Very full bodied ale. This one pushes the limits. A porter on steroids. Chocolate, roast coffee and smoky undertones with a big creamy head. Hops are balanced by a large malt backbone. Welcome to the dark side. Built with 7 grains and 7 additions of 5 hop types.

Sort of a cardboard aroma. Light brown, like a dark American Brian ale. Thin tan head with medium sized bubbles. Smooth taste with chocolate but a little chalky. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DiarmaidBHK (4241) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2014
Bottle from Liquors 44. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Leaves some solid lacing in the glass. Decent malt notes on the nose. Has a hint of chocolate on the tongue. Finishes clean. Eh!

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Aroma is nutty coffee, like brown ale. Near black pour, thin film head. Unexpected bitter, smokey flavor, slight lactic sweet finish. Medium creamy body. This is a great basic porter in my opinion.

sailracer (486) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Tap. Pours a blackish brown that seems a little thin for a porter. Lots of chocolate roasted malt flavor up front that mellows as you drink it. Light on the carbonation and easy to drink. Decent for a porter, but not as robust I prefer.

This is a great beer. Pours dark and crystal clear with a beautiful frothy head. An extremely smooth malty start finishes even smoother with a sutle nutty, smoke flavor. I could drink a lot of these!

Had this casked. Slightly bitter aroma with strong roasted notes. flavor was fantastic, toasty but with plenty of hop bitterness. Wonderful balance. Beer was a little thin and the head left something to be desired look more like soda bubbles than a nice, tight head
