COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A classic dry porter with coffee, toffee and roasty notes in both the aroma and flavor. Black in color with a refreshingly dry finish. Reminiscent of the porters of old before the days of stouts.

Bottle from Liz. Pours brown/black with a creamy tan head. Aroma is chocolate with a little coffee and maybe a touch of anise. Med + body. Flavor is very dark chocolate with some gritty near-burnt malt and with a little coffee coming along. Anise? Maybe not. Definitely dry, but not particularly bitter. More like astringent from the burnt malt.

Lorenasa (154) - Florida, USA - SEP 12, 2011
Pours a dark brown nearly black with a small tan head. Aroma has coffee and chocolate notes. Tastes very much as expected for style with just the right amount of bitterness.

beerfest5 (1201) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 21, 2011
A very nice surprise given where we were staying in orlando was not exactly a beer Mecca at any stretch of the imagination. Nice black color, almost black ipa-ish in it’s aroma, and although not extremely hoppy like a bipa, still very delicious

PorterPounder (5959) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2011
Orlando, Fl - Whole Foods - 12 oz bottle, Very dark brown pour, brief off white head. Nice earthy aroma, black dirt, coffee. Flavor has a bit of chocolate, some black coffee and a bit of black dirt. Mouthfeel has some nice chalkiness to it, but ends up a bit oily. Decent.

SHIG (3840) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - MAR 11, 2011
Bottle at Disney Garden Grill: Poured a deep black with a light brown head. The aroma was roasted malts and bakers chocolate. The taste was what I expect of a porter by style, very chalky with baking chocolate with just enough malt to break it up. The finish is dry and doesn’t leave me thinking it should be in a stout category as most new porters do.

Lubiere (10767) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2011
A deep dark porter with a thin brown head. In aroma, a very pleasant coffee grain, bitter chocolate, nice burned point. In mouth, a classy porter with bitter chocolate, light cherry fruits, a bit light but good. On tap at brewpub, Jan. 7 2011,
