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.

Dark brown, shows alot of light at the edges, revealing an orangey-brown color, otherwise opaque. Served too cold in a shaker glass, but as it warmed.... Nose had alot of bittersweet chocolate, though restrained on the whole. Also featured touches of cigar tobacco, and perhaps vanilla or caramel. Flavor is mostly dry roast with a hint of iced coffee in the finish. Slight lingering ashiness. Body is rather thin. 1/3 of the way into this pint and I’ve lost interest.

On tap at Brewery. Nice dark pour. Aroma of roasted coffee. Taste was all black coffee and dark chocolate. This one was way too dry for me. Prefer more sweeter porters.

TomDecapolis (4501) - Milton, Delaware, USA - FEB 14, 2008
On tap at the brewery. Pours a deep black with a smaller creamy/bubbly tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Flavor of milk chocolate, roasted malt and some coffee.

Draft at brewpub. Poured dark brown color with medium brown creamy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium roasted coffee and chocolate aroma. Medium to full body with a dry smoth texture. Medium flavor of roasted malt with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid brew.

this a porter that is a bit too thin for my interest. a little licorice in with an adequate flavor profile of chocolate malt and light hop finish. seemed the bitterness and carbonation were not quite balanced and i found that distracting. nice dark color seemed to enhance the dissapointment.

GABF. Dark pour. Some chocolate on the flavor, but never got it off the aroma. Somewhat difficult to get any aromas. Flavor was watered down too. Not a favorite.

dark brown, wispy beige head, dark chocolate aroma with a touch of sweetness, rich chocolate flavor, nice sweetness brings out the chocolate and gives it a slight milk chocolate character, touch of roasted mixes with a light bitterness for a light bitter finish,

Sampled at the taproom. The best beer these guys do, by far. Dark brown pour with red edges. Smallish mocha colored head. Decent retention and some nice lacing. Nose of espresso beans, coffee grounds, tobacco, cocoa and dark malts. Smells pretty damn good. The taste is a bit disappointing after how good it smells, but it’s still not bad by any stretch. Reminds of a weak cup coffee mixed with hot chocolate. Light to medium bodied, creamy palate. Finish is lengthy, roasted notes all over the place and a sweet milk chocolate ending. I wish they bottled this, I would have brought a few six packs home.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 14, 2007
On draft at The Ravenous Pig. Thin looking, dark cola-brown body. A small light tan head quickly dissipates to a wispy film. Minimal, tiny dot lacing noted. The aroma shows dry roasted barley, roasted coffee, and not a whole lot else. The flavor shows primarily bitter coffee, roasted grains and perhaps a little bit of woodsy oak. Medium duration coffee finish. Very thin, weak body for the style. Over- carbonation makes for an unpleasant, fizzy mouthfeel. Dry and roasty throughout. One-dimensional and uninteresting. Not something I would go back to.
