Luvystypotables (1694) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - OCT 19, 2016
Aroma of cocoa, and coffee with a hint of smoked mat. Pours a black color with a tan head. Tastes of cocoa and smoked malt with a light body and a mild bitter cocoa finish.

degbert (1705) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 9, 2016
Can. Pours an opaque black with a high, creamy, fine-grained off-tan head. Nose is a bit subdued because of heavy head but has notes of vanilla, chocolate, roast nuts, and coffee. Much drier than the nose portended; smoke, baking chocolate, coffee, and fig predominant. Well structured and integrated. Finish is very very good; long, dry, piercing, and moving into licorice and espresso. Quite good.

overwhelmingly bitter, which is not my style. i could see some liking this if you like the more bitter side of beer, but im not a fan.

Very nice drinkable porter. Deep dark brown pour with tan head. Aroma is strong chocolate. Taste is creamy chocolate. Sweet and bitter balance well.

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Poured into a perfect pint. 4.5 A: Black color. Two fingers of creamy light brown head. Retention is very good and a finger ring of lacing is left. 4.0 S: As advertised, this has a big cocoa aroma from the start. Roasted malts, chocolate, layers of caramel, and molasses. A touch grainy with a solid neutral malt sweetness. 3.75 T: Tastes good too. Again, big cocoa with chocolate. Roasted malts, molasses, and caramel. 4.0 M: Medium body. Pleasantly creamy with good moderate carbonation. 3.75 D: My only issue with this brew is that it doesn’t hold up throughout the night. I had four of them yesterday but only really enjoyed my first two. ★ 661 characters DavoleBomb, Nov 08, 2014

Poured from 12 ounce can purchased as part of a mix 6 pack at Dent Kroger, tasted on December 27, 2015. Opaque brown color, aroma off cocoa and roasted malt with some distracting chemical notes, cocoa/roasted malt flavor compromised by a medicinal taste. This beer seemed much better when I had it previously, and that was also from a can. Hopefully I can try this on draft in the future.

Dark. Full of chocolate, lightly roasted malt, decent bitterness, sweet. Medium bodied. Finish is dryer than expected. Solid.

DocJitsu (1715) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - DEC 18, 2015
Pours a dark cola brown with a narrow taupe head. Pungent coffee aroma. Chocolate notes as well. Astringent. Dark chocolate and dark coffee bitterness.

JStax (5475) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - DEC 13, 2015
12 ounce can thanks to phaleslu. The beer is a dark brown with a khaki head of foam that has good retention. The aroma has a roasty, floral, and fruity character to it. A bit of ash. The taste is more toward the bitter side. Reminds me of a very dark chocolate. Medium body and medium carbonation.

A very nice Porter, with a good bitterness and burnt flavors, just a hint of cocoa and coffee flavors.
