Sampled at City Beer on tap. Pours deep brown with a nice toffee and chocolate aroma. Palate is very nice. The malts are really good and drink smooth. Hopping is more than I expected and flow very well. Nice brew.

italarican (1484) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - JAN 8, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Pours deep dark chocolate brown. Classic (but well done- clean) porter aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, and a bit of caramel. Perfectly emanating roasted coffee and dark chocolate flavor. Minimal hop presence that provides enough backbone. Just a great porter.

Draught @ the brewpub, Santa Rosa. Rated on 20.10.2012.
Pours a black colour with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of rich roasted malts, tobacco and ash. Flavour is really rich with roasted malts, tobacco, grassy bitterness, dark chocolate and mellow caramel notes. Rich mouthfeel with a malty, slightly dry finish. Great.

On tap at the brewery. Pours black with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, some coffee and dark chocolate, light smoky notes, hints of dark fruits, and light dough. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Average to smoother texture. A solid porter.

Homer321 (2128) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Draft at brewery. Nose is chocolate with a light roast. Taste is amazingly smooth chocolate. Just a perfect balance of cocoa and chocolate with a touch of dark bitter chocolate to dry it out. Short of roast. Great damn porter. A touch thin but truly great.
