Rich dark body with a frothy tan head. Caramel malts, thick, refreshing, delicious. Strongly approve of this one. morehops (39) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2005
Nice smooth chocolate porter. Had it on tap at their brew pub in Gettysburg. Maybe a little thin, but definately smooth and drinkable austinpowers (2831) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 5, 2003
A mild, English-style porter that has little in the way of aroma or roastiness. While I miss the aroma, there are times when I enjoy a mild porter with some malt and little bitterness. Pleasant. Dickinsonbeer (5073) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2003
On tap at ABC. THis was very smoooth and enjoyable at the brewery, however, when I had it at another bar on tap it was somewhat different and had a metallic taste and wasnt nearly as smooth.(maybe bad tap lines) Overall it had a slight roasty aroma and flavor, but the caramel malts came through a little more. Although this beer is well attenuated and has a dry finish, it somehow retains a very nice body and mouthfeel. Very well done. Nejhleader (1574) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2005
very simliar to ABC’s stout. Not as dry or as dark. More of a roast to it, more flavor overall. A slightly above average porter.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2012 Cask... Poured a dark brown / red color with a medium sized tan head that left nice lacing. Weak roasty, chocolate cream aroma. Nice chocolate taste, some more roast and light smoke, cherries as well. Very thin mouthfeel. Not a bad porter. f351c4v (411) - Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2009
Pours a very dark brown with a lacing, off white head. Graham crackers and chocolate on the aroma. Sweet, with hints of ground, roasted coffee, bitter finish. Very nice. Travlr (26406) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 9, 2015
Draft. Opaque brown color, thick tan head with good tetention and lacing. Aroma of cocoa. Taste is cocoa powder, brownies. asheft (3125) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 13, 2017
[On tap at brewpub]
Gently smoky molasses aroma with a little red fruit. Opaque orange-black under a persistent tan cover and lace. Sweet, toasted hazelnuts and dried fruit and dark chocolate bar flavour with a not quite assertive bitterness and a dry finish. Medium body, medium carbonation, crisp and dry in the end.
