An ok porter. There is a nice smokiness to it. I would have liked to see more power in it. For a subtle porter it's nice. I'll have it more like a brown ale.

Another quality brew from Chico. Nice roasted malt, coffee, caramel and chocolate notes. Body is a little on the weak side. Nice gentle coffee bitterness on finish.

Avgerage porter. Good but a little dull. Thin mouthfeel and a semi-watered down flavor profile for a porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A fine porter. Red brown colour with creamy head. Strong typical porter flavours but with sharp clean after taste that many lack. Not overly strong at 5.6 but still a solid beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pleasant aroma of roasted malted barley that is fairly strong. Pours a rich dark red-brown in the glass with a tan head that fades to a lasting film. Some lacing. Feels very smooth in the mouth with soft carbonation. The flavour is fantastic, mostly malts and hops with a light bittersweet finish. Overall, this is a great dark ale.

Lizardking3 (116) - Springfield, Oregon, USA - OCT 29, 2014
Dark pour with tan head. Aroma is roasty and slightly smokey. Medium mouth feel with creaminess at the top. Flavors are roasted malts, chocolate and a slightly acidic finish. Very solid

SarkyNorthener (2249) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2014
Bottle. Very dark brown beer with halo head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee and roasted malts. Taste is roast malts, coffee and some chocolate. Lightly carbonated. Good stuff.

craighill (18) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - OCT 29, 2014
Bottle from Würzburger Fass in Würzburg. Pours deepest red and chesnut with dense head. Aroma is dominated by dark malt character, woody, whiskey-like, almost smokey. Taste starts fairly sweet but dries out to leave coffee, roasted malt power. Hop bittering takes a secondary role. Better balance than I was expecting.

Great porter! This is one on my go to porters! Nicely balanced with a little hop kick. Nice chocolate aroma and taste with a big roasted malt component. A very easy drinking porter. Medium to full bodied.

Not a bad porter. Toasted black malt aroma slightly roasty chocolate taste with slightly dry fruity finish.
