Top notch. The nose is coffee, chocolate, and an intense maltiness. The beer is deep brown bordering on black with a small tan head. The taste is the same as the aroma chocolate with coffee. Delicious. The body is thick with a smooth silkiness. Great.

Deep malts and smooth finish mark this Porter as a true epic of brews. Good gravity but not overpowering, great with curried dishes, as those deep malts melt the spices from your palette. This is the most highly celebrated, and decorated brew in Sweetwaters arsenal for a reason. Don’t pass this one up!

A very robust and roasty porter. Huge coffee accents and rich flavor that follows through. This is a hefty beer and it’s tough to drink more than one or two at a time. This is a porter you can drink with a meal.

Pours black, medium head that fades quickly. Smells like malt and roasted peanuts. The hops are definately in the background here. Goes down smooth and refreshing.

Bonus bottle from goldtwins.
Pours Coca Cola colored with a creamy tan head. Burnt Chocolate aroma. Flavors of chocolate and coffee and even some dark fruits. Awesome mouthfeel just this side of thick (for a porter). Smooth hop bitterness lies just below the surface. This is an outstanding porter!

I was pleasantly surprised by this porter, brewed locally. Poured to a dark brown/black with thick tan head. Immediate aroma of choclate, toffee and caramel malt. Chocolate came thru most in the flavor. Body was medium with no wateriness at all By mid-glass, could also taste a hint of alcohol. A smooth drinking beer with a good, long finish.

12 oz bottle.It pours a dark brown or black with a small quickly fading light tan head. It has a roasted aroma and smells of coffee & chocolate. It has a wonderful complex flavor and tastes of chocolate, smoke, coffee, leather and tobacco. I love this beer and will probably buy it if I see it available again.
