KajII (777) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - MAR 18, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a medium brown with an orange hue and a large (2-3 finger) khaki colored rocky head that diminished to a thin layer of residue with a decent collar and had fair lacing. The aroma was super light of a toasted chocolate malt, a mild resin hop and a doughy yeast with notes of chocolate and coffee. The taste was lightly sweet with a hint of chocolate at first then became a smooth bitter malty with a note of coffee towards the end. The flavor lasted a short while with a weak coffee taste left behind. Mouthfeel was just a little shy of medium in body and had a slight watery texture with a mild but firm carbonation. Overall the taste was a little stronger than the aroma but still was a tad on the mild side...

madvike (2658) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Bottle - Pours cola colored with a light tan head. Nose is metal, chocolate, honey, and dark sweet malt. Taste is honey bread, cocoa, milky with brown sugar and honey finish. Real jacked up carbonation with a thin body.

felsenpils (104) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 1, 2014
12 ounce bottle. Pours black with off-white foam. The aroma is roasted malt, but I miss the esters in an English porter. The taste is somewhat thin and lackluster. Not very good, but drinkable I suppose. All that they got right was the color and that´s it.

Christpuncher (946) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2014
A real easy to drink porter. Not too smokey and light in alcohol. Pours almost black in color. Smells smokey. Bad at hq in Wisconsin ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

crossovert (6927) - Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2014
335ml bottle, darker pour. Smell is reminiscent of anchor porter but better. Caramel and toffee, soft hops, soft roast. Falvor also bings to mind anchor porter with an almost crippling english ale yeast character. This one has more cocoa and is more redeemable.

Dfonorow (1327) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 18, 2014
On tap at Milwaukee Brew Fest 2013. Pour is dark brown with a slight ruby tint and a small tan head. Aroma and flavor of semi-sweet chocolate, roasted nuts, smoked malts, and a bit of honey. Thin, watery finish.

Bottle. Dark brown pour with a smaller cream colored head. Aroma of nuts and coffee. Medium palate - easy drinking. Very slight sweetness. Not too bad.
