Bottle shared with Mdaschaf. Roasty aroma, nicely balanced between chocolate and piney hops. Black color, ample tan head. Taste follows nose, with chocolate, good bitter hoppy bite but with a a really nice, roasty pervasive malty backbone. Medium body, moderate carbonation, medium-length roasty finish. Overall: An unexpected and delicious treat. Thanks to Mdaschaf for sharing this!

Roasted caramel chocolate maltiness with sweet oaty finish. Very nice porter that pours jet black with medium body and some foamy fuzziness. Great offering from Maine once again.

Pours a dark black with thick brown head. Has a strong chocolate malt aroma. A delicious taste with chocolate, malts, grains, and some smokey flavors. Has a sweet chocolate aftertaste with some lingering smokey flavors.

Bottle from Philly Craft. This was a really good representation of the style. Nice notes of roasted malts, coffee, oatmeal, dark and bitter chocolate, yet it finishes sweet and roasty. Well done!

When a porter is this silky smooth with chocolate undertones, it makes me happy. Right amount of everything. Solid.

Delicious porter. Something like an imperial stout. Lots of chocolate, caramel and dried fruit in the malt well balanced against crisp pine and citrus notes from the hops.

Flight at brewery. Definitely robust. Pours stout-like- thick and dark with a nice beige head. Dissapates to a loose, soapy appearance but has staying power. Good lacing. Usual dark notes on nose and palate- chocolate, coffee, bit of smoke. Decently bitter but not overly- good balance. These boys are definitely into hops- in all styles. Fairly heavy bodied for a porter. Smooths out and mellows as it get warmer. Nice.

tectactoe (2718) - Michigan, USA - JAN 27, 2015
Bottle: Deep brown body, appears more solid & black once it’s in the glass. Slightly leathery tan head foams up nicely & sits for a bit before slowly receding, leaving some splotchy lacing behind. Aroma has huge notes of bittersweet baker’s chocolate with undertones of roasted malt, black licorice, mild plum, a hint of smoke, & a very small touch of soy sauce. Nice balance of some earthy hops in the flavor with a kiss of bitterness. Roasted malts lead the way with a large semi-bitter chocolatey tone. Subtle notes of licorice, cacao, soy, & figs hang in the periphery. Getting a lot more coffee bean in the flavor as well, more towards the finish. Not really sweet, but not overly bitter, either, so the balance is pretty solid. Medium-thick body with a substantial creaminess. The roasted dark chocolate gets heavier with time & warmth as the glass goes on. Good stuff.

bottle. black under a stable small brown head. dark chocolate, a little red wine, and fruity hops aroma. flavor is on the bitter roasty side, not sweet, some caramel in finish. also quite hoppy and higher end of the abv for style. its a very nice drinkable porter.
