Torontoblue (85) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 8, 2014
Bottled 13 May 2014. Opaque brown pour, ruby edges. Frothy mocha coloured head settles to a good covering. Aromas of roasted malts, coffee grinds, hops, dark chocolate, leathery, liquorice. Bitter, roasted flavours, resiny hops are there, too, dusty cocoa, dark chocolate, sweetness from the malts balancing things out nicely. Medium bodied, oily, slick mouthfeel, average carbonation. Bitter, dry finish. A really well put together porter; ticks all the boxes for me.

rbrazell (1701) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle from CBX. Pours black with a frothy brown head. Big roasted malt aroma, dry bitter chocolate, earthiness and touches of coffee with light ash. Smooth body with reflective flavor with more chocolate coming through. Medium body and relaxes carbonation. Nice stuff.

GIJOE (671) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JUN 5, 2014
Pours black with a reddish hue at the edges. Thick cappuccino-colored head that lasts long. Thin lacing. Nose is dark-roasted grain with coffee and chocolate notes. Taste is very well-balanced. A little burnt marshmallow coming through in the aftertaste. Full-bodied, creamy brew. Lively carbonation. Excellent! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Opaque black - brown beer, good pale tan head. Palate is light and airy and semi dry. Softish dark malts, very light roast. A little tangy. Touch of lactose. Trace of orangey fruits. Light semi dry finish. Pretty standard stuff and lacking the usual Maine fairy dust.

jgb9348 (4805) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Very rich deep dark brown coloured body with a thick, three centimetre tall rich brown head. Aroma of rich roasted malt, oatmeal, vanilla, tons of cherries and a light hint of oak and earth. Medium-bodied; Strong roasted malt flavour with some hazlenuts, vanilla, pecans and a touch of smoke at the end. Aftertaste shows a very subdued cherry flavour, a lot of roasted malt and somehow even more toffee and caramel sweetness coming from around the corners. Overall, a very nice porter that is very rich and shows a great character and a complexity that goes well for the style. I sampled this 50 cL bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 06-July-2013 for US$6.11 sampled at home in Washington on 25-May-2014. Brewed on 23-April-2013 // Purchased 06-July-2013 // Sampled 25-May-2014

Huhzubendah (2635) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 16, 2014
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..............
