Appearance: very dark brown, half a finger of creamy tan head shrinking quickly to a collar. Aroma: dark bittersweet chocolate, roasted coffee beans, bit of vanilla. Taste: as the aroma indicates, but a little sweeter. Finish: lingering roasty sweetness, with coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, and a nice smooth oatmeal note on the palate. Notes: Really enjoyable porter, would drink again. Bottle from Roots Market in Olney, Maryland.

While the aroma and color are barely there, the flavor definitely is there and impresses. Well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nimbleprop (5205) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 3, 2014
12oz bottle at Red Hen in DC. Pours a deep brown with some creamy, thin, off white head. Nose is alright, some cocoa pods, some gristy character, a little dusty, some caramel. Flavor follows right along, sweet malt, caramel, a little cheap rootbeer, some chocolate too, light bread crust. Watery finish. Unoffensive.
