Pours dark brown with some lacing tan head. Aroma is enticing with notes of chocolate and coffee and a bit of hops. The taste is pretty sweet but with a dry hoppy finish. Overall I really enjoyed this beer favorite of the pack.

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

Thick and deep flavor. Very chocolaty and malty. I really like this dark and comforting beer. Absolutely will look to buy it again.

A black beer with a tan head. Roasted malt, toffee flavours. Semi-sweet but also a tad bitter aftertaste. Heavy.

Deep, dark chocolate brown. One finger of light brown head. It looks like a very legitimate porter. Leaves a decent lace. Aroma is a soft, nutty malt: hazelnut, mocha, breakfast blend coffee with just a touch of sweet (but not too sweet) caramel. Iím shocked at how good the aroma is on this. Taste is nutty, but less pronounced than the aroma. As it warms up, the coffee bitterness really explodes. The nuttiness balances the sugar/caramel sweetness very well. Itís almost like a coffee with cream but also a shot of espresso. The feel is chalky and dusty. This is a very solid beer, I should hope that Saranac would keep it in their regular rotation.

Slightly sweet and roasted smell with a nice dark and smooth appearance. good taste but overall a pretty normal and generic porter. Would drink it again but i would choose many other porters over this one.

Great frothy head, long lasting; delicious aroma, maybe cherry notes. Smooth going down.

Pours a coppery black with a medium tan head. Little aroma, mostly malt. Notes of chocolate and roasted malt up front, bit of a sweet caramel aftertaste. One of saranac better dark beers

12 ounce bottle with a best before date of March 31, 2014, one of my friends gave this to me last week. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown with an inch tan head. Head retention is good, and thereís a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like milk and bittersweet chocolate, roasted malt, char, and some coffee. I think the taste is just like the aroma, but the roasty/char flavor is the strongest. Mouthfeel/body is light, it seems thin for a porter. With that being said, it is pretty easy to drink. Overall I liked this brew, itís a good roasty porter that hopefully Iíll get to try fresher sometime.

Pours from the bottle with a rich, opaque, dark-chocolate brown color. The aroma is dominated by milk chocolate, but there are also some oaty grains and a little vanilla. The flavor is the liquid equivalent of burnt toast, though, with a grainy, assertive bitterness that overwhelms the chocolate. Even if they were going for a robust porter, there is too much over-roasted character to be enjoyed.
