On tap at Capitol City, Downtown location in July 2006. Reddish colour. Plenty of bitter coffee in the aroma and flavour. Rather light body. Quite strong hop presence. More toasty than roasty. Pleasant enough but not that robust - could use a little more depth and body.

Draft. Dark brown color, thin tan lacing. Mild roasty and coffee aroma. Mild sweet taste, with some dark fruit flavor coming through at the end. Medium body, ave carbonation. For me an average porter overall. tcane7 (1674) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2013

Draft. Poured a very dark brown with slight mahogany hues. Aroma of cocoa and coffee notes. Medium light sweetness. Creamy texture. Pretty good porter. Huhzubendah (3775) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 7, 2012
On draft at Capitol City Brewing Co. in Virginia.
The beer is dark brown with a tan head that leaves ample lacing on the glass. Malt, roast, and chocolate are the main forces at work here. Pretty good. Decent balance. The main issue I have this brew is the body, which is thin and watery. Overall, this was one of the more enjoyable beers I have had from this brewery.

Tap at the Shirlington location. Dark pour but it doesn’t look overly dense. Spotty head. Roasted malts and some earthiness. Neither bitter nor sweet. Decent. ttoadee (1659) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 1, 2012
Black pour, tan head. Chocolate milkshake on the nose and across the tongue. Hops dry finish to a nice lingering smokiness. VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2012
On tap at brewpub. Reddish black with a short-lasting beige head. Tastes like ash, roast and milk chocolate. Coffee bitterness. Medium bodied. Way too carbonated. A disappointment. yespr (48876) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2012
