I think this beer tastes pretty good... Its a little light for a porter, but the flavor is pretty legit. Color is molasses with light tan head. Easy drinking for the cold months

Nate (4186) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2013
On tap at Twisted Jimmy’s. Mild coffee and cocoa nose, mild sweet malty character and no discernible hops. Lactose milky sweetness. Dark brown-black clear with thin head. Medium-light body with medium-high carbonation, fizzy on tongue. Starts sweet and a little watery. Sweet malt notes with light chocolate, lactose and a hint of coffee. Very little bitterness, with mild sweet finish and tang afterwards.

Theydon_Bois (16865) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2013
Bottle split at Christine and Daves thanks to DLJ, 26/11/13. Dark mahogony brown with a moderate tan covering that clears to a pond. Nose is brown sugars, earthy cocoa, honey roast nuts, milk chocolate. Taste comprises earthy cocoa, light metallic, dark toffee fudge, brown sugar, rather on the thin side and a step down from the aroma. Medium body, moderate carbonation, a little watery, dry light roast tones in the finish. So so porter lacking any real depth of flavour.

Voodoo (558) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Pours a very dark brown with a short white head which is gone quickly. Aroma of coffee and pine (odd combination). Taste is thin, odd, weak coffee, taste tales off into cardboard. A bit unpleasant.

ajnepple (5058) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 29, 2013
12 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount. Brown/black with a small head. Aroma of bitter chocolate, coffee, roasted malts. Similar flavor, a little ashy. Lightly sweet and bitter with a lighter body and a lingering unpleasant finish.

ROGUE (2182) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - SEP 21, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a solid brown color with a small bubbly head. Smells like cocoa mix and a bit of cappaccino. Taste is chocolately and somewhat sweet with an earthy quality. The taste is subtle and plain. Medium to light in body with a smooth creamy texture.

TheBeerCollector (633) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Pours opaque black with a short lived head. Aroma is dominated by cocoa and sweet malt. Flavor is smooth and rich with chocolate and roasted malt being dominant. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel. This certainly qualifies as a winter warmer.

superspak (4666) - Michigan, USA - JUN 29, 2013
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 5/6/2013. Pours crystal clear dark reddish brown color with a 1-2 finger dense cream colored head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of chocolate, cocoa, caramel, roasted malt, honey, toast, light coffee, light nuttiness, floral, and toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of dark and roasted malt notes; with decent strength. Taste of chocolate, cocoa, caramel, roasted malt, toast, toffee, honey, light nuttiness, light coffee, and toasted earthiness. Lingering notes of chocolate, cocoa, caramel, roasted malt, toast, toffee, honey, light nuttiness, and light coffee on the finish for a bit. Good balance of dark and roasted malt flavors with cocoa and honey additions; with a fair amount of robustness and no cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a creamy and slightly slick mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a nice porter. Good balance and solid robustness of roasted/dark malt flavors with cocoa/honey; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
