Very mild Malty smell... and taste of course....slightly hoppy, mostly malt and water, not a lot of depth

jbruner (2356) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Pours an opaque brownish black from the bottle with fluffy tan head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma of nice roasted malts and dark chocolate with a hint of English yeast esters. Taste follows, add a bit of soy earthiness and a dry bitter finish, creamier mouth. Solid for the style, a nice porter.

chinchill (1957) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 15, 2014
undated 12 oz bottle served in a snifter. Clear but very dark brown; thin but durable tan head coats the glass nicely with each tip. Aroma: Plenty of dark roasted malt with hints of spicy hops, red wine, and dark fruit. Taste: well-balanced flavor profile that turns slightly smokey at the finish. Neither bold nor challenging, this beer has a solid dark roasted base. M: very good mix of smooth silky texture with a note of crispness, reflecting light but well-chosen carbonation. Medium body. O: a well-crafted, mainstream porter. Good for sipping and quite sessionable.

BVery (6559) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Bottle. Nice dark pour with a small frothy beige head. Aroma is roasted malt and a bit of cocoa. Medium palate, but the taste is a little odd - not bad, but it’s like the roast flavors are combatting a touch of metal and also a bit of watery blandness. Improving as it warms, though.

jbuskirk (453) - Holdrege, Nebraska, USA - JAN 2, 2014
This English porter has a smooth, moderate mouthfeel and a balanced flavor. There’s some spicy hop character but it’s subdued. Roasted malt and chocolate flavors are also very even. A quality porter from a decidedly bold, experimental brewery.

Chalsk (1065) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Pours a black color with a soapy white head. Aroma of dark fruit and roast with something else that is not blending well, perhaps chocolate, giving it a weird aroma. Taste is equally off. Dry and smoky with too much sweetness on the backend. Not good. Drain pour.

boxofrane (2144) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 24, 2013
Bottle. Pours black with a medium sized brown head. The aroma has milk chocolate, roast, light coffee. The taste has roasted malt, bitter coffee, odd finish.

tnkw01 (1151) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 26, 2013
Bottle. Deep brown color. Small, tan head. Light coffee, roasted grain aroma. Taste is the same.

BeerandBlues2 (9766) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - NOV 26, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours opaque black with a medium, frothy tan head, medium retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is toast, roast, and chocolate malt, dates and prunes with light earthy hops. Flavor is dark malt, lightly bitter, light hops and bitterness, dark fruits and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.
