Black color with brownish head. Roasted malt aroma, lightly cheesy, some cardboard. Smooth mouthfeel, roasted malt flavor, some dark chocolate, light peppery touch and some liquorice; very moderate residual sweetness. Correct bitterness.
Well brewed, harmonious brew.

Very solid porter! The more beers I have from Maine Beer Co., the more I am falling in love with them....have to get my hands on ’Lunch"! Pours a dark chocolate and flows smoothy throughout all your tastebuds and leaves a chewy dark chocolate finish.

These Maine Beer guys know what they’re doing. Black pour with some froth and pretty good lacing. Aroma of cocoa, nuts and roast. Chewy mouthfeel. You need molars for this stuff. Rich flavor...cocoa, chocolate, nuts, fig. Sweet but balanced on the hops. This stuff is awesome.

Dark as it gets, no hint of light through it. Pours a nice head then come down but never disappears. Good lacing. Taste is nice and malty. I get lots of chocolate, a bit of coffee, and a good amount of roasted goodness. Worth finding

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.
