Brown color. Robust roasted aroma tastes roasted and sweet with some hop balance. Really drinkable and enjoyable porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Dark pour with thin tan head. Smells of toasted malts, chocolate and slight sweet fruit. Tastes of the same. A little thin on the body. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour is dark brown/black with a thinnish tan head. Nose is bitter almost sour. Very yeasty. Some hints of burnt coffee and dark bitter chocolate. Taste is more pleasant than nose. Nice roasted malt flavor with dry burnt coffee mouthfeel. Glass has nice lacing as I drink. Okay but glad it was part of a build your own sixer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rather impressive porter, with a dark, nutty robustness that steals the show. Pours a dark, almost oily brown to black, with a great profile and aroma. Nice one for sure.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Pours a dark brown with a light beige head. The aroma has burnt coconut and chocolate. Taste is bittersweet chocolate with a nice toasty note. Thicker mouthfeel. Nice beer.

Pours a dark ebony with frothy voluminous tan head. Aroma is dominated by strong dark roasted malt and a bit of chocolate notes.The taste is a great blend of bitter and sweet notes. An easy finish makes for a very delicious session able porter

DeliveryDriver (170) - Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Pours black with a two finger sized, tan head. Had aromas of roasted coffee, vanilla, licorice, and a bit of milk chocolate. Pretty sweet going down, with a mild hop bite on the end. Roasty aftertaste, and was not as smooth as 5.4% would indicate. Pretty good porter at a decent price.

TheHOFF43 (1759) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Bottle. Pours dark black with no head. Aroma is roasted malts. Flavor matches aroma. Still a little drunk, still nothing special. Blahhhhhhh.

Slightly phenolic with hints of coffee. Appears black, but hold it up to a light and it has some red hues around the edges. Slightly acrid with a coffee roast/bittnerness that comes through. Just enough malt sweetness and dryness to make you want another sip.
