Pours black with a lightly tan fine head. Roasty, chocolate flavor. Mouthfeel is moderate. Chocolate and coffee flavors are there. Pretty good Porter.

pitch black with good and deep aroma of chocolate. vibrant light brown foam that is cola like and adds that dimension to the flavor. chocolate with some bitter and roasted to it. it has a sweetness to the finish. some silk to the body.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle courtesy of RABinVA. Pours a standard dark brown with an inch of creamy tan head. Good head retention with some lazy rings of lace. Roasty, chocalate aroma with a nice sweetness. Sweet flavor with touches of cream and vanilla. Light sweetness in the mouth with a medium body. Very enjoyable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear dark brown with a tall. sticky, light tan head.
Very soft malt aroma.
Lightly sweet with some roast malts, but a lot less than what a good porter should have in my opinion. More like a Schwarzbier.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a slight tan head that fades fast. Big toasty malt aroma with a hit of sweetness. Taste is a bit of chocolate, caramel, and coffee with toasted malt back that lingers on the tongue.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours from the 12 oz. bottle a very dark, cola-ish reddish brown with a large rocky beige head. Too dark to tell what kind of bubble action is occurring in the darkness. Aroma is of roasted, smoky malt. 1st sip brings to mind dark unsweetened chocolate and black coffee. Mouthfeel is on the light side. Overall, a tasty, refreshing Porter that I would not mind having again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft in "Germany" within Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, VA. Very dark brown/black in complexion with slightly watery body. Not bad, but I was expecting a more flavorful porter.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Opaque dark mahogany with a rediculously foamy tan head. Medium body with very high carbonation.
Aroma: black roasted malt, sugury crystal malt, astringent harsh grassy character, dark chocolate.
Taste: Malt sweetness, roasted malt, grainy astringency.
Either a minor infection or a serious water chemistry problem. My bet is on the first -itís undrinkable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with a half inch tan head that stayed around for a while. Thereís also a good amount of lacing. The brew smells like roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate, coffee, and some caramel. It tastes like roasted malt, milk and bittersweet chocolate, caramel, cream, and a bit of burnt/charred malt. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís creamy with a moderate amount of carbonation. I think this is a pretty good brew. One of my friends picked up a single bottle of this for me on a recent trip, and if it was available in my area I would certainly buy this beer again.
