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

Aquilo (622) - Berkeley, California, USA - FEB 28, 2010
A decent porter all around. Black with little or no head. Aromas of coffee, toffee and chocolate. Flavor is moderately bitter with a little sourness in the finish. Tasted at Moylan’s side by side with the Irish Dry Stout. Very similar, but the porter has that hint of sourness and toffee.

arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2010
22oz bottle $5, 5%ABV. Dark, dark brown, almost black. Smells a little roasty, nothing special. The flavor is actually not half-bad, some coffee, some roast, good stuff and extremely easy to drink. I think I finished the bottle in less than an hour.... Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-04-2010 17:56:48

bottle. deep brown body, chalky medium brown head. solvent and evaporated milk-tinged aroma of chocolate malt, roast and toasted oatmeal flakes. dense and frothy without being weighty. well-attenuated. moderate to heavy roast astringency with some mild malolactic notes (malted milk balls, milk powder). dry and ashen finish.

Bottle at the Sudwerks beerfest. Pours very dark brown with a creamy tan head. Deep rich chocolate aroma. Medium body; creamy carbonation. Flavoros of chocloate, burnt malt and light coffee. Decent bitterish finish. Goes down a treat.

hoptimist (99) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 7, 2010
Roasty aroma with bittersweet chocolate and caramel notes. Medium brown with ruby highlights. Tan head that dissipates quickly. Medium-low carbonation. No lacing. Malty sweetness up front with good hop support. Some astringency from roast. Medium body and carbonation and a bit creamy in texture. Nice sweet malt attack with a hoppy and astringent middle and a fairly lengthy and balanced finish. A good robust porter that I would have again to satisfy a porter craving.

dyetube (1374) - Hurst, Texas, USA - AUG 6, 2010
This beer pours a black with a medium tan head that dissipates quickly. The aromas are chocolate, coffee bean and oreos. The mouthfeel is quite thin and bitter almost watery. This wasn’t that great but it wasn’t bad either. It could have been much better. Cheers!

Ughsmash (7508) - 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.

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.
