Wonderful aroma. A little mintiness mixed with the oats. Thin head get didn't last long. Tastes great. Really nice drinkable porter. Enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The beer is black with just a tiny bit of brown at the edges. Creamy beige head. Roast, caramel, some mild dark fruit. A little bit of chocolate. Taste is moderately sweet, moderately dry finish. Caramel, cocoa, more of the same mild fruitiness. Creamy body, relatively low carbonation. Fairly sticky. Definitely an oatmeal porter.

Aroma has a noticeable oatmeal note. Medium light roast note with light chocolate character. Medium to medium light dark fruit esters. Hints of caramel and toffee. Pours dark brown, not quite black with a thick, dark tan head that recedes to a small film that lingers, thicker on edges. High lacing and smallish legs. Flavor is moderately sweet with a nice balance of roast and chocolate, both showing through nicely. Medium light dark fruit esters with a fairly strong oatmeal character. Medium bitterness and slight alcohol spice. Hints of caramel, toffee and butterscotch. Mouthfeel is rather full bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Fairly sticky, though it does dry out a bit in the finish. Sightly creamy. Overall, a nice porter but also just a porter. A lot of oatmeal character with some nice roast and chocolate. Secondary dark fruit notes with fainter caramel and toffee. I feel I prefer a regular, less sweet porter.

Thanks James for hooking me up. Black with average mouthfeel. Decent drinkability because of maltiness. Decent bitterness, though its secondary.

750 ml from my friend Sara W. Dated sticker that reads 11/20/14. Nice looking thick tan head sitting on a pitch black Porter. Aroma is dark chocolate, flaked oats, molasses and burnt sugar, nice!

The body of this Porter is thick and chewy with a substantial creamy texture across the tongue that turns into a dry ash hint. Nice coffee character through the sip with sugar and cocoa. Wow... Well made.

Bottle shared by a friend. Brown pour with a thick tan head. Oxidized nose with some sourness. Malty and chocolatey flavor with slight oxidation (sourness, cardboard) before a roasty finish. If I get a chance to try this again, I’ll re-rate.
