Aroma is amazing. Smells of deep chocolate and coffee. The porter flavor is nice and the mouth feel is good, however the actual taste is missing the coffee and chocolate. Wouldn’t have again. Tap

SG111 (452) - New York, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Bottled 12/16/14. Slightly cold temperature. Pour into tulip. Black with a large frothy tan head. Aroma as you pour it is roasted malts, big chocolate flavor, coffee notes. Really just smells right. The chocolate is fantastic. Flavor is roasted chocolate, tons of it, surprisingly intense coffee, and a great body on it. I mean it is 7.5% which is strong for a porter and the body on it reflects that accordingly. Not thin or watery at all. 5 months old and hops held up well. As it warms, it gets better. chocolate richer, coffee notes a little sharper. Another amazing beer from Maine.

demannu (152) - New Jersey, USA - APR 13, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2015 Dark brown thick looking pour. Froathy tan head. Roasted malt nose (nothing special). Strong medium body (very satisfying). Definitely more of a hops presence than I’m used to in a porter (not a bad thing). Good but not great.
