Heady brown pour. Aroma of coffee, malt, hops, citrus, oak. Flavor notes of coffee, pale malt, lemon and tree bark. It has the dark nature of a good porter but the taste is a little slimy and flavors don’t blend well.

EithCubes (5202) - New Jersey, USA - APR 4, 2015
Bottle, mine 6.5% abv. Nose is light roast, some malt backbone, and deep, rich, luxurious chocolate mixing with light cocoa powder. Pours deep ruby which settles for mere deep brown in the glass, supports a dense and rocky tan head. Sweet, extremely rich taste (like good cake, icing included), red berry mixing with faint raisin, very strong milk chocolate, deeper truffle-like chocolate, some mild orange peel. Some actual, palpable, discernible malt character here, has depth and character. Medium body, malty feel, clean with no alcohol showing, delicious dessert all by itself.

Bottle. Dark brown. Chocolate malt aroma. The taste follows with sweet chocolate. Thin overall, but kind of a creamy feel too. Pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle purchased at brewery. Poured into tulip. Chocolate and cereal malts in the aroma. Appearance is black with small creamy head which fades quickly leaving a little lacing. Taste is medium to heavy sweet. Next to no bitterness. Palate is medium body. Oily creamy texture. with soft to flat carbonation. Fairly smooth finish. Over all pretty good beer. Decent for a chocolate porter. Personally I like them a little less sweet. Not the best I have tried but far from the worst. Price a brewery is a bit steep, so value wise I give it 2 out of 5!
