MaltOne (358) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Pours near opaque deep copper brown. Full, dense light tan head - receding to a thin but persistent lace cap. Minimal coffee aroma. Taste of chocolate and coffee, roasted grain. Medium body, and mouth feel. Overall, nicely balanced, lighter then expected, but a in the very drinkable category.

Bottle thanks to wombat23. Pours very dark brown and leaves a creamy, tan head. Aroma is chocolate, cow dung(!), a bit of smoke, roasted grainy notes. Taste is nice: lightly sweet up front, smoky, turning both sour and evincing a roasted coffee bitterness going into the finish. Body is medium with a mild carbonation. Overall not bad, apart from that odd fecal note.

jamaty (2112) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 1, 2017
Marrón oscura, casi negra, de espuma ocre no muy abundante y poco duradera, que deja buen cerco. Aroma a café tostado, no muy intenso. Excelente punto de gas, cuerpo entre ligero y moderado, y un paso por boca suave, con un sabor muy equilibrado y agradable. Ricas maltas tostadas, chocolate y toque ligeramente ahumado. Postgusto claro a chocolate. Bien rica.

Brandon1989 (635) - Lewisville, Texas, USA - APR 26, 2017
Pours a dark brown with a thick creamy tan head that left some nice lacing around the glass. The aroma is of coffee, chocolate, and brown bread. The flavor is more of the same.

oobawa (1192) - Tennessee, USA - APR 19, 2017
Good porter, dark and moderately bitter, strong mocha vibe backed by a firm roasted bitterness. Bright coffee notes on the back end prevent any lingering sweetness, and the fade offers up an unexpected modest floral hop streak. Nose is no great shakes, bland with a strange metallic undertone, yet the pint looks great, a deep dark brown with an off-white head and solid lacing. Texture flirts with being too thin, but the bitter finish leaves me okay with it. Seems like a fairly no-frills porter, not great but easy-drinking and enjoyable just the same.

Probably the quintessential example of an american porter. Just spot on for the style. However, that makes it not overly exciting either. barleymash SD

tcon25 (797) - Duvall, Washington, USA - APR 17, 2017
Bottle pour at home, didn’t know I had this. Going through the stash and found this jem. Black pour thin head, soft roasted coffee. Flavor is a little creamy, coffee and chocolate not a barrel flavor but does have some smoke.

Bottled. Nutty and malty all the way through. Smooth with a nice balanced carbonation.

Very nice straight-ahead porter. Big chocolate and coffee taste and aroma with some smokey char. But drinks light enough to crave another.
