Pours black with almond dissipating but lingering head. Aroma of coffee after roasted coffee beans and cocoa/coconut. Coffee into caramel, end roasted nut. Actually kinda hoppy in there- grassy and fruity at end. Really drinkable.

Nice roast flavor to this porter. Great value as well, copped a 22 for 4 dollars at the local store. Overall itís a pretty good porter, and not that this matters at all but I love the artwork on the bottle as well.

Pours nice and rich into the glass. Nice rich consistency with a medium head thats more on the light colored side of the spectrum (hazelnut brown color). Nice chocolatey aroma with hints of the alcohol. The taste has a roastiness on the forefront but unfortunately accompanied with the alcohol taste right off the bat (more than id like/expect at least). Very sweet milk chocolatey taste would go nicely with a vanilla ice cream. The roast flavors almost remind me of a smore thats slightly charred. Overall Iíve had better porters but this oneís not too shabby but probably not my weapon of choice

Dogbrick (9446) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Sample at GABF 10/13/2012, thanks to Bluemeow76 for assistance with note-taking. Pours black with a medium tan head and top ring of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Medium body with a roasty character of coffee and malt, along with some dark chocolate and hops. The finish is malty with a mildly bitter coffee aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

PilsnerPeter (3029) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Notes from my backlog: Pours a deep brown with a tan ring that laces slightly Mild aroma- wafer notes with very light roast. Clean and boring. Fizzy light body, too carbonated. Peppery charred flavor with bitter malt husks and inky. Some chocolaty roast on the back but itís inky with a slightly astringent bitter husk finish. Needs refining.
