Bottle@nkbar. Black. Malty, slight stuffy roasty, dry nose. Med bodied, roasty bordering on ashy, malty, sort of plain, light leathery. Finishes on a bit coffeyish dry dark choco note. Ok porter. Clean, flavourful. Nothing amazing there though.

Pretty solid porter! Dark cola like pour w/ a tan head & messy lacing. The aroma has nice dark chocolate & roasted notes. The taste is on point w/ roasted chocolate standing out. It’s a tad thin but overall an enjoyable porter!

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

jbruner (3043) - 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 (3234) - 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 (8222) - Plymouth, 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 (819) - Lincoln, 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 (1097) - 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.
