Poured from a bottle into my Big Hops sniffer. Dark ruby color with no head or lacing at all. Had an aroma of chocolate, coffee and nuts. No hop smell or anything else. Medium body with a rich, creamy texture. Great coffee taste which would make a great dessert beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Coffee and Carmel notes. Wish there was more creaminess to the porter as it's finishes slightly harsh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smells of caramel and chocolate malts. Black pour with a thin tan head. Medium sweetness and bitterness. Nice creamy mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Great Porter.

Strong coffee flavor start to finish. Drank ice cold and caught a nice toasty caramel flavor on the back end. Wonderful in small doses.

12oz at my place by myself while playing video games on a Friday night. Pours black with creamy milk chocolate head. aroma is thin, coffee, toasty, caramel. Taste is very nice roasted malt and big coffee. Its too cold to get much else; and I’m not waiting for it to warm up. The night is young.

ROGUE (2200) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - SEP 24, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a dark black color with a light tan head. Aroma of bitter roasted coffee, slightly burnt, notes of charred wood and tobacco. Taste is less charred, has some sweet sugary malt in back, a faint touch of wood. Decent blend of coffee and roasted malt. Light body, soft and smooth, assertive carbonation.

On cask. Viscous, creamy body. Roasty grains accent the silky coffee notes which reach my nose and palate. Isn't too bold on the coffee front. Delicious, sessionable. Moar please!

On tap at Craft and Growler in Dallas. Pour is clear brown with a small tan head that quickly dissipated. Roasty, chocolatey, sweet vanilla, dark fruity, bready, somewhat earthy, and licorice in the aroma. Taste is light coffee, toasty, bready, dark fruity, raisins, toffee, caramel, and figs. Medium body with medium carbonation. Decent porter, although really not much of a coffee presence.

A little light for a porter and not what I’m used to for this . Not much body and taste kind of stale.

12 oz bottle compliments of Crajun, sampled with friends last weekend and rated by notes taken. Aroma of sweet malt, watered down coffee and yeast. Appearance seems a bit light for the style. Sweet malty taste seemed to lack the coffee punch that I hoped for. I get more of a mocha/ chocolate flavor. Dry finish. Not at all bad, just had higher expectations.
