12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy very dark reddish brown color with a 2 finger dense khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, caramel, toast, biscuit, light coffee, herbal, floral, light pine, and roasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and light-moderate hop notes; with good strength. Taste of dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, toast, biscuit, caramel, light coffee, herbal, floral, light pine, and roasted earthiness. Fair amount of roast/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, toast, biscuit, caramel, light coffee, herbal, floral, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt flavors with light-moderate hop presence; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy, smooth, and slightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice porter. All around good balance, complexity, and robustness of dark/roasted malt and light-moderate hop flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Dark pour with a very deep dark ruby cast. Nice head and a lacing that lasts well enough. Nose is sweet dark malt - caramel with a touch of chocolate. Almost medium bodied with normal carbonation. The flavor profile is nice and a bit complex. It begins with the dark malts delivering a caramel and coffee taste against a slightly sweet background, progresses to a slight roast bitterness and finishes cleanly with a carbonation burst with a hint of smoke. Quite nice!

12 oz bottle. Plenty of coffee and coal flavors in a rich black hole of a brew. There is so much to like here you just have to call it perfect.

Delicious dark porter. Caramel, chocolate notes with a small hint of smokiness. Thought with a name like Old Leghumper, I wasn’t expecting much from this beer.

Sikash (230) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Nic every dark maybe red/amberish color with a fizzy offwhite head. Aroma seems mostly of roasted/toasted malts a little bready/yeasty. Flavor is a decent licorice sweetness with some toasty notes mixed in. It’s fairly sweet but I think the fizzyness of the carbonation takes away from the overall flavor. This is a good bear but not great.

solidfunk (3004) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Nice, developed porter here. Good roast malt with some smoke and a little robust pungence. Dark chocolate as well. Pours black with decent initial head and lacing. Good thick consistency. Average carbonation. Finishes with light bitterness. Bottle.

jrob21 (2351) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 8, 2013
12 oz bottle. Big body and flavor here makes me wonder why all porters can’t have at least a little more character. Nice roasty malt flavors with a touch of chocolate. Some milk chocolate creaminess and a light bittersweet finish.

Long Island, NY - 12 oz. beer pours a dark cola color with a thin layer of brownish head. Aroma was malt heavyz I don't dwell much in porters but taste was of slight hops with a hint of sweetness. Heavy malt backbone with a smooth mouth feel. Not a bad brew ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
