12 ounce bottle pours a dark darker black color with a nice foamy tan head that dissipates slowly. Aromas of coffee and toffee. Coffee and dark chocolate flavoring high level of carbonation. Medium bodied. A bit of a harsh aftertaste.

hangunder (271) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 15, 2014
Smells delicious, notes of dark roasted malt, metallic, soy, tarry notes. Completely black with a rapidly fading dark brown head. Delicious beer, upfront more metallic and roasty notes in the taste, finishes with leafy hops and a building bitterness. Not too sweet. Medium bodied and average carbonation. Tons of flavor for the ABV and those that I personally like -- a great Porter.

dlihcsnatas (339) - Texas, USA - NOV 14, 2014
Black brew with a small head that didn’t hold for long. Smells of roasted malts with some hints at coffee. Taste is roasted and chocolate with the hints at coffee but also a spicy hop bite to it. Not really a fan of porters with so much hops. The hops make me think that someone poured an IPA in with my good porter just to mess with me.

Spab (2559) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 2, 2014
355 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a very dark brown with reddish hints and moderate-sized light tan head. Aroma is roasty with cocoa, coffee and some sweetish toffee. Flavour has a pleasant roastiness with good helping of cocoa and some coffee, some earthy hops and hints of sweet toffee. Slick mouthfeel. Quite good.

Growler fill from Kreston's in Middletown. Pours dark brown with a light brown foam. Nose is slightly sweet with hints of chocolate. Hoppy dryness up front. Finishes crisp with a roasted malt flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GIJOE (688) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - OCT 29, 2014
Pours black with a creamy, tan head that stays long. Nose is roasted malt and grain. Bit of a barnyard hint there. Taste is on the bitter side. Full body. Lively carbonation. Decent porter, although not a favorite for the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
