BillWyce (1015) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2013
From notes: Poured deep, opaque nut brown with a 3-finger light tan head. Roasted malt aroma with a nutty note, and maybe a touch of citrus. Body is medium-to-full with a touch of astringent dryness in the finish. Flavor is nutty and roasty, with a touch of citrus from the hops. The hop note wouldn’t qualify as string, but definitely one of the hoppier porters I’ve had.

DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2013
Bottle from Whole Foods Plymouth Meeting. Pours dark brown and deep mahogany through direct light, with a 2-finger tan head. Nose is roasty choc/black patent malts, cacao, nuts. Tastes medium in heft and complexity, with a roasty malt flavor, mild cacao, heavy nutty flavors, and some finishing molasses. The repour gives more well-retained frothy head. This is a solid porter, with a complex tan head more legendary than Cassius Clay’s.

Deep brown/ruby with a thick, light brown head. Slightly lactic, heavy bitter chocolate scent. Bitter coffee grounds, burned chocolate flavor.. Thin, ashy....not overly appealing.

Dark with a tan head. Earthy and light citrus hops, light roasted malt, a bit of chocolate. Nice full body. Earthy hop, citrus, tart, coffee bean. Nothing out of the ordinary but a solid porter and one I could have a couple rounds of at the bar. Good stuff.

callmemickey (4285) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2012
From notes. Dark black brown body, small pale tan head, moderate lacing. Nose is roasted coffee and chocolate. Simple, but non-offensive. Flavor shows a similar two-note profile. Medium to full bodied, a little sweet, muddled finish.
