COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a rich, robust porter, cleverly crafted to integrate the aromas and flavors of espresso coffee malt and bitter-sweet chocolate malt. Inspired by owner Brendan Moylans’ daughter Chelsea, this is an American-Irish Style Porter that dark beer drinkers will love

Dedollewaitor (13390) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2010
Bottle @ Friday Night Ulfborg Thing. Thanks to J&C. Pours dark brown nearly black with a small creamy beige head and lacings. Nose is heavy toffee and caramel. Flavor has again . .toffee and also a bit of roasted coffee and mocha notes. Medium and smooth palate. Could get cloying if I were to drink a whole bottle by myself.

RichardGretton (4176) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2010
Bottle. Virtually a black beer with a strong light brown head. The aroma is lightly roasted, and the flavour is roasted with a vinous, malty and bitter flavour. Overall a reasonable strongly roasted porter.

Bomber from Sixteen Tons. Dark brown pour with a creamy tan head and a little bit of lacing. Smells of nuts, roast, coffee, nice chocolate note. Tastes of caramel, chocolate, roast and coffee, very dry finish. Tasty brew.

Bottle, BoE. Very impressed with this. A chocolatey porter, with loads of flavour and character. Easy drinking, plenty of body.

Ughsmash (7001) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 9, 2010
Bomber. Poured cola brown with a nice-lookin’ cap of beige head. The aroma picked up sweeter, milky chocolates with burnt coffee laced through it.. fresh hops didn’t provide any distinct character, but complemented well. The flavor found more of the coffee, both at the malty core and as bitterness on the edges.. smoky char right on the back.. this transitioned well through the mouth. Medium-bodied at most on the palate.. light, but prickly carbonation.. a few too many residual sugars.. overall a very drinkable and tasty brew.

JaBier (4528) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - SEP 8, 2010
Sample at the brewpub on 8/8/10. Pours clear darkest brown with a thick tan head. Roasty aroma that is also fruity and a bit meaty. Caramel and chocolate malts hit the palate first, then a roasty grilled bread finish.

The pour is a dark brown color with and average, pale tan, pillowy, fizzy head which is mostly diminishing and leaves just a bit of scattered lace. The nose is much more intense than the average 5% beer; raisins, bitter chocolate, sweet espresso, dark toast, maybe even hints of molasses and candied dates. The flavor is much of the same with raisins and candied dates, dry bitter chocolate, flour-less chocolate cake, hints of espresso, and some faint dark bread toast. The palate is lively, moderately full, thick, and a bit drying even. The finish is dry with bitter chocolate, dark bread toast, espresso, and just a bit of the candied date notes. This one really surprised me; I was expecting a simple, drinkable, somewhat boring porter, but what I got was a very flavorful American-style beer. The dryness and espresso notes gave a slight appearance of an Irish porter but the other flavors were more similar to a Baltic porter. Other than the average appearance, this one was very good.
