12 oz. bottle in a pint glass. Pours a dark brown with a medium, light mocha head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, and a bit of coffee. Taste is mostly roasted malts with a little bit of chocolate, no coffee. Not too bad, but Iím not really a porter/stout guy.

A really smooth porter. Not too smokey. Not much coffee flavor. Easy to drink and had this one at home. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Itís like a delicious barbeque in my mouth. Never really liked porters much but hadnít tried one in a while. Unfortunately, I started with Bells and now my expectations are way too high. Hickory goodness.

Solid porter with nice chocolate flavors. Soft flavors and very approachable clearly distinguishes itself from a stout which a lot donít.

BucannonXC5 (1612) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 6, 2014
Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Lagunitas mason jar From: Bine & Vine Bottleshop in Normal Heights (San Diego), Calif. Price: $2.19 Purchased: June 6, 2014 Consumed: June 6, 2014 Misc.: Packaged on April 3, 2014 Poured an almost pitch black color with two fingers of khaki-tan head, which settled along nicely on the top. Very good amount of spiderweb, layered lacing along the sides of the glass. Fantastic retention on the top of the glass all the way down. Smelled caramel espresso malts. Also toffee, roasty nuts, buttery malts, dark chocolate, caramel fudge and faint coffee beans. Tasted dark chocolate, crayon, smoky fire, almost ashtray, bitter coffee notes, roasty nutty malts, slight butter malts and a bit of burnt toast. Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, smooth finish. A pretty good porter overall. Not my favorite, but probably better than most. Iíd have it again.

Aroma is very light...nothing really distinct. Flavour is sweet caramel, semi sweet chocolate and espresso.

Aroma of chocolate and smoke. Taste is chocolate, smokey, roasted malts, mild hops, easy drinking!

ljthiessen (1257) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 13, 2014
This was a bit underwhelming. Nice flavour - chocolate, coffee, some roasty malt - but somewhat light bodied. Still a good porter - and quite nicely balanced - but a bit lacklustre.

35,5 cl bottle @ tiong, bottled 26.12.2013
Aroma has roasty malty tones, licorice, dark chocolate and coffee. Flavour has roasty tones, toffee, some licorice and hints of cold coffee. Also hints of syrup and toasted sugar. Sweet and thin, a bit disappointing.
