callmemickey (2253) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Light-medium brown. Solid off-white head. Decent retention and lacing. S: Coffee, caramel, roasted chocolage, earthy hops T: Mostly coffee and roasted malt flavors. Bitter earthy hop finish. M: A bit thin, but smooth. Crisp finish. O: Pleasant, but unremarkable flavorings detract from the drinkability here.

Leighton (9833) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2009
Not bad. I love porters but I found this one a little light in body. Great nose and flavor: coffee, chocolate, roasted malts. Very clean finish. On tap at Pony Bar in NYC.

TeamTrappist (830) - jericho, New York, USA - JUL 6, 2009
Tap at The Blind Tiger. Poured a dark thinnish black. Nose was big coffee, chocolate,and burnt malts. You would figure this to be a big mouthful, but it is definitely on the thin side. Flavors are not thin though, they are big and pronounced.Very nice coffee bitter finish.

JoeMcPhee (8188) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2008
Tap at Hop Devil Lounge. Great aroma. Nice soft chocolate and cocoa up front. There is a nice herbal/spicy character that reminds me a bit of root beer. Heavy cocoa and a toasty/roasty character. There is a soft herbal hoppiness that accents the roastiness. A pretty prominent fruity aroma/flavour that works for me. It’s a pretty nice beer although it might be a little sweet. Nice complexity though.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - DEC 29, 2008
Draft at EVT. A perfect looking beer with a two finger head and nice clarity. Smells like a cocoa milkshake. Flavor is nicely toasty and nutty with a nice hop bite. A really tasty beer with a slight milkyness to it. Plenty bitter too.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2008
Brown in color with a bit of chocolate and roast in the nose. Flavor is roasty, chocolatey, and has a bit of coffee with some sweetness. Best new Victory beer in awhile.

Goodgrief (1742) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - NOV 27, 2008
Sampled at the brewpub. This one was good…a lot going on here. Rich flavor of chocolate, roasted coffee beans and a noticeable fruitiness which complimented the typical porter flavors quite well. Both hugely sweet and hugely roasty. Good stuff.
