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

MiP (15028) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2016
Bottle at KØ16. Good roasted aroma, mild bread note. Almost black colour, seems cloudy. Fruity and bready flavour. Not very roasted, but has a good coffee note. Dry finish.

On tap @ the brewpub during RateBeer weekend. Reddish brown appearance with a light brown head. Chocolate, caramel, smoke, vanilla, and heavy chocolate in the aroma. Mint and rich chocolate in the mouth. Thin body, moderately sweet, light to moderate bitterness. Ok.

Dark pour with a thin brown head. Aroma is chocolate and roasted malt. Taste is roasted malt, touch of chocolate. Thin bodied but tasty none-the-less. Roasted malt aftertaste. Soapy lacing.

JanEric (1166) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - FEB 13, 2016
Bottle 65 cl from Lekkerbier. Brown, thick off white head. Aroma has chocolate, some coffee also and roasted malts. malty taste, some choco again, maybe a bit oxidized, it’s a bit empty. Medium carbonation. Short to medium finish, it’s a fair beer but maybe a bit oxidized. (tht 24-10-2015, drank 12-2-2016)

nearbeer (4673) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 12, 2016
22 oz. bottle. Pours deep brown-black with a 4x humongous spongy foam that takes an annoying amount of time to settle. Nose is cocoa, caramel, oats and a touch of tart berry. Tastes of dry cocoa, lactose and berry with touches of caramel, light ash and espresso. Near-medium body has a little too much fizz. Nicely balanced with a dry-roasty finish. Good beer but over-carbonated for my tastes.

Smagt til ølsmagning i butik Aroma. Bitter bitter lakrids og chokolade. God til en sød dessert.

Patersoi (133) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 24, 2015
Pours nice deep brown with clingy cream head. Aroma of mocha and vanilla. Then the taste hints of choc and coffee but a funky floral fruitiness that detracts from the essense of a porter. Some malt sweetness returns at the finish but the florally fruitiness never goes away

The coffee/chocolate flavors are very subtle...I even get a bit if a sour taste. It’s a nice looking porter though seems a bit watered.

Kosmokrator (802) - ITALY - NOV 27, 2015
Porter piuttosto classica, caffettosa e tostata come atteso, con una parvenza lattiginosa al palato che non guasta... se fosse una Stout ricorderebbe una Oatmeal.
