Definitely get the coffee, not as much the dried fruits. More of a nuttiness, really. Damn tasty, but the palette seems just a bit thin to me for a porter.

Roasted malts and coffee aroma wasps over a deep black pour with a little beige head. Very creamy and effervescent. Lots of deep malts mingle with the tanginess of centennial hops, tastes like a scoop of vanilla ice cream was dumped in this. Some roasted peanut flavor. This is very nice.

Poured a dark brown with okay tan head. Aroma was a ton of coffee mmmm. Flavor was nutty and coffee some chocolate late as it warmed. Mouthfeel was a little carbonated. Good beer.

This beer is the ideal Porter style. Look "porter" up in the beer dictionary and this is what you see (and taste). Dark, smooth, thick, chocolate, hints of sweet fruit and nuts. Not the most complex beer, but who’s asking for complex when you have such a high quality and consistent porter. Wow.

Beautiful beer, very smooth, mild and slick body with chocolate, plum, coffee and nutty notes. Basically, all the good stuff you’d expect from a porter, none of the bad stuff...although the body could’ve been more robust. Clean, smoky, soft, very drinkable. Classic!

Pours black with a very light tan head. Smells pretty roasty, with some pretty nice chocolate and dark mlats representing it. Very dense bodied, big chocolate, some light coffee, very roasty, nutty taste. Tastes bigger than 7%. Not a whole lot of variation between this beer and the brown except this one is alot heavier in its mouthfeel and body. Pretty smooth finish. Good brew. Impressed with this bewery.

Pours out a deep black color with a small tan head. Aroma is very robust. has nice hints of malt and roasted nuts. flavor was a bit interesting. tasted like your run of the mill porter with a nice fruit taste to it as the description says. I liked this brew.

Poured deep brown-rubby-ish color with a decent tan head. Aroma was coffee. Flavor was coffee, nuts, light chocolate support, some licorice. Finishes with a touch of bitter roasted malts and light hops. Much more simple than I was expecting, yet very enjoyable. Mouthfeel was lightly carbonated, and very smooth.
