jeremyh70 (742) - Missouri, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Poured a dark chocolate color with a nice light tan head and good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and can detect the oats. Taste has chocolate with a hint of sweetness that fades into a nice smooth roastiness. Brewed coffee flavor and a blend of mild hop and roast bitterness, along with some oat character in the background. Finished with mild roastiness and bitter. Mouthfeel was creamy with a medium/full body and moderate carbonation. Smooth, rounded flavors that cominent each other perfectly. Top notch Porter.

2014 bottle. Dark brown with a thick, dense dark tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, and a fresh, damp earthiness. Taste is roasty with milk chocolate and a nice brewed coffee bitterness. All the tastes combine perfectly. Mouthfeel is full, round and smooth. Wonderful porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SpongeRuiner (752) - Michigan, USA - OCT 2, 2014
Picked up a bottle while in Chicago. It pours into a very dark brown almost black color. A medium darkness mocha colored head. A slightly roasty hop nose with a chocolate coffee mixed in. A nice fresh and clean feel and taste is what I really notice first. You can tell it’s real quality ingredients. A solid roasty light coffee flavor. An aftertaste of a light chocolate with a creamy finish. A very nice feel. Nice and soft all around. Smooth on the mouth. Overall a nice coffee hopped bitterness with a great mouthfeel. Drinkable and long lasting. Good stuff.

beerbill (3458) - Laurel, New York, USA - OCT 2, 2014
16.9 oz. bottle. Pours black with a moderate light brown head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Very pleasant aroma of chocolate with a bit of coffee and mild roast as well. Very flavorful with ample chocolate, mild roast, and bit of coffee. Superb mouthfeel; well rounded and supersmooth on the palate. Silky. One of the best porters I have come across.

Complex roasty porter with citrus forward hops. Definitely worth a taste. I really liked it very much and would be happy to drink that again.

Really in your face aroma of chocolate, coffee, roasted malts and hops, wheat and oak. Medium body, carbonated, somewhat bitter. Taste is very similar to smell. Dark roast abundant, dominant components of cacao and coffee are refreshing and balanced.
