calm_dreamer (158) - GREECE - FEB 5, 2014
Black body and nice brown head. Αroma of chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, some alcohol. The mouth feels some oak, alcohol and chocolate. Also a note of dark cherry, like black forest. Medium to full body, low carbonation and long-lasting coffee and choco aftertaste.

Idiosynkrasie (4094) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 22, 2014
650ml bottle. Darkest brown colour with small, frothy, rapidly diminishing and completely fading, tan head. Dark malty aroma has hints of chocolate and black cherries, bitter hoppy overtones. Taste is dry hoppy, an unpleasant bitterness of "burnt something" has a medicamentous character, repressed dark malty background with a touch of chocolate and black cherries; somehow thin and light-bodied. Don’t like it.

Brouwerij (942) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark brown with pillowy tan head, settles fairly quickly with thin lace. Aroma is sweet and fruity, mild sweet, toasted malt. Tastes sweet, nutty malt, mild soy sauce, with a mild chocolate/cocoa finish. Not a big fan of the malts used. Better as it warms. Moderate carbonation and medium body.

Headbanger (3386) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2014
22oz bottle (Old Notes)-Pours a dark brown almost black. Aroma of malts and cocoa. Taste of chocolate, malts, and more sweetness. This medium bodied brew is not bad but a bit too sweet for a porter.

seth_lfod (325) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Bottle shared by Nick... Thanks! Wax dipped bomber pours black brown with small mocha head. Aroma of cocoa and roast, not much else. Taste was different than what I was expecting, cherry fruitiness, slight tart, cocoa powder, and a little bit of bitterness. Good!

Tap. The smell is roasty, coffee, burnt malts, and ok. The taste is roast, milk chocolate, cocoa, and has a sweetish finish. The look is brown with red tinges and a thinner tan head.

jrodooo5 (1071) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - DEC 21, 2013
A really nice deep dark pour w/ a big tan head that fades into a large among of lacing. The aroma has huge chocolate notes w/ possibly some subtle cherry. The taste is really light on the palate. It’s got a big chocolate flavor up front w/ some sweetness towards the end instead of the typical bitterness you would expect to find in a porter. Well done!
