On tap. Pours black with nice tan head. Aroma is chocolate, some other dark malt character. Taste is slight sweet, balanced, smooth. Very well done, not in your face style but quite delicious. obguthr (6304) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2015
Coffee nose. Cola brown, medium tan head. The flavor is fairly sweet coffee with a beechwood finish. Medium body, alcohol not noticeable. Hearty and robust, solid. Butters (4059) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 21, 2014
At the brewpub served as Original Nitro Porter. Very dark clear brown pour with good creamy tan persistent head. Subtle cocoa and cracker notes and lots of roastiness on the nose. Flavor is surprisingly sweet and with earthy, leather, milky chocolate tones. Big velvety mouthfeel. And despite all those good aspects, I still didn’t care for it all that much. But objectively, it was a pretty good beer.
