Pours an opaque brown-black with very little head. Nose is of coffee and dark malt. Fairly creamy on the palate, the taste is of dark roasted malt, coffee and a vague hint of hops on the finish. Only an average Porter, this one pairs well with cheese spread on Ritz crackers.

pours dark brown with a small tan head. The nose is faint malt and booze, like bourbon or whiskey. Creamy mouth feel. Hint of coffee and spice. A little bitterness fades in. Not bad, but not memorable.

Thin, weak, altogether underwhelming. This is not a good example of what a porter should be.

Bottle. Deep chestnut pour with a small white head. Nice roasty and sweet toffee aroma. Similar taste. Medium bodied. This is pretty solid, much better than I was anticipating based on the average ratings.

ccex (925) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 5, 2013
12 oz bottle pours a dark brown with small khaki head and some lacing. Aroma is chock full of roasted malts and bready malts, with some coffee bitterness and nuts. Taste is slightly bitter. Body is at best medium (I always hope for a thicker porter) with average carbonation. At first I thought that the breadiness in this reminded me of a doppelbock, but on further reflection, it’s just another porter with a slightly different twist.

tmoreau (2442) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - OCT 18, 2012
On tap at the brewpub bar, and dispensed to a pint glass with a nearly opaque, amber highlighted, dark brown color, with a substantial, light tan, cakey head, and curtainy cling to the lacing. The aroma was mild roastiness, with cocoa and coffee notes of like intensity, a bit of nuttiness, and just a touch of toffee sweetness. The flavor was similar, adding moderate hop bitterness, a medium body, and soft carbonation. The finale was fairly dry. A decently crafted Porter.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Deep mahogany with a thin tan head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt and caramel. Taste of light chocolate, caramel, roasted malt, coffee and nut bark. Thin and semi-acidic.

Bottle thanks to JoePeesie! Thin dark pour with lots of khaki lacing. Aroma is mild of distant coffee and sweet cream. Flavor has notes of coffee and is nutty, but what’s distinctive is a pleasant sweetness: either coconut or marshmallow cream. Much lighter body and flavors than most porters; really it’s closer to a brown ale. I really like the sweetness here. It’s subtle but pretty nice.

Roast and mild chocolate aroma. Black, frothy, creamy, off white head. Mild lacing. Roast, mild chocolate, mild roast bitter flavor. Burnt, mild bitterness, with decent balance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
