Mahogany color with a taller light tan head. Aromas of toasted to roasted malt and hints of coffee and dark chocolate. Dry flavors with some roasted malt and hints of ash. I get the roasted malt just need a bit more pale ale to mix and give this one some added depth. 5/12

drowland (7772) - Georgia, USA - JAN 25, 2016
12/24/15. 12oz bottle while in IL for Christmas. I kept thinking the box said "Candy Dancer" and that it was going to be a peppermint porter or something, but it’s not. Which is fine by me. Almost black pour under a small tan head. Roasted malt aromas, coffee, dark chocolate, some fruitiness, light acidity. Smooth flavor, a touch light, hint of coffee and chocolate, caramel, cream. Not bad.

ajnepple (4702) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 25, 2015
12 oz single bottle into a shaker, purchased at Hy-Vee Wine & Spirits - Muscatine. Dark brown appearance with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, toasted/breaded malt, roasted grain and a slight touch of dark fruity esters. Similar flavor, adding hints of coffee, caramel and toffee. Mild malt sweetness balanced by a light to mild bitterness (earthy/roasted) over a medium body. Solid porter overall.

Brown. Nose of candied plums, prune, and sugary molasses. Flavor is dark fruit, plum, sugars, and mild bitter cocoa/roast. Okay, but not that great.

thegreenrooster (3848) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 26, 2015
Pour is a dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is some roast and a bit of sugary sweetness. Flavor is dry and does have a decent roasted malt with some black coffee bitterness. Finish leaves that coffee roast on the tongue after the swallow. This is ok. The best of the 3 I just had from this brewer. Decent roast albeit thin and watery mouthfeel for a porter.

Caramel, chocolate, vanilla, notes deep brown color. Very good, easy drinking. Clear beer drinkers, this will help you understand that all dark beers are not scarey.
