Thanks to daknole or hellbilly for this one. Tea colored pour with a fleeting beige head. Smells and tastes of roasted coffee, plums, and sweet malts. Crisp on the palate. Really nice.
Pours a deep brownish black from the bottle with fluffy tan head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma of mild chocolate notes, earthy hops, a hint of caramel and slight soy oxidation. Taste follows, nice chocolate, light earth, oxidation is covered by all the malty sweetness. A good porter. Bill Becker (1773) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - NOV 3, 2017

I got this bottle in a trade with Grizzly Adams. Thanks Cole!
It pours a dark brown with close to a 2finger head of off white foam. A few minutes in and the head retention is very good and there's some spotty lacing.
The smell has notes of coffee, roasted malt, and milk.
The taste has coffee and a roasted/burnt malt flavour up front with some milky flavour in the background. The roasted malt is quite bitter but works well with the semi sweetness of that milky flavour. It finishes very dry, from the roasted malt, and leaves a nice lingering aftertaste. Nice Porter with a medium mouthfeel and fairly low carbonation. I'm certainly glad I got to try it.

12 ounce bottle at home out of sampler 12 pack. No head when poured. Smell the malt. Kind of leathery aroma. Very deep brown in color. Taste a little chocolate, nuts, and is roasty in flavor. So smooth on the palate. Overall I like this and I considerer this a light winter warmer. Cheers! Grumbo (3967) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2017

Bottle in MV - picked up in CT. Pours rich brown with a creamy, tan head. Nice roasted malt aroma, with ample chocolate, some burnt toast. Medium sweet flavour with nice, gooey chocolate character, some raisins, brown bread, fudge, subtle burnt earth bitterness. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Pretty good balance in the finish, with nice chocolatey depth, further roast, cocoa, soft ash, dried berries. Great porter overall.
