GTAEgeek (2117) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 8, 2016
12 oz. can. Black color, with ruby highlights, and a small, foamy, khaki head. The nose is initially vanilla pudding and cocoa. Underlying notes of dark roast coffee and spruce. Sweet and very malty, with an earthy bitterness that lingers. Medium to heavy body, with a chalky, sharp mouthfeel. This is a nicely roasty porter; aggressive, but not abrasive.

smroush (259) - Michigan, USA - OCT 20, 2016
Aromas of caramel and grain; not much hop presence. There is a generalized bitterness, but its fairly indistinct in terms of specific hop flavors. Black in color. Taste is slightly sweet; bitterness is moderate. There is just a slight harshness to the taste. Body is medium; texture oily; carbonation is just slightly lively. Finish is average to a bit long. Overall a fairly simple beer; ok, but not a lot of complexity or interest.

NachlamSie (3424) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 25, 2016
Six pack from the Bozeman airport. Solid, dark appearnace. looks like a porter. Malty, obviously. Its heavy on the chocolate and caramel notes. The palate is medium heavy. Flavor is pretty sharp, a little astringent even. Notes of nutshells, caramel, chocolate, gas station coffee. Finishes ashy. It got better as it warmed.

Less roasted malt and coffee than in an average Porter, but pleasantly heavy on the caramel, with complements chocolate. Lower on the abv spectrum, but not flavor or body.

APPEARANCE ? perfect blackness, light beige head. NOSE ? great coffee notes backed by some malty sweetness. FLAVOR ? backs up the great scents well. Solid porter, almost approaching a stout level of roastiness and depth.

bartzluke (598) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 17, 2015
12 oz pour from a refrigerated can into a shaker pint. Black and opaque with a solid tan head. Very chocolatey nose. Sweet, milky, caramel aromas as well. Taste reflects the nose, but with the milky caramel flavors coming through even stronger. Great balance of sweet and dry. One of the best sweet porters Ive yet had.

Spirited, without the heavy or gritty feeling some porters come with. I'd drink it in a pinch, but not my top porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Transfer from BA review on 5-4-14- Poured from can into a pint glass Appearance The beer pours deep deep brown color with a huge thick tan colored head. The head has a fantastic level of retention slowly fading to leave a rings of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell The aroma of the beer is quite delicious with lots of sweet smells of caramel and toffee as well as a great showing of milk chocolate and roasted malts. Along with these aromas are some very light hints of vanilla and some light dark fruit aromas. Quite chocolaty, sweet, and smooth. Taste The taste begins with a roasted malt and caramel flavors with some mild dark fruit flavors of a fig and raisin nature. The fruit and roast flavors remain relatively constant throughout the taste with the caramel gaining a bit of strength as the taste moves on. Along with the increase in the caramel, there is also an arrival of some light coffee and chocolate flavors. The chocolate remains very weak, but the coffee does grow a bit in intensity (although it still remains relatively light overall) with the mix of flavors left on the tongue at the end, leaving a semi-smooth and sweet roasted coffee flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is average as well. A bit of a lower carbonation level and a thicker and creamier body would have been better for the brews darker flavors, really accentuating them over the sweeter flavor of the brew better. Overall A decent porter overall and very drinkable but nothing really all that extraordinary.
