22 oz. bottle. Pours a clear dark brown that allows light to pass through with a moderate tan head that lasted until nearly mid-glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of mild roast and malt and not much else. The flavor is malt with some very mild roast and a bit of molasses. Slightly metallic in the aftertaste. Mild bitterness at the finish. On the lighter side of medium bodied. ryanfolty (2655) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - DEC 15, 2012

Bomber shared by Brandon - thanks! Rich clear deep amber pour with a small tan head. Roasty aroma with some sweet chocolate. Moderate palate. malrubius (3086) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Bottle from Garden City Budverage Center. Very dark brown with ring and lace. Earthy leafy chocolate and coffee aroma. Mildly roasted chocolate coffee medium sweetness subdued dark fruit with earthy medium bitter dry finish. Rather full bodied for a session porter. Pretty good. And even though I voted for Jill Stein, who represents the 99% of us who don’t have our own SuperPac, thank god that douchebag (R)money didn’t win the election. nimbleprop (8928) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 22, 2012
22oz bottle pours a translucent, deep brown with some creamy, off white head. Nice aroma, crackers, molasses, toasted bread, faint coffee, malt. Flavor is similar, some dark chocolate, crackers, brown sugar, toasted bread, light coffee. Medium bodied, dry finish. Very drinkable. A people’s porter.

Has some decent chocolate and roast scents. Taste is similar, but a bit watered down, decent chocolate with a nice sweet finish.
