BLADT (656) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle pour. Matte black with beige head. No lacing. Handsome. Inviting aromas of dark chocolate, fresh brewed espresso, and mild wood chips. Creamy, yet chalky. Forward with roasted malts, rye bread and some hop zip on the back. Well crafted.

Damn, it is good. Thick dark brown malt body feels like velvet on the tongue. Smooth roast. Chocolate/cocoa, coffee, soft alcohol note and tinge of sourness in the finish.

reebtogi (4437) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 12, 2014
500ml bottle pours deep black color with a generous light brown head that retains well and leaves some really nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark chocolate and toasted grains. Taste is a dark chocolate malty sweetness balanced nicely with a toasted grain and citrus hop bitterness. Medium to heavy body with good carbonation which teases the palate nicely. A very well done brew.

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 (1702) - Florida, 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 (701) - 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.
