Pours brown. Nose is toasted malt, burnt roast, citrus hops, some pine notes, mild wood notes. Flavor is much the same as the nose. Very easy drinking porter. One of my favorites at TBBC.

On tap at TBBC. Dark brown pour, tan head. Roasty, malty nose and flavor sith a soft mouthfeel. Refreshing. A solid but unexceptional porter.

Deep brown coloured body with a thinnish tan head. Aroma of chocolate and nuts. Medium-bodied; Nice & fresh tasting with a light flavour of nuts, roasted malt and some coffee & chocolate. Overall, a decent beer - nothing special nor horrible. I sampled this beer on draught at Tampa Bay Brewing Company’s Brewpub in Tampa (Ybor City), Florida on 10 November 2007.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 17, 2009
UPDATED: APR 18, 2010 Sample at brewpub. Pours a deep dark brown almost black with a nice head. Aroma is nutty, light roast burnt toast- nutty and chocolate with light phenols. Good flavor of dark chocolate, nuts, almond, big sweet toasted malts, light caramel, modest fruity esters and a slight phenolic thing going on as it warms. Pretty good.

The aroma is right to style with toasted malt, coffee, and a hint of chocolate. The appearance is dark brown with an average head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is right for the style. Overall a nice porter.

Oakes (13426) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 20, 2009
Dark brown. The aroma is light coffee, accented by chocolate malt. Coffeeish, chocolatey palate with an interesting orangey note towards the dry, breadcrusty finish.

Sammy (9447) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 19, 2009
Enjoyed on-tap at the brewpub. Jet black with whitish topping, lots of lace. Above average carbonation. Very well roasted, so how you like the roastiness is how you like the porter.

nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 17, 2009
On tap at the brewpub in Tampa Bay. Poured a dark brown color with a one finger tan head. The aroma was chocolate and roasted malt. The flavor was very roasty. The palate was average, with a body that was a bit thin, but the mouthfeel was still very smooth. this was an enjoyable brew.
