On tap at the Burlington location. I was surprised to see the low rating here...I thought this was pretty good, albeit simple. Smooth, silky, tastes of chocolate. Easy to drink and not too heavy.

DrDavid (957) - Johnson, Vermont, USA - DEC 14, 2008
Draft at the brewpub. Slightly smoky aroma. Reddish black body, tan head. Overly mild flavor, caramel and malts. Nice finish, but otherwise a disappointment.

santos999 (318) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2008
Thanks to Paul for bringing the growler! Pours a deep reddish brown with a nice beige head. The aroma is very roasty with nice chocolate and coffee notes. The taste is very full and satisfying – lots of roasted malts, coffee, and cocoa, with nicely restrained hop bitterness that pulls it all together. The mouthfeel is perfectly full and rich, but finishes clean. A damn fine, easy drinking porter.

Tap. Mild and drinkable middle-of-the-road porter. Roasty enough, hoppy enough, and cold enough. Nothing special but I enjoyed it.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 16, 2006
Pours a nearly-opaque dark brown with a thin ring of tan head. Aroma is mild and lightly-roasted with a touch of English hops. Body starts with a semi-sweet toasty, then dry malty presence with a nice bittering balance. Has a smooth, yet full malty palate. A nice, easy drinking and flavorful porter.
