Bulk_Carrier (3419) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - FEB 7, 2013
It pours a deep dark black that leaves the same color body. A massive two inch off-white/tan head apears and takes a good three minutes before settling. There is a lot of lacing seen and the body is too dark for any carbonation to be seen rising. The aroma has a chocolate sort of nuttiness up front. The taste has the same smell backed up with some toffee and coffee. It is very nicely done. The palate is about a medium with some light tickly harshness on my tongue. Overall, this is good for its style and great to me.

AWISLguy (2284) - 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.
