Ed5388 (2491) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - MAY 16, 2015
12oz bottle from Lacey Spirits. Pours a thin brownish/black color with a thick frothy dark tan head. Aroma of chocolate malt, caramel, old coffee, and some vanilla. Taste is earthy, with notes of bitter black coffee, chocolate, and caramel. Had low hopes after the aroma, but taste is pretty solid.

corkyrory66 (845) - BELGIUM - MAY 10, 2015
Un porter de 5,3 % abv, soit un peu plus que mentionné sur le site. Couleur noir intense, opaque. Mousse caramel, bien crémeuse, stable à 2 mm. Arômes de chocolat très fin, café, chicorée, malt cara, pointe de cannelle. 1ère bouche veloutée sur un café assez fort, mais plein de nuances, malt grillé. Arrière-bouche pleine, assez complexe déjà. 2ème avec café, chocolat, chicorée, malt cara, noisettes grillées. Arrière-bouche dense, complexe, longue. 3ème très fondue, équilibre magnifique malts grillés/houblons. Arrière-bouche de pain complet, avec un petit expresso pas trop serré. Longueur avec le chocolat de plus en plus présent, malts divers, houblons. Jambes groupées, serrées, fines. Levure soyeuse, dense, épicée. Belle ligne pour le genre. Alcool correct, malgré son faible niveau, efficace sur le goût. Finale un peu moins consistante que le reste. CONCLUSION : un très beau porter qui pourrait en secouer plus d’un, même s’il n’est pas un « rogue » ...

airrick2003 (657) - Louisiana, USA - APR 29, 2015
Appearance: pours with a smaller tan head, the beer is a very black color and it's really hard to even see any color on the edges Aroma: strong coffee, chocolate, Taste: coffee, moderate sweetness, lighter bitterness, Palate: average carbonation, medium mouthfeel, bitter coffee aftertaste Overall: a solid porter, leans more to the sweet side than the bitter side but still not overly sweet, I like it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Erzengel (5079) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - APR 26, 2015
The beer starts fresh and malty-roasted. Fresh and smooth. Hints of sourness, dry and malty, nice roast. The bitterness is not too intense, but nice. Dark dry roast in the aftertaste. Nice but not too deep.

gegwilson (1877) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2015
Bottle from the National Winter Ales Festival, Derby. Pours deep brown, almost black with a cream head. The aroma is mocha, as you would expect. The taste is coffe and chocolate also with some light spice. The body is a bit on the thin side. Otherwise very good and goes down very easy.
