Great chocolate & coffee taste with a nice aroma, a terrific porter. Pores with a lacy foam that lasts for a while and then leaves a consistent foam ring on the glass as you drink. Hard to find in Cincinnati, which should tell you something.

Pours a dark brown, thin amount of tan foam, dissipates rapidly. Aroma of roasted malts and vanilla. Taste is roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, and a bit of molasses. Just a tad cloying and tart on the finish, which detracted from it somewhat.

@ Party Source / Bellvue - Clear, very dark ruby amber, rim head, no lace. Taste is toasted caramel malt that adds malty coffee midway through the palate. Coffee turns bitter (black coffee) and moves smoothly through the finish, lingering well as more malt reappears. Coffee (and chocolate) are present, but not cloying as so often happens with porters/stouts. Surprisingly well balanced and satisfying, one of Rivertown’s best. Recommended.

Bottle shared by Travlr. Pours opaque black with a medium, frothy and bubbly beige head, medium retention with light lacing. Aroma is chocolate, light toast and nutty malt with plums and figs, and light earthy hops. Flavor is moderate chocolate, dark malt, light hops and bitterness with a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation.

DialSquare (2775) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 24, 2013
12oz bottle from Andersons in Sylvania. Big roasty aroma with chocolate and caramel. Tastes are cola vibe - vanilla, coffee, little licorice. Easy drinking.

jjuf1853 (1241) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Bottle at Land O Lakes WOB. Pours a very dark brown with a touch of red along the edges. Virtually zero head to speak of with the exception of a tiny island in the middle. Aroma has a good bit of vanilla and roasted malt with a hint of funkiness similar to a mild sour. Flavor is quite nice with the roasted notes really coming through in the finish. The higher alcohol is well hidden.

Aurelius (4257) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 5, 2013
Interesting aroma - complex but a little muted. Roast, dark cocoa, toasted soy, lightly sweet. Squat 12 oz bottle, functional label. Very dark beer with a short-duration tan head. Generally smooth, a mild acidic kick. Vanilla is well-played and not cloying. Roasty, nice cocoa, a little tangy. Medium body, candied chocolate (Sixlets) finish. A nice sippin’ beer on a brisk night. ABC Liquors, Betton.

fluffy (1728) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2013
hands down one of the best porters ive had. a little smoky, some leather or bourbon even though not aged as such, lots of dark grain notes. very nicely done.
