Dark poor with black reddish coloration. Nice even body with hints of chocolate and sweet wine overtones.

Tap at Cap Ale Downtown. Very dark with big foamy head and lacing. Smells like toast and roast with a metallic note. Smooth and creamy with a light roasty flavor.

Aroma is fresh brewed coffee. Dark, pitch black. Coffee taste with a touch of unsweet chocolate. Average mouthful for a porter. Solid, but I wish it gave me more.

Drank on the porch with a cigar. Pours cola brown with thick tan head. Scent is chocolate and coffee. Taste is similar with cocoa, coffee, and roasted malts. A bit of smokiness and dark fruit as well unless that's coming from the cigar. Good light porter.

Bottle at The Exchange in Corpus. Very dark with a creamy tan head. Roasty and dark chocolate aroma with some coffee and some light indistinct hop. Smooth.

hauxe (757) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - MAY 23, 2017
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 (2141) - 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.

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.

4.2
beern (101) - Alabama, USA - APR 24, 2017
Pours black, amber with a 2-finger pillowy tan head. Tastes of malt, cocoa & yeast

3.6
oobawa (1401) - 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.
