Growler. Aroma of solidly roasted malt, plenty of roasted coffee, chocolate notes behind. Flavor has tons of coffee for me, seemed they could even get away with calling it a coffee porter. Great roast throughout, never burnt, just well roasted. Nice porter.

LilBeerDoctor (3422) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2009
Growler from the brewpub. Pours black with a small ring of tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, roasted nuts, chocolate, peanut butter. Flavor is equally nutty, with some charred roasted malt and bitter chocolate. Excellent porter with a nice blend of roasted malt, nuts, and chocolate. Very drinkable too. Well done! 8/4/8/4/17 [4.1/5]

hophead75 (2008) - Largo, Florida, USA - DEC 6, 2008
sampled at the brewpub. Almost black in color with ruby highlights at the bottom of the glass. Tan lasting head. Aroma- alot of chocolate, some roast, dark fruit, chalk and molasses. Taste has alot of chocolate and some roast, some dark fruit, and medium bodied with a good caramel backbone. Excellent porter

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 11, 2008
Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Smells of chocolate, lactic, some dark fruit. Tastes of bitter roasted malt, lots of sweetness to counteract the bitterness, some chocolate, some licorice hints. Nice!

joebudzjoe (668) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 18, 2008
At the pub. Yum yum yum. Even in a simple pint glass, this porterís aroma is potent. A nicely textured beer, hints of dark chocolate, vanilla & coffee float around the palate. I donít like to pick favorites, but this is one of the best Willi has offered.

elihapa (1525) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - MAY 17, 2008
on tap at brewpub. Pours a dark brown with no head. Aroma of toasted notes, wood and coffee. Palate was surprisingly light with little carbonation. However, this beer has delicious flavors of coffee, ash, hops, and semisweet chocolate. Maybe some dark fruit in there as well. Finishes fairly dry. Overall, very impressive.

LooseCannon (938) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAY 6, 2008
On tap at the Brewpub. Pours pitch black in color with brown head. Aroma chocolate, coffee and sweet aroma. Taste of coffee and dark chocolate with bitter dark chocolate. Outstanding flavor.
