chinchill (1954) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 9, 2014
12 oz bottle served in a ansifter. Pour is blackish and opaque with a bubbly head that soon reduces to a thick ring. Aroma: coffee dominates and smells more like brewed coffee than beans. Enough dark roast to show even with the strong coffee. Flavor: black coffee and dark roasted grains in about equal measure. Both linger on in the aftertaste where there’s some (unobjectionable) char as well. O: medium+ body; Properly carbonated and fairly smooth.

Pours dark mahogany with a small tan head. Aroma is all coffee. Taste is like an espresso with a kick. Nice coffee bitterness with a creamy mouth feel. A delicious porter.

ARH (457) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2014
On tap poured into a shaker. Mocha like smells of sweet coffee and milk chocolate comes through, but they’re fairly mellow. It pours a dark, opaque brown-black body topped by a medium tan ring with a runny lace. A medium sweetness is supported by a light bitterness. The texture is watery and slick, with very little help from a mostly flat carbonation. The medium body finishes with smooth mocha notes, supported by caramel, and a hint of nuttiness. The finish is mostly espresso in flavor and grittiness.

rollinsr (384) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - JUN 1, 2014
Pours black to very dark brown with virtually no head. Aroma is dark chocolate and nutty with a healthy java tinge. Flavor is well rounded with smoky dark fruit character. The sweet smoky flavors blend well with the dark malt and espresso flavors. Very enjoyable.

jkwood04 (4031) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 23, 2014
12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, some coffee, light smokiness, some dark chocolate, and light dough and bitterness. Flavor the same. Average texture. A pretty good beer.

Shared thanks to my boy Weezel. Color was dark with a nice tan head. Poured into a sniffer. Aroma is strong of coffee and chocolate.Taste is missing for a porter.

Weezel (207) - Florida, USA - APR 9, 2014
Awesome aromas of dark chocolate, smoke and strong coffee. Taste is bitter with hints of the chocolate and coffee shining through and the charred malt and coffee contributes to the bitterness. Good but needs more depth.

Bottle from clt85. Thanks Lane. I wasn’t that impressed with this one. Not much coffee and a little bland and thin porter
