Good aroma. Love the coffee flavor this has and comes out more as time goes on. Finishes off nicely.

RABinCO (1297) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Bottle thanks to daknole. Pours nearly black with a nice pillow of off-white head that fades to a film and leaves spotty lacing. Aroma is slightly sweet roasted malts. Taste is spectacular overall. Great balanced of smoke, chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts without being too strong. Definitely straddles the line between stout and porter, but still lands on the lighter side.

Mora2000 (5705) - McKinney, Texas, USA - DEC 30, 2012
The beer pours a dark brown-red color with an off-white head. The aroma has a lot of chocolate and toffee. The flavor is similar. I get some cocoa and nuts, as well as some toasted malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Finhead (1187) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Deep brown with some reddish highlights and a light brown head. The aroma has roasted malt, dark chocolate, and mild coffee. It has a medium body with creamy texture and average carbonation. The taste is roasted with some mild bitterness and a dry finish.

Cybercat (3333) - Georgia, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Pours a deep chocolaty brown, barely translucent at the edges, with a fairly thick light tan head. Smoky aroma has notes of chocolate, roast malt and caramel. Satisfying flavor has a roast malt core plus notes of chocolate and caramel and hints of molasses and hops. Smooth texture has decent body and good fizz.

dfinney23 (1680) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 17, 2012
A solid porter with no unnecessary bells or whistles. Initial aroma is quite smoky, giving way to roasted coffee and chocolate. Taste is similar with less smoke. Good stuff!

beastiefan2k (2433) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Moving out of KS rate-a-poolza. 22oz bottle poured into an Ommegang tulip glass. Pours with a strong khaki head atop a black body. As the head fades it leaves a sticky lacing. Aroma is a nice and simple mineral roast, light yet full and clean. Flavor unsweetened cocoa with a clean yet spritzy mouthfeel. Mineral finish with a long but light roast aftertaste. Simple and right on the money.

jrodooo5 (1019) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - DEC 18, 2013
Incredible roasted chocolate aroma w/ a great deep dark pour w/ a tan head the slowly fizzles into decent lacing. The taste doesn’t quite live up to the scent however. The body is a touch thin but still packs a big roasty punch. It leaves some solid bitterness on the tongue & overall is a really good beer!

jandd1983 (2572) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 10, 2012
It poured a dark brown color with a small tan head. The aroma was dark fruit, coffee, chocolate and toffee. The taste was chocolate, coffee, some burnt toast, another dark fruit (maybe dates) and a grassy dry finish. Very good Porter.
