4.2
Cakes (628) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2020
UPDATED: APR 26, 2020 Twelve ounce bottle. Easily one of the best in its class. Dark ebony with a dark beige head. medium spiced with a nice nose to it. They hit a home run with this.

3.2
raymow (2693) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2020
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2020 on tap at The Hulmeville Inn - nice dark color. Starts out sweet but finishes spicy with a slightly odd flavor.

3.8
katrinaez (3670) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 12, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2020 Pours a dark brown color, lots of bitter malts in the taste, definitely its defining quality, very smooth, tap.

3.9
gripweed57 (4523) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - DEC 28, 2019
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2019 12 ounce bottle. opaque black brown color. Small bubbly tan head. Roasted malt aroma is somewhat subdued. Flavor is roasted malt and treacle. Quite hoppy for a Porter. Resiny hops throughout. Complex and potent.

3.5
commonmac (1826) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 28, 2019
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2019 Served up on tap at Busters on a Friday night. Snifter glass. Darker cola brown...almost black. Strong lacing initially. Aroma is floral with hops taking charge. There are characteristics of spices present but they are mostly drowned out. Taste plays into its bitterness to a degree. There's an undercurrent of malty sweetness but mostly overwhelmed by the crazy hops. Dark chocolate bitterness finishes things off. Falls short of what I expected.

4.8
grundsow (206) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 19, 2019
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2019 Pours a deep, non-translucent black with an uncommonly viscous head. Roasted malts are unexpectedly dry and pleasantly bitter. Very good.

4.2
bhiner41 (217) - Darien, Illinois, USA - NOV 29, 2019
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2019 Pours root beer brown with a brown tinted head. Has a definite chocolate note, sugar, and hops. Dry hopped finish. Really interesting dry porter, not overly sweet. Coffee notes at the end.

4.1
AgentAle (2536) - Fort Mcmurray, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 9, 2019
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2019 Aroma is dark malts, smoked grain, chocolate and toffee. Taste is dark sweet malts, caramel, rye spice, and a mild spiciness and odd hop profile.

4.4
BREWMUSKCLES (3050) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 20, 2019
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2019 Big roasty and chewy bitter tobacco like chocolate in ferocious freaky piney and vine hops with ear wax. Some cocoa and i'm gonna say sanka cause i'm friggin tired of saying coffee and this brewer probably never heard of sanka cause they are the epitome of real ingredients. oy yeah oily like Tex..aahhh Michigan crude. Ode to my Ypsilanti fairy.

4.4
anstei (3810) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 12, 2019
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2019 Bottle, from 2017. Pours black. Aroma is barrel, chocolate, toffee, caramel, coffee. Body is heavy, strong and rich, with a decent and present carbonation. Still strong flavours, not sticky, but still complex. Very good.
