Aroma: Mmmm...chocolatey, but not very strong aroma. Its a very black beer...looks more like coke than beer. Almost no head, but it does maintain a fine layer of lace. As for the taste...well, if I warmed it up, it would taste like a cup of cocoa...(go figure). Anyhow...its got a chocolate flavor with almost no carbonation and a lasting cocoa / bitter aftertaste. Its not horrible, but I definitely wouldn’t buy it again.

bottle @ Vino Bellissimo / Lima OH --- Aroma of toasted malt. Opaque black color, 1" tan head, bands of lace. Taste is sweet malt that adds mild fizz on the swallow, turning from there to what seem like cocoa hops in the finish. All the parts don’t make a harminic whole, with much seeming to be awkwardly place. The good parts are there - they just don’t go together very well.

Heavy dark chocolate flavor. Not overpowering, but not much besides. Would drink again, but not if a better porter is available.

Purchased at ShopRite Liquors. Poured from a twelve ounce bottle to a pint glass. Pours a nice deep, dark brown with zero head. Not much aroma to speak of. Tastes of chocolate and just a nip of honey, tastes a bit watered down.

Beerathon (1679) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 31, 2015
Brown pour with thin head. Like the head, the beer is very thin. Coffee and chocolate in the nose and flavor. The flavors and aromas aren’t good though, seem a bit off. Not digging it.
