Bottle. Chocolate smell is noticable. Taste is dark roasted malts, barley, some chocolate and lemon Steve_0 (3745) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 10, 2013
Bottle at home via trade. Pour is deep brown, almost black with a frothy tan head and great lacing. Roast, coffee, light vanilla, toffee, somewhat hoppy, caramelly, and bready aroma. Taste is also roasty, slightly chocolatey, somewhat muted vanilla, sweet malt., nutty, toffee, piney, and biscuit with a semi-toasted finish. Light body with medium carbonation. Not bad and definitely sessionable, but could really benefit from a little more body and more robust flavors. Slipstream (2651) - USA - FEB 16, 2013
On draft at The Pony Bar. A really good malty, smoky porter. Good name too! It is nicely balanced, with a little astringency. The aroma grows nice as it warms. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - FEB 7, 2013
It poured a nice jet black in color with a nice frothy head. The smell had some cocoa, chocolate, and coffee tones to it with a decent amount of roast to it. The taste is pretty balanced with the noted smells. A good finish somewhat sweet and roasty. The palate was creamy and had a medium body to it. I would have this again. r464 (2362) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Dark with a tan head that overflowed and took forever to settle. Roasty malt, smooth throught the finish. Fuller than most porters.

Average, but nice. Roasted aroma and flavors. Dry finish. Not too exciting. Would like a little more flavor. Clean and fairly light bodied. bmanLS (134) - Gibsonia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2013
This porter pours out dark brown amber with a small fizzy head and some lacing remains on the glass. In the glass it is appears opaque black. Thin consistency in the mouth, caramel flavor with a carbonation bite and strange after taste that lingers that I can’t pinpoint. Decent porter. I enjoyed it.

Bottle. Pours black. Aroma is roasted malts and coffee. Flavor is sweet maltswith a bitter coffee finish. Beerathon (1683) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Watery brown in color with red fleks. Nice tan head with good retention. Bit a smokey scent from the roasted malts. Full mouth feel and flavor. Tingles on the end of the tongue from carbonation. Bitter coffee comes through. Decent. scottw86 (1177) - Maryland, USA - OCT 9, 2012
Poured a very dark brown with a thin off-white head. Aroma is slightly fruity with some cherries. Some yeast notes with caramel and chocolate. Taste is also suprisingly fruity with a slightly tart feeling. The taste transitions to a roasted malty flavor with nuts. Aftertaste is a little astringent with some hoppy notes. Interesting!
