Tap at brewpub. Dark ruby colour, small steady beige head, lace. Toasted, cola candy aroma. Light-bodied to medium-bodied. Light toastyness, caramel, coffee but also vegetables lurking around the corner. Watery finish. Kind of meh brewpub beer (what it is not). unclefrito62 (436) - Stow, Ohio, USA - NOV 12, 2017
12 ounce can at home. Has malty aroma with a medium size head, which is tan in color. This brew is deep brown in color. You can really taste the malt with slight hints of chocolate. Lighter/medium mouth feel and very smooth. This is an above average beer which is extremely drinkable. Cheers! kramer (6989) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2017
Can. Pours a dark brown body with a one finger fizzy brown head that faded to a thin covering. The nose is heavy chocolate malt with some lesser notes of roast, caramel, and citrusy hops. The flavor is a little thin, which is surprising given how intense the aroma was. A little overly fizzy as well, which detracts from both the flavor and the mouthfeel for me. Some lingering burnt malt on the finish. Not a big fan of this one.

Can (Feb 24, 2017 canning).
Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, brown, mostly/fully diminishing.
Body is dark brown to black.
Aroma is moderately malty (chocolate syrup, roasted grain), with a note of vanilla.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery texture, fizzy/lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
Very simple aroma, and kinda sweet and flabby in the mouth. Pretty dull and forgettable, but not there’s not too much wrong with it otherwise.

Toast, kibble, cardboard aroma. Cola brown, thin tan head. Cardboard, coffee, raisin. Medium body, easy carbonation. Darwenus (1185) - Virginia, USA - DEC 11, 2016
Not an unusual or surprising porter, but a solid one. Pours dark, chocolate brown with little head. The aroma is coffee, chocolate, porter malts. The flavor is the same, but it closes with a slight but nice hoppy twang. I’d drink this again. rxeight (3344) - Illinois, USA - OCT 29, 2016
