Had this in a 10oz tulip glass at revolution. Black with frothy off white head. Light creamy aroma. Weird camel sweet and creamy taste. Haven't tasted a porter like this. Thick. I think I like it?

On tap, pours pitch black with a thick brown head, the aroma was full of dark chocolate and coffee, really rich, the flavor starts off with chocolate and roast and has a nice kick of coffee in the finish as well, balanced, the mouthfeel was full, impressed.

Had this at their place in Chicago. All the beer unless noted otherwise were good to very good. Unfortunately this was rated with another program and I can't import my comments.

On tap at Kedzie taproom. Pours near black with tan head. Aromas of roasted malts, chocolate, bit of coffee, piney hops, and a touch of fruit. Flavors of deeply roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, and good dose of bitter hops. Well built body. Really nice.

Snifter at the pub. Pours a rich black with a tan ring of a head. Chocolate, roast, charred aroma with a light creaminess. The flavors are balanced really well. Lots of chocolate roast that’s balanced with creamy chocolate and bitterness. Not overly sweet or boozy. Good stuff.

Beerman6686 (4704) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2012
This poured a very dark brown color with a tan head. Aroma was dark roasted malts, brown sugar, lots of alcohol and some dark chocolate. Flavor was very strong and in the fce, lots of residual sugar, though somewhat burnt, and a good amount of alcohol. Solid big beer.

Dogbrick (8680) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Sample at the brewpub. Brownish-black color with a medium foamy tan head that diminishes steadily to a film. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and hops. Full-bodied with a roasty character and flavors of charred malt, coffee and dark chocolate. Touches of hops in the background. The finish is moderately bitter with a coffee aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Draft at Brewery. The pours is dark with nice head. The aroma is mostly malt. The taste is high class for a porter. One of the better porters I have had. Some nice dark fruit notes. The finish is nice as well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
