This was just an excellent beer. Draft at source. Came with a nice off-white head. Aromas of roasted malts, mild hops. Taste was rich and full with malty initial flavors blending into strong roasty flavors very smoothly. Smooth bitter finish balances out the malty flavors nicely.

Draft at the source. Dark clear maroon color, off white head. Aroma of freshly roasted sweet coffee beans. Taste is roasty and chocolatey.

Goodgrief (1789) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - JAN 26, 2011
On tap at Millys. Pour was dark...no head no lacing, nothing. It’s flat. The flavor was complex with chocolate, fruit and a bit of roast. But it’s flat....and that kills everything.

LiteWait (267) - New Hampshire, USA - JAN 16, 2011
Tap at Millys. Nice deep dark brown almost black color. Thick head that left substantial lacing. Aroma is intense dark chocolate, burned malts, slight char- brown nutty malts, and coffee. A little roast in the flavor- lots of chocolate malts, nutty, toffee, light fruitiness, and a good caramel middle- nice smooth finish. I agree with AirForceHops, the General would be proud!!

AirForceHops (3174) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 16, 2011
Tap at Millys. Nice deep dark brown almost black color. Thick head that left substantial lacing. Aroma is intense dark chocolate, burned malts, slight char- brown nutty malts, and coffee. A little roast in the flavor- lots of chocolate malts, nutty, toffee, light fruitiness, and a good caramel middle- nice smooth finish. The best brew in the session. The General would be proud of this beer!! It pared well with my steak tips.

puboflyons (2143) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 20, 2009
On tap of course. It pours brown to black with some ruby tints when held to the light. It is topped with a tan, foamy head. I really did not note any distinctive aroma. There was a freshness about it but no chocolate scent as is typical with a porter. The mouthfeel tended to be on the thin side. The taste had bitter and malty air to it along with a decent hop chaser.

Christian (11119) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2009
Black with a small off-white head. Aroma is fruity with licorice. Fruity sweet flavour with toffee and licorice, and a strong roasted charcoal note in the finish

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 15, 2009
Tap at Millys. Nice deep dark brown almost black and nice. Head ok lace. Aroma is intense fresh dark chocolate- and toasted malts, almost burned malts, slight char- brown nutty malts, and a slight herbal hop kick. A little roast in the flavor- lots of chocolate malts, nutty, toffee, light fruitiness, adn a good caramel middle- nice smooth finish. Great Porter.

A Mes rate: Gravicask at GBBF.
Black brown with no head. Fruity and raw, slight bready malt, delicate roasty notes. Very unrefined. Not great.
