This is a traditional porter, made to warm the bones. Nearly black in color, Stovepipe Porter has a rich palate and a roasted, hoppy and slightly herbal aroma.

magsinva (1105) - Virginia, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Bottle from TWM sterling - pours pitch with cream head. Aroma is coffee and woodsmoke. Taste is on the watery, bitter, dry end of the spectrum. Overall, drinkable but like drinking ashes, with the dryness.

Bottle. Pours deep, dark brown with thick, frothy beige head; good retention and some lacing. Aroma is roasted and chocolate malts, caramel, toffee, earthy hops, figs, raisins, and some woody notes. Flavor is roast malts forward with supporting earthy hops, dark fruit esters, chocolate, and light toffee; dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle:   Dark brown, ruby or garnet hues, moderate to large frothy light beige head, spotty lacing.   Roasty nose, semi-sweet, cocoa and some chocolate, along with some lactose.   Moderately hopped on the tongue, remains a bit sweet (sweeter than most), with a nice roasted background mixed with a bit of dark chocolate or cocoa.   Nice!   I like this in that its not overly hopped.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, although it does coat well.   Slight ash on the finish, remains roasty with some bakers chocolate like background.   Fairly tasty!

Bottle. This porter has some nice roasting and liquorice flavors going on. Worth a 6er.

GnarlyGnome (852) - Fairfield, Ohio, USA - APR 14, 2013
Draft: dark brown, almost black, with a tan head. Like roasted chocolate... Aroma and flavor. Good, but nothing to write home about.

VALIS (229) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Roasted malt smell, a little chocolate. Very smooth, crisp Porter without giving up taste. Not watery, just balanced.

reberiii (498) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2013
12oz pour from bottle. Dark, cocoa foam. Bitter finish with a slightly thin pallete. Enjoyable, but not elite.

Bulk_Carrier (3884) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - FEB 7, 2013
It pours a dark brown leaving the same color body with a one inch off white head that lasts for about thirty seconds. Some nice standard light foamy lacing appears around the sides of the glass. No carbonation is seen rising. The smell centers around the coffee with some chocolate in the background. Some light honey appears. The taste is pretty much the same, but in a good way. The palate is about a medium with nothing harsh on the tongue, just an overall standard feel. With the ABV where it is, this is still a very drinkable beer. Overall, this is your typical American Porter, nothing special, but nothing bad.

hfmejias (1273) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Poured black with thick beige head (very nice). Aroma is of roasted malts hints of smoke. Smoky flavors with touches of caramel or molasses and coffee; leaves you with a dry finish, is definitively a beer made to warm you up as a porter should nice representation of this style of beer.
