Aroma is nice and earthy and grassy. The aftertaste is also very fresh and grassy. revoltingblob (48) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 14, 2015
Bought this from Beer Mongers in Portland, OR 11 months ago. Kind of forgot about it. Bebum (1098) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Dark, black coffee appearance. Small head with little to no lacing. Still fairly carbonated and it retained some of the dry hop aroma. Smells very nice! Lot’s of subdued caramel, maltiness with some cocoa bits in there. Taste is surprisingly dry hoppy still with some licorice and caramel malt sweetness. Pretty tasty. Nice balance with the carbonation. Nice light richness in the mouthfeel with some cool textural quality. Really decent beer I wish I had drank fresh!
Coca cola brown, lasting tan head.
Medium body, well flavored, refreshingly crisp, little heat but nice carbonation, lingering and tasty finish.
Bitter predominantly but plenty of sweet counternotes and balancing acidity.
Roast and hop flavors compete, adding much complexity, interest and pleasure to this delicious experiment.

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2016 Pours dark brown almost black, little head. The aroma is roast, caramel, earthy. Flavor is roasty, burn, coffee, sweet with suttle caramel. Really good. Overall aged for two years allows the flavors to develop well. Would recommend

Pours a deep ruby-black/brown with a large fluffy tan head. Aroma of chocolate, fruit, yeast, malt and hops. Flavourful taste is roasty and chocolatey with significant hops and fruit. Full bodied. Great porter! sinfull (1817) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 14, 2015
Black color , medium-size beige head. Malty , chocolate aroma of a porter mixed with aroma of the american hop. Taste is more traditional :malt , coffee, chocolate . However ,hop shows up again in the end, as the interesting mix of hoppy and roast bitterness.
