Cask --- good porter, pretty mild flavors, but drinks well. Deep color, with tan head. Not as rich as Founders, good balanced brew. LilBeerDoctor (3930) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2010
On cask at the brewpub. Pours black with a thick tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, raisins, but mostly roasted and smoky notes. Flavor of smooth chocolate and roasted malt. It has a chalky and smooth palate. An interesting cask porter.

Draft at brewpub. Pours black with a creamy light brown head that diminishes. Lighter side of medium bodied with a soft carbonation and smooth, silky mouthfeel. Favor of chocolate, mild roast coffee, and berry. Nice balance of residual sweetness and bitterness. Slight tang on the finish. Very nice deyholla (11602) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 20, 2009
Cask at the brewpub. Poured black with a medium brown head. Aroma was full of malts, with chocolate and licorice present. Flavor was full of dark chocolate notes with a bit of raisin underneath, but don’t pick up and sourness as in the description.

Vanilla aroma. Black strong in alcohol and a little rich on the palate. Fruity with a crisp and slightly dry coffee roast finish. flatmatt (1576) - Northville, Michigan, USA - AUG 10, 2009
On cask at the brewpub. Pours dark brown to black with a bubbly brown head. Aromas of dark roasty coffee and cocoa. Flavor is similar, with roasted coffee and dark cocoa, lots of roasty bitterness. Medium bodied, but with a watery mouthfeel. Nice flavors, but boring palate. xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - JUL 23, 2009
On cask at the brewery. Opaque black with small tan head. Aroma is roasty with slight roast and sourness and a little alc. Flavor is off-dry roast, slight sourness, not bad. Medium body, lightly syrupy. Pretty great, gerrit, you would love this. ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - DEC 4, 2008
From 10-Beer Flight at Arbor Brewing Company Brewpub on December 1, 2008.
Lovely lacing! Black, even darker with a much sweeter aroma than their Irish Stout. Silky palate, very easy going down. Very resinous and sweet. Good, but has an odd aftertaste. Sour. Gurst (338) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - SEP 6, 2008
A great porter! Dark chocolate kicks in, but it quickly melts into coffee. Deep, roasted flavor combines well with an excellent thick and creamy body. Finish is a bit of alcohol, but mostly fruit, bread crust.
