GT2 (8160) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Tap at Khyber Pass in Philly. Pours deep black with a lighter beige head. Nice retention. Nose is spicy chili salsa and green peppers. Has that vegetal DMS character from the coffee adjunct unfortunately. A big pet peeve of mine. Taste is light bodied, chalky, powdery, chili salsa, green peppers. Salsa bowl. Not good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A clear brown Porter with a thin mocha head. In aroma, sweet nutty chocolate malt with light grassy floral hops. In mouth, a nice roasted chocolate malt with grassy piney and floral hops, warming alcohol alcohol, very nice.

bellco33 (241) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - FEB 20, 2014
On tap in sampler: Not getting all the love for this one. Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma of chocolate and coffee. Taste is predominantly coffee, but with some chocolate, and lots of water. Mostly water actually. Thin body, not much going on here. Itís not bad, but itís very lacking.

italianjohn (2278) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Black pour with a thin khaki head and sticky lacing .... nice aroma of dark bakers chocolate, coffee and roasted malts .... coffee is potent in this one .... taste is of bitter dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malts very bitter and coffee like brew .... has a very bitter dark roasted dry finish with a long lingering bitterness ... the dark chocolate and coffee flavors are very solid in this brew ... has a thinner mouthfeel

NikkTwist (1512) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Draft at Milk Boy. Black pour. Strong foamy off-white head. Tastes like watered espresso. Hints of chocolate and dark fruit but coffee dominates. Slim aroma. Medium-bodied Porter. Good stuff but lacking gravity.

On tap in an English pint. Pours very dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of roasted and chocolate malts, coffee, some dough, and light bitterness. Flavor the same. Smooth to average texture. A good beer.

Sample at barcade courtesy of Maryanna, pours blackish color with light white head, not much lacing. Aroma and flavor were roasted grain, espresso, wood, and cocoa. Medium bodied. Nothing amazing here but a nice porter made in America.
