12-oz. can. Pours deep, dark brown with just a hint of a tan head. Subdued nose of chocolate and a slight vegetal tone almost reminiscent of rhubarb. Light cocoa taste followed by cinnamon and a tiny touch of marshmallow. Lighter body than many porters with a somewhat chalky finish. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz can, Andersons. Dark cola pour; one-finger almost-fizzy brown head dissipates into nothing; nearly no lacing; lightly glass-coating upon swirling. Cola, black malt, chocolate, brown sugar, light roast. Nothing is terribly intense about this but it is full-flavored and full-bodied, and reasonably complex.

On tap at Florentine in Chicago. Deep brown pour with creamy tan head with moderate lacing. Fairly typical porter - roasted malts, chocolate and notes of ripe fruit. Nice mouthfeel and smooth drinking. Enjoyable beer.

Had it out of a can, poured a dark coffee color with a thick expresso colored head and even lacing. The taste is a delicious mild chocolate coffee that goes down very smooth.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour is black with a bubbly two-finger wide white head. Aroma is of toasted and roasty malts, some light fleeting sweetness, and a touch of coffee. Flavor is well balanced but leans towards the bitter coffee notes. Vanilla and chocolate are also present but subdued. A bit harsh, alcohol shines through.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12oz can poured into a shaker. Pours almost black with a finger of dark brown head. Aroma of coffee and dark chocolate. Taste is light bitter coffee and chocolate with a hint of burnt caramel. Full bodied with a creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, great. This could be a great daily drinker.
