Iphonephan (3354) - McLean, Virginia, USA - OCT 4, 2013
From a can shared with Kermis. Pours a clear cola brown with a bubbly, quickly dissipating head. Aroma of chocolate and a hint of licorice. Licorice comes out more strongly in the taste. Lingering bitter finish.

adnielsen (9285) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 1, 2013
Little fucken can @ home. Pours a dark brown appearance with a big, fluffy dark brown head. Coffee, toasted malty, a bit roasty, chocolate, toffee, herbal, a bit earthy aroma. Tangy, a bit goopy, toffee/burnt sugar, dark chocolate, coffee flavor. Sort of goopy and sweet. Not horrible but a bit over the top for me.

ROGUE (2099) - Newark, Delaware, USA - OCT 1, 2013
On tap at 2SP. Pours a clean dark brown color and red highlights, with a one finger, off white head. Roasted dark chocolate aromas with a touch of the coffee and a light hop hint. Sweet cocoa flavors complemented by a bitter coffee finish. Very well-balanced. Slick and creamy, medium body with mild carbonation.

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - SEP 29, 2013
12 oz. can served in a . Got this in a BIF. A: Pours a dark black color with a light khaki head. It recedes to a thick collar with lots of stick, soapy lace cascading down the glass. S: Faint notes of coffee beans and dark fruit with a little anise and roasted malts. T: Light coffee, oat malts and some roast. Super dry and chalky finish. A little black licorice with some slightly metallic and vegetal notes. M: Medium thin bodied with a medium high carbonation level. Super dry on the finish with some chalk O: Very dry on the mouth feel with not enough chocolate and dark fruit flavors that I associate with a good Baltic Porter. It needs a touch more roast and some body as well. Serving type: can 05-27-2013

Beerenberger (1481) - Fischer, Texas, USA - SEP 24, 2013
Primarily a roasted malt aroma with some pleasinsg cheesy notes. Pours a solid dark brown with a rapidly dissipating tan head and abuntent lacing. The taste is a nice round bitterness. Coffee, chocolate, with roasted malt and some bready notes in the finish. Medium body and carbonation. Overall, a very enjoyable and drinkable strong porter. Oh yeah! Would drink again.

jnkor (316) - Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Aroma is full of malt and coffee, but lacks a good carry and fullness. Appearance is dark brown and thick, but not too thick. Head poured full and a nice copper color. Palate was bitter and full with a hop edge. Has a lasting boozy feel. Very nice to drink, a coffee lovers beer.

changeup45 (1717) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - SEP 5, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2013 A dark brown color pours out of the can thatís a little murky looking. A frothy, thin tan patchy head settles on top. The aroma shows a lot of caramel malt and some buttery-toffee notes. Toasted grains mix in, with a little coffee, but that quickly gets fazed out of the scent. A light fruity plum sneaks in there and at this point I canít find the coffee at all. The body is thinner and not as rich as I was expecting for such a big brew. The flavors are of semi-sweet bakerís chocolate, roasted coffee grounds, caramel, and finally a little ashy, and dry in the finish. Not bad but it also doesnít do much for me. Kind of muddled and unexciting.
