fromred2green (187) - , Ohio, USA - APR 5, 2009
Bottle. Pours dark brown with an off-white head. Aroma is rather nutty, and malty. Flavor is, for a porter, rather bland. Eh, not bad, but probably won’t buy again.

kuphish (381) - Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA - FEB 23, 2009
Bottle. Average sized, off-white head that diminished fairly quickly. Good lacing and a clear, deep amber brown body. An initial heavy, roasty maltyness accompanied by alcohol. A very slight bit of herbal hop aroma. The flavor consists of toasted and roasty malts with a faint touch of chocolate. A lingering smoky burnt flavor that is not unpleasant. The flavor thankfully does not exhibit any of the alcohol that was present in the aroma. A nice hop bitterness that keeps the beer from tasting too sweet. The mouthfeel is creamy, but light. Average carbonation. In sum, the beer has a nice balance of hop bitterness to malt sweetness and a good, but not very interesting flavor profile. Overall a nice, easy drinking porter, but nothing special.

badwhale (376) - Bitterville, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 12, 2009
Bottle to cup. Dark brown (almost black) very little head / lacing. Malty aroma & scent of fruits. Good porter flavor, but a little watery. Decent beer

ilherps (248) - Carbondale, Illinois, USA - JAN 27, 2009
Dark brown, chocolate colored. Flavor is sweet, with toffee and chocolate, and also a bit nutty and toasty. There is also a hint of bitterness on the end. Very drinkable and enjoyable.

bluemooner (640) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - JAN 26, 2009
Pours a dark brown color with a thin tan head. Very thin body with some carbonation. Flavor contains hints of chocolate, roasted coffee, and some sweetness. An all right beer nothing special as far as porters go.

ryanknock (150) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 19, 2009
A really roasty and drinkable porter, with a great hoppy bitterness in the finish. Coffee, toffee, toast, almonds and slight spicy esters blend well behind the roasty and slightly sweet chocolate profile.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
decaturstevo (5215) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - DEC 29, 2008
Chocolate from the bottle not much from the glass on the nose. Light brown by porter standards. Light chocolate no coffee to speak of a bit of a sour on the finish. A little thin and watery. A decent bitter but lacking in body, flavor, and complexity. A very average porter.
