A robust porter, dark brown in color and full-bodied with a malty sweet taste. Deep roasted, yet silky-smooth! Two types of roasted malts, including deep-roasted chocolate malt are used to give this porter a rich, chocolately taste.

It produced a beautiful, thick, creamy head with a very light fragrance - almost imperceptible. The first sip yielded a great, silky thick mouth feel almost stout like, yet definitely a quality porter. It seemed slightly bitter with a coffee bark but began to sweeten. A subsequent pour was from a lightly cooled bottle (say... 48 degrees?) into a room temperature glass. Still a great head, but decidedly more malty and hints of bittersweet chocolate mixed well with the coffee tones.

Initial aroma of milk chocolate(!) Pours dark with a thick tan head that fades fast. But the initial taste has a taste of bitter chocolate with layers of flavor. Smooth and crisp. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Jow (2005) - New York, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Tap at 3 monkeys. Pours deep amber tinged brown. Nose is malt and cola. Tastes heavily malted, of flag coke, caramel, coffee, and tinge of earthy bitters. Very creamy texture.

nike (950) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2014
p2oz bottle, Pours dark black with a light tan head, decent lacing. Aroma is slightly sweet cocoa malt. Taste is roasted chocolate malts and toffee, and some chocolate malts coming through. For a stout it is on the thin and watery side, but still, this brew is a good tasting beer that is worth the try.

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2014
12 oz. bottle from the Party Source. All this time in Ohio and I’m just now getting around to this one. Worst label ever? Pours a deep brownish amber with a small beige head. Aroma of leaves, chocolate, toast, nuts, brown sugar, and cardboard. Flavor of chocolate, nuts, toast, tobacco, earth, and grass. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry mouthfeel. Easy to drink but not memorable.

Pours dark brown to black with a light tan head that fades to a rim. Aroma is a bit sweet cocoa malt. Taste is roasted chocolate malts and toffee and quite sour. A bit thin and watery, but this is a pretty tasty and classic tasting malt.

Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks solid; cola with foamy light beige lacing. Smells of dark malt, dark chocolate, and roast. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Not bad.

Fresh bottle. Pours black, half-inch of tan head. Aroma is coffee and chocolate. Nice chocolate taste with some roasted malt background. Deep, rich and smooth. Not sessionable, but could easily drink a few of these.
