Pretty dark, until the sediment comes out. The 1 full ounce of sludge turned it to a hazy, opaque black, with a dark brown head. Chocolate, coffee, caramel, vanilla, hops, and horse shit(?). An odd aroma for sure. The flavors are strong, with a nice hop bitterness in the finish. I didn’t think it was too hard to find the coffee. This was a pretty damn good porter, even if I found an odd element in the aroma.

I could taste a roasted chocolatiness to this, but any mocha twinges were unnoticeable. Great tasting porter but nothing jumped out at me. Deep blackish brown. Head didn’t stick around long. A tad bitter aftertaste. Not bad. I will try this again.

This beer poured into the glass almost black. Only way to see color is to hold it up to the light bulb at approx. 4" away. Then you see the dark ruby color. Which surprised for this style, most porters I have had where not this dark. The head was a medium beige, tan color with a thick rich head and the lace was apparent, spotty but lasting. The aroma was bitter/sweet roasted malt, earthy, coffee, tobaco hints and some fruit hops and cocoa. The taste was bitter /sweet cocoa coffee. There were hints of roasted malts and bitter hops all through the flavors mixing. It finished on the bitter side with some slight after taste. I rather enjoyed the experience. A nice beer for the style.

Very nice color and body for a porter. The coofee flavor mixes nicely with the choclate roast of the malt. Very enjoyable.

I certainly with the style designation on here: Porter. Not a sweet one, not overly roasty, just pretty darn good. Has that pacman yeast ’flavor’ I guess, it seems to complicate matters. But a really good balance here between coffee and chocolate and some other sweetness, very faintly, like fig!

A very flavorful porter. Dark, dark brown color, small light tan head. Not much in the way of aroma, a little chocolate and malt. Bittersweet flavor of chocolate and coffee, a little bite from the black malt. Medium bodied, as a porter should be. If you like porters and stouts, definitely worth a try.

Not a bad beer, but probably not one I’d buy again. Color is a rich brown with a creamy head. Aroma of hops and espresso. Body is somewhat thin and flavor on the bitter side.
