12oz bottle pours a dark brown/black with a thin tan head. Aroma chocolate malts and a fruity cherry Robitussin aroma. Taste of chocolate, coffee, oats, slight fruits, with a bitter earthy yeast finish. Pretty decent Porter.

Bottle. Pours dark brown thin tan head. Mild aroma of dark chocolate, not picking up much else. Medium chocolate sweetness taste. Picking up more roastiness in the flavor. Medium-heavy body, smooth silky texture, balanced nicely with mild hop presence and hint of fruit. Overall a good porter.

seymour (1591) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - APR 13, 2015
Tasted on tap in a mini Willybecher glass at the 2015 Schlafly Repeal of Prohibition Festival. It poured opaque brown, reddish at the edges, with persistent beige foam and lace. Loads of malt complexity: bready, toasty, roasty, great fruitiness and tartness of black malt, hints of dark coffee and dark chocolate, even some cool smoked traits. Good English-style hop balance: earthy, woodsy, subtle peppery spice. Medium body and carbonation with big round mouthfeel but still finished relatively dry, considering all that’s going on. Very well-crafted and tasty, tied with Right Proper Ornette for my festival favourite.

SteveOrz85 (52) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2015
12 oz to tulip. Poured near black, nice light tan head disappeared quickly leaving lots of lacing. Aroma is dull, light malts. Taste is lightly sweet and fairly smooth. Medium bodied with an oily texture. Average to soft carbonation. Nice, ever so slightly bitter, but smooth finish. Over all it is good. It is pretty much what a solid porter should be. Cant complain much. It is a porter, nothing to rave about. It is what it claims to be. Well done. Enjoyed. Would drink again.

Ron (2854) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 20, 2015
Bottle. Pours a nice dark brown with beige head. Great aroma with roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, earthy hops, and some dark fruit. Flavor matches the nose with mostly roast and light bitterness; dry, lightly bitter finish. The alcohol is hidden well. Medium body and carbonation.

Dark brown opaque color with cream dark brown head. Aroma is light roast and cocoa. Roasty sweet malt, caramel, toffee, dark chocolate bitterness. Nice balance of bitter, dark malt, and alcohol. Great Virginia brew.

Natai (104) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 6, 2015
On tap at Tortoise & Hare in Arlington. Pours dark brown with a light tan head and superb lacing. Solid roasted malt character with some nuttiness. Smooth and creamy that coats the palate with just a hint of bite.

I liked this Porter. The nose, taste, everything about it was what I expected from a standard Porter.

Pours dark brown with tan head. Roasted malt aroma with vanilla and coffee. Flavor starts roasted malt with sweet caramel, molasses, and vanilla. Some cocoa flavors in finish and finishing coffee. Really nice, roasty, flavorful porter.
