stevoj (13177) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 7, 2022
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2022 Bottle at share. Dark brown pour with a small, fluffy tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Taste stays the course, light bitterness with rich roasty grain flavors.

evergreen0199 (5256) - Chorleywood, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2022
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2022 Bottle from Beers of America. A deep/dark brown coloured pour with a healthy beige head on top. Roasty, malty, chocolate, coffee taste and aroma. A decent bitter tasting porter from Three Floyds, almost a black IPA.

MaltOne (630) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 20, 2022
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2022 Pours opaque dark coffee brown; dark khaki head. Aroma is dark chocolate. Taste is a big dose of roasted coffee, and hints of chocolate and sweetness. Lots of hop-bitter as well. Palate medium to heavy, long finish. Dominant features are deep roast and a hop bitter. Temperature matters with this one... too cold and the sweet chocolate notes are overwhelmed by the dark roast bitter. A little warmer and they play role. Overall, excellent - though I agree with others who challenge the the 'porter' designation - The heavy hop bill (apparently signature 3Floyds) accentuates the hop component of Porter. Also FYI - the packaging says 7.3 ABV.

hman43 (3888) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - JAN 2, 2022
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2022 It pours very dark brown with a brown head. Head retention is very good. There are chocolate aromas with citrus hops and roast. There is a very low burnt quality to it with some floral notes. It has plenty of roast in the flavor with a bit of chocolate. There are citrus elements with some light floral and low pine. There is a very low burnt element well into the background. It has a medium full body with plenty of bitterness in the finish. There is a slight edge to the roast in the finish, but not harsh. Overall, it almost drinks like a black IPA, but the roast certainly makes is a worthwhile porter.

weitz15 (764) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 17, 2021
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2021 Dark brown/metallic pour, tan head. Aroma is brown sugar and malts. Flavor is of a robust amber ale, with a mild carbonated finish.

Itzjerm (3957) - Tennessee, USA - DEC 4, 2021
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2021 This is a black IPA ... not a porter in any way.. Its a good black IPA, but should be rated as such. Typical for style malty and hoppy spot on. Thin fading head. Enjoyable.

rennat42 (4679) - Ravenna, Nebraska, USA - NOV 14, 2021
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2021 Bottle. A- Roasty, smoke, charred wood, slightly hoppy. A- Black color, black liquid, beige head. T- Roasty, smoke, umami, char, bitter, cocoa. P-Full body, average texture, average carbonation, slightly bitter finish. O- Tasted more like a traditional RIS, didn't get a lot of Christmas spice. Not bad.

3.6
chucklemation (2826) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - OCT 29, 2021
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2021 Pours a dark brown with a tan foam head. Aroma is earth, roast, and chocolate. Flavor is bitter roast and chocolate. Pretty good.

3.8
Jow (6559) - The Hop, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 25, 2021
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2021 Grabbed a bottle from Julios. Dark pour and ok sized head. Law is light roast and molasses. Tastes of ash, brown sugar, bitter dark chocolate, earthy, licorice. Lighter bodied than expected.

3.1
Kleg (2307) - The Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 5, 2021
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2021 Christmas in June. 12 oz. bottle from Craft Brewed in Nashville, TN. Pours a super dark brown color with a large tight light brown head and great retention. Great lacing too. Coffee and treacle/molasses aroma. Similar flavors: Roasted coffee and malts are dominant with a strong treacle/molasses finish. Medium-heavy body. Semi-slick mouthfeel. Low carbonation and light bitterness. Classic porter, but too much molasses for me.
