12 oz bottle. Bottled on 08/04/16. (Bellís) Kalamazoo, MI.
Halloween rooftop rating session in the dark. Chicago, IL.

Dark reddish brown color with a medium size foamy tan head. Toasted malt, bread, sweetness and some mild coffee in the aroma. The flavor is toasted malt, toasted bread, coffee, dryness and some chocolate. Quite alright.

hawthorne00 (3814) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 26, 2016
Bottle, 11C. Dark brown with a modest tan head thatís soon less than a coat. 3- Aroma of mildly roasted malt, licorice, some mocha. Smooth, lowish carbonation. Tastes as it smells with a slightly astringent bitter finish. Roasted and burnt flavours creep up. Crude but cheery.

jmohno (1586) - Iowa, USA - OCT 24, 2016
Dark. Creamy lacey head. Great aroma of dark berry, rich resiny coffee, milk chocolate. Some floral. Same in taste, dry finish. Smooth creamy, more chocolate than coffee, berry, mild cola. Sweet smoked, cherry, on the medium with sweetness and less robust than the average porter, less dry also but balanced and I favor porters more like this. .Citrus, herbal. Mild tang. Nice.

zoucrew102 (1725) - - OCT 15, 2016
Bottle. Roasted barley aroma with notes of chocolate and coffee. Pours very dark brown with a thin light brown head that has little retention but good lacing. Starts with chocolate malt and roasted barley flavors with a thinner body than expected. Finishes dry with a large amount of roasted coffee joining and overpowering the other flavors and settling on the palate after each sip. Decent porter, but the big coffee in the finish is not appealing to my palate.
