. Dark fruit, biscuit, and cocoa. Finishes nice.

Classic porter. Strong, very roasty. Nice sugar flavors, especially molasses and chocolate. A little smokey. Medium level of resin hops which give it a nice balance. Really good.

Bottle thanks too beernut. Found this in the back of my closet. Bottle is 3 months past the drink by date so lets keep that in mind haha. But it pours a nice dark brown with a thick mocha head. Aroma is a lot of chocolate peanut. it’s great. Taste is a little flat. Expected since the bottle is too old. You can tell the hops have really dissipated. But I still get the chocolate. Very roasty. I wish I had a fresh bottle because with the hops still present I think this would be a great beer.

1 PT 9FLOZ bottle. Pours a dark, dark, dark brown with a one finger tan head. Aromas of molasses, black licorice, light cocoa, coffee, light caramel, and light dried fruit. HUGE flavours. Molasses, caramel, coffee, roasty malt notes up front that leads into dry coffee, light ash, huge roasty malt, and light citrus notes in the dry finish. This is a BEAST of a porter, and highly recommended. Full on awesome.

Enjoyed on tap at Local Option for a quick stopover beer. Appearance is a rich pitch black with a moderate tan head that laces to the glass. Aroma of lightly bitter chocolate with hints of cocoa . Taste is very drinkable, great roasted chocolate notes. Good stuff!
