ADesenberg (592) - Ohio, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Draft: pours a very dark brown with a tan head. Just what you’d expect from a great porter, lots of chocolate and roasty coffee. Nice and earthy, but very drinkable still. This is a great porter, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

LilBeerDoctor (3453) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 27, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Pours a dark brown with a thin light tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate. Flavor of sweet malt, light roast, light peat. Very light porter, easy drinking, not as roasted as I expected, probably closer to a brown ale even. 6/4/7/4/14 (3.5/5)

Good roast. Strong presence of coffee balanced nicely with bitter chocolate. Very light. A good session it’s just missing something

garrison (773) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - OCT 13, 2013
On draft from the taproom at the Rhinegeist Brewery (basically because I tried I tried to sample it at the former Elder Cafe at Findlay Market but they stopped serving at 6 p.m. and I decided to walk a few blocks up Elm Street to get Panther Porter) - This is a dark brown brew with a tall, lasting tan head of foam and an interesting grainy-cocoa aroma. Tastewise , it was very good, but I thought it lacking a very small bit on the balance... still a good beer, though.
