Bulk_Carrier (3630) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - FEB 1, 2013
It pours a dark brown close to black and leaves a decent half inch white foamy head that immediately dies into the body. The smell is roasted malt, hops and coffee. The taste is bitter as the coffee and hops are taking precedence. The taste is bittersweet between the hops, coffee to the malts, comes through pretty nice. The palate is about a medium with nothing harsh on the tongue. It leaves a bitter and dry aftertaste and finish. Overall, this is a good beer for its style and its good for me, I’d come back to it.

12 oz bottle. Roasted flavor. Taste of roasted coffee and chocolate flavors from the malt balanced with a slight hop bitterness. A little creamy.

From the "Saranac Twelve Beers Of Christmas" 2015 variety 12 pack that my galpal Nancy gifted me with... this is a decent, sessionable porter, with a nice coffee/mocha bitterness. Could be a bit longer lasting on the palate, though.

radio_nowhere (1384) - Maryland, USA - DEC 26, 2015
Bottle from ’Beers of Winter" pack into pint glass; deep, near opaque, dark ruby brown color with creamy beige head. Aroma notes of roast malt sweetness, dark roast coffee, bakers chocolate and tad caramel. Taste adds more espresso coffee notes, dark chocolate, ash and earthy bitterness. Light-medium body, moderate carbonation, tad chalky with coffee roast finish. Overall a solid textbook porter, only real knock is the palate.

JDBaker11058 (1896) - Maryland, USA - NOV 15, 2015
appearance: dark brown, short creamy light tan head. aroma: suitably roasty, with dark chocolate and coffee, maybe a bit of vanilla. taste: coffee first, then a bit of dark chocolate and finally a dose of pine. finish: dry and roasty, smooth and with a bit of those piney hops and dark chocolate lingering. notes: A perfectly fine porter for an unseasonably warm November day. Good palate, balanced flavors.

Dogbrick (11323) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2015
Dark brown color with a medium frothy beige head that diminishes quickly to a film. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of roast malt, chocolate and slight hops. Light body with flavors of chocolate malt, mild coffee and a touch of hops. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

EvanFriend (475) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2015
Pretty generic porter, strongish coffee notes are dominant, some floral hop notes as well.

Beerathon (1683) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 12, 2015
Surprising hop presence in this, almost plays off like a black IPA. Nice roasted malt flavors of coffee and bitter chocolate. Tastes better than it smells. Cola-esque in appearance, with thin bubbly head.

This is a wonderful dark chocolate porter with a tan head that is smooth with an aftertaste.

No aroma. Black, medium tan head. Dry, cardboard and charcoal, weak. Finishes with walnut. Light body, moderate carbonation. Underwhelming.

Travlr (21169) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 14, 2015
Bottle. Deep opaque brown color, coaxed beige head with solid lacing. Huge chocolate aroma. Taste is coffee grounds, espresso. Thin to medium body. Very nice.
