COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our robust Porter shows bittersweet flavors of coffee and dark chocolate. It has very complex malt character enhanced by yeast fruitiness.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. It pours a dark brown with a lasting light tan head. Nice lacing too. The nose roasty with slight prune notes. The flavor has a good bit of roast bitterness, nice earthy notes, a little smoke, and slight wood. Fairly full bodied with a medium finish. Maybe a bit heavy for a porter, but still pretty tasty.

guzzler67 (1526) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JAN 3, 2013
Large mocha colored head with good lacing over a dusky body. Aroma of roasted malts, molassas and bitter chocolate with a mild metallic off-note. Modestly hopped, lactose-like sweetness with hints of dark fruit. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel leadiing to a long lasting finish.

Nice porter that had a good balance of coffee and chocolate. Silky smooth with a beautiful dark color and small cream colored head.

BVery (6961) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Tap at the brewpub. Dark brown pour with a nice foamy tan head. More sweet than roasty, with some sweet chocolate and maybe a little cherry. Good beer!

burg326 (3877) - Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2012
12 ounce bottle pours dark brown, aromas of roasted malt, coffee, light chocolate, and some grain. Flavors were a nice blend of coffee, malt, and chocolate. Light on the palate, nice porter overall.

Iphonephan (3629) - McLean, Virginia, USA - OCT 28, 2012
On draft at j Gilbert’s in McLean Va. Pours very dark brown with a tan head. Sweet malty aroma. Notes of roasted coffee and chocolate. A very nice porter.

BREWMUSKCLES (2300) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 21, 2012
smooth, somewhat creamy and substantial mouthfeel that is exactly what makes a great porter. sense of caramel and dark cocoa with a malt and hop infusion evenly and exactly layered. just a bit of vanilla rum and that broth like hint that says beer or rather porter. this is my idea of a great porter.

mcox90 (1588) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Another porter from my trade with RABinVA. 12 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with an inch of beige head. Roasted malt aroma with some bitter bakers chocolate. Taste is more bitter than sweet. A bit ashy. Still, a decent porter.
