This beer if you can find it ship it to the less unfortunate. It goes down nice with a slab of meat on the grill. Definitely will have to try it with the veggie platter as well.

Zlotta (76) - Bonn, GERMANY - NOV 26, 2014
0,355 l bottle (BB 27/11/2014). Pitch black with a thick, creamy, stable, light brown head. Heavy aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee and cocoa powder. Sweetish-bitter, coffee-like taste with dark chocolate and hints of prunes and raisins. Full body, creamy mouthfeel, long, slightly bitter finish. Great porter which leaves nothing to be desired.

sudomorph (695) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 23, 2014
355ml bottle. Pours a near black/caramel with a two finger, tan head. Aroma has big, slightly sweet, notes of roasted malts, chocolate, and some mild hops. Taste is rich but balanced. Dark chocolate and cocoa with some hop bitterness, and a smooth finish. Medium body and carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a slightly creamy texture and a mildly dry finish. Overall very tasty. Big dark chocolate and cocoa powder. Not as sweet as say the Founders Porter but still tasty.

Bricks (628) - Delaware, USA - NOV 21, 2014
Smoky malt metallic aroma. Dark hair, tan somewhat fizzy head. Taste of smoked malt and coffee with chocolate. Somewhat bitter.

deepeary (157) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 21, 2014
Bottle from LCBO, BB 03-11-2015. Roasted dark chocolate. Really smooth and balanced. Mild bitter finish. Let it warm up. Robust yet sessionable..

Bendrixian (1162) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
single bottle from LCBO. Black with average head. Toffee/ espresso aroma dominated aroma. On the palate it is quite burnt toast like and fairly aggressive. Very tasty.

spacecube (946) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2014
355ml bottle, pours black wih an off white head, dark, roasty malts, hazelnut and some smokiness over citrussy hop with a long bitter and dry chalky finish. Hoppy for a porter but balanced nicely.

firefly765 (126) - - NOV 17, 2014
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 (260) - 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 (328) - 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.

Dark pour mocha head. Aromas of coffee and dark chocolate. Good flavor and long finish.
