12oz bottle from Crossroads. Pours a dark brown almost black color with a small foamy tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate, roasted malts, hints of caramel, and some earthiness. Taste mimics the nose. Milk chocolate and roasted malt up front, folowed by some char, earth, and a sweet caramel finish. Solid

Pours a pitch black one finger tan head which fades to nice lacing. Aroma is of roasted malts, bakers chocolate, espresso,caramel, and some light burnt wood. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi bitter, medium finish. Overall, a pretty tasty and drinkable porter.

Bought a six pack: roasty malts in dark, dark pour. The beer is appropriately thin, but full of malt roast and a faint hint of chocolate. Not extraordinarily complex.

Pours dark mahogany (reddish tint in the light), with an off white head. Aroma is slightly sweet with roasted malt. This is a medium bodied beer with a nice dark chocolate taste and a heavy coffee aftertaste. This was a surprising beer...very we’ll done.

Reviewed from notes.
American Porter deserves to be poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a dark brown close to black color with a nice settling one finger white foamy head that left a light somewhat clingy lacing after the head dissipated within about a minute.
The smell had a hearty dark roasted sweet maltiness that let in a light earthy bitterness. Light chocolate ends up coming in near the end.
The taste was semi-sweet with the dark roasty sweet maltiness fulfilling my taste buds.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a slight sessionability to it. The carbonation seemed to be good for the style as it was just sharp enough but also still slightly smooth enough.
Overall, I say this was a good American Porter to have again.
