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

Honestly, I was expecting more. Its a solid porter but nothing spectacular. Could be that I just got a bottle that had been stored too hot briefly. Somewhat bittersweet with a little coffee, little chocolate, but just left me feeling that the beer wasn’t any more exciting than the label. Just okay.

Poured up dark brown, near black, with a thick tan head that disappeared quickly leaving lots of lacing. Aroma is mild, light malts, coffee and chocolate. Taste is coffee, lightly sweet mild chocolate and very smooth. Slightly bitter, but smooth finish. Thick and rich. Nice porter.

Not enough toasty, roasty flavors for a porter IMO. Not a bad beer for sure but didn’t hold up to others in the flights I tried. Good body but very neutral flavor profile. More like a great lager than a porter.

Dark, dark porter with medium bitterness supported by good sweetness. Aroma with some grape aroma but in taste it goes to raisins. Rosty but not to rosty. All in all nice porter but nothing special for GABF 2015 winner in porter category. Thank you Sandra & Thomas H.

kramer (5735) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear brown body with a small wispy brown head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is very chocolaty with some roast, coffee, caramel, and slightly citrusy hops. The flavor is a little thin though, not a whole lot of chocolate malt showing thru, it’s more of a bland and slightly weak roasted malt flavor. Minimal hoppiness, just enough to help balance out the sweetness some. Light to medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Meh, a below average effort for the style.
