Bottle from Fratto. Smells FANTASTIC. Pours very dark with a tan head. Smells of coffee and malts. Very strong coffee flavor. Fantastic beer. Love it.

Braudog (5903) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Bottle. Typical American porter pour ... dark brownish, black, thin head. Aroma straight from the office coffee pot. Drinks with a stark, java-based bitterness, unusually delicious. Good example of a coffee-based dark beer. Love it. (#5017, 5/10/2013)

Aggie80 (785) - Michigan, USA - APR 12, 2013
Strong coffee/chocolate flavors in a solid brew. This was great after a day touring Charleston and the environs. Nice head and good lacing, the undertones are strong and cut through just about anything. Not for the faint at heart.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 11, 2013
Piggly mother-trucking Wiggly. Awesome that this Pig had such a nice bottle selection and growler station. Dark brown pour, moderate carbonation, and a thinnish look overall. Understated chocolate and burnt coffee in the nose. Fairly thin body, as suspected, and the flavors are a bit muted. Some papery nose, some burnt bean char, dark chocolate overtones. Nothing special.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Bottle from my brother from a Hilton Head trip. Pours dark brownish black with minimal khaki head. Nose is roasty dark malt, huge coffee, hot peppers of the chili and jalapeno variety. Tastes roasty choc malty, with notes of coffee and chili pepper in the finish. I’m pretty sure no hot peppers were used in this, but it damned well tasted like it , and it tasted good, stubby.

Draft at Brewvival. Dark brownish maroon color, almost flat. Aroma of cofee, nutella. Taste is espresso and dark chocolate.

burg326 (3884) - Florida, USA - FEB 8, 2013
12 ounce bottle pours a cocacola brown color with esspresso, roast, light chocolate and sweet malt. Flavors are mostly light esspresso with some sweet malt thrown in. Thin on the palate for my liking of a porter but a nice beer overall.

ben4321 (4095) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle from Charleston Beer Exchange, 12/7/12

Aroma: The nose is coffee malts, with some caramel and chocolate notes as well
Appearance: It pours a nice clearish brown color with a slight orange hue and a beige head
Flavor: The taste is a little sweet and a little roasty, fairly malty, with a light coffee bitterness
Palate: It has a medium body, leaning light, it is smooth, creamy, and a little chalky, and a lightly dry finish
Overall Impression:  This one felt pretty solid to me. It has a nice mouthfeel and a decent flavor. There’s a nice coffee component as you’d expect. Solid stuff, but I’ve had plenty of more interesting coffee beers.

Bottle. Dark with a lot of coffee flavor. Light body with an intens taste of coffee
