tfontana (666) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 5, 2016
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Manchester Wine and Liquors. Appearance is dark mahogany with finger-width light brown head with fair retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is roasted malt; mild dark fruit, caramel and chocolate; a little musty. Taste is roasted bitter--bordering on smoke--mild dark fruit, chocolate. Palate is medium bodied with frothy texture, average carbonation and lightly roasted bitter finish. Overall, aroma and taste have strong roasted quality but other features are pretty mild.

Slipstream (2444) - USA - MAY 30, 2016
The pour is flat and black, and the kooky label suggests an out of date weirdness - but the beer is not weird. There was a lot of sweet coffee and pumpernickel flavor, a little cocoa and cola, plus a whiff of woodsmoke. A very tasty porter that I enjoyed on draft as well.

AWISLguy (2487) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 13, 2016
12oz bottle from Total Wine in Jensen Beach. Very dark brown pour with a tan head. Chocolatey malts, some molasses. Also some chocolate liqueur. Not a terrific blend, lowly carbonated, low-ish alcohol presence. Solid example of an old style porter - tastier than most of those. 13.8

Restrained aroma in a coke coloured pour. Interesting taste profile has initial hints of coffee followed by a full malty body and clean finish.
