On tap at Schaumburg location. Pour is deep dark brown and little to no head. Medium mouthfeel and a bit sweet upfront. Notes of sweet chocolate and smoky ash but leaves a bit to be desired. Not great but ok.
---Rated via my mouth
A pretty standard porter. Lots of dark chocolate and hints of coffee linger. Tried after HILT in 2016 in Indianapolis. Homer321 (5045) - Melboring, Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2016
Draft at source. Aroma of chocolate and light coffee. Light cocoa. Deep brown to black pour. Small light brown head. Taste is all chocolate, bordering on bakers chocolate to a dark Hershey chocolate. Medium mouthfeel with modest carbonation. Not bad. bnokk (528) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 27, 2016
Drinking it on draft at the RAM. APPEARANCE- super dark, but not black. Light head laces well.
NOSE- roasty malt, chocolate scents create an allure for my mouth as I prepare to drink this black beauty.
FLAVOR- also nicely roasty and slightly chocolaty. Little bit of bitterness to balance the sweetness.
nicely done porter. Ron (3923) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 12, 2015

On tap at Big Horn U District, pours a deep dark brown with a reddish together and a small tan head. Nose brings out toasted malt, some cocoa, and bready notes. Flavour is along the same lines, with bready malt, dry cocoa and a slight nuttiness. Well-balanced and clean. Very drinkable porter. theisti (4114) - Kansas, USA - MAR 27, 2015
Served as Humperdinks Total Disaster Porter. Nonic pint draft at the Humperdinks in Dallas, Texas. The pour is an opaque brown black with a 1/2 inch well formed tan head. The aroma is sour malt, hint of roast and some vanilla sweet. The taste is iced coffee with milk, big shot of diacetyl as the beer warmed. The palate is medium to light bodied, low carbonation and the off flavors in the finish. Old school brewpub beer in all the wrong ways.

Draft - Toasted malts and roast. Deep black brown with a small beige head. Molasses, anise and some dark roast coffee. Pretty decent, with a roasty light burnt finish.
