Derek881 (1006) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Poured a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a dark copper-brown color with a deep red hue and a thin, creamy tan head with little retention but good cling. Its aroma featured caramel and chocolate malt with a bit of earthy and grainy hops too. It tasted sweet with a chocolate flavor mixed with some caramel and a bit of bitterness too. The beer was fairly wet and slightly creamy with good fizz and liveliness, though a tad thin and light in the mouthfeel.

rjplumer (396) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 20, 2012
Mild mocha and hop aroma. Pours a deep dark brown that can be seen through if held up to the light with a mild tan head. Bitter with a chalky mouth feel. Feels quite carbonated for a Porter. Finish is on the sour side. Not a bad brew but it just seems a bit plain. I would drink it again but wouldn’t go out of my way for it.

pint draft at a bar next to Fenway Paahk. Burnt coffee aroma and a nice bitter chocolate flavor dominate. Not bad at all. Now I need to try the "Larry."

trade from MaBeer1972 -thanks! not much aroma; dark black w/minimal head; great first taste, but just ok after that - a little watery but an OK porter nice, nothing overpowering.

Boliv (1149) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2010
Bottle. Pours dark garnet red and brown with a sizable 2.5-finger brown head that fades slowly to leave a thick sheet of lacing. Aromas of roasty cocoa and molasses. Flavor is dark chocolate, molasses, caramel, espresso, and some bitter grass and mocha. A little thin, but it feels creamy. Good.
