12/28/13. 12oz bottle from Exit 18. Almost black pour with a small tan head that fades. Mild dusty chocolate aroma, faint soy sauce and ash. Mild flavor with milk chocolate, a hint of metal, light acidic sourness, a certain savory aspect, not quite soy sauce, lingering ash and dry maltiness. Eh.

Poured from a bottle it is a dark brown color with a slight head. The aroma is that of roasted coffee and the taste is a balanced coffee flavor with a crisp bitterness that resonates on the palate

Foxbush (1219) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 2, 2013
12 oz bottle The porter poured an opaque dark brown with full tan head quickly dissipated. The aroma was of roasted barley malt with a touch of chocolate. This is a smooth porter with balanced sweetness that was advertised. This is porter with a light body and soft carbonation. The finish was complex with some licorice and roasted malt.
