markwise (5450) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 13, 2016
On draft at the CCB Brewpub. Pours a deep, dark brown with a tan head. Nose is roast, earth, chocolate, and a nice bitterness that blends coffee bitterness with some mild citrus. Flavor is similar with roast, earth, chocolate, and some citrusy hops. Medium to full in body and very nice overall. MrHangover (4693) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2016
Draft @ Brewpub. Pours a very dark ruby red beer with a nice creamy tanned head on top. Aroma roasted nuts and malts, slight touch of caramel. Flavor is nice, subtle, roasty, and has a rich chocolate bittersweet aftertaste. Perfectly balanced, silky mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very nice. jcartamdg (3539) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2016

Draft at source. A ton of cocoa and chocolate in the nose. Dark brown pour. Small off white head. A ton of chocolate in the flavor. Pretty decadent but enough bitterness to balance. Smooth, quench able, nice.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours a dark brown color with a reddish hue and topped by a small tan colored head of foam. The head shows nice retention and slowly fades leaving splotches of lace behind. The aroma shows notes of dark chocolate, roasted malts, toasted caramel, and hop bitterness on the back end. The flavor follows suit with ample amounts of bitter dark chocolate, dark roasted malts, and toasted caramel. The piney hops add ample bitterness on the backend and keeps things in balance. Medium bodied with good carbonation that leads to a roasty chocolate finish. This is a really tasty robust Porter and easy to see why they won gold at the U.S. open beer championships. Great beer. sebletitje (10547) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 11, 2015
Draft @ CCB Brewpub.
Noire, col crémeux café au lait.
Arôme est fort centré sur le malté, belle note de grillé, malt caramel, fruité noir perce en rétro-nasal avec une belle pointe de chocolaté.
Plais est grillé assez présent et prenant, note de réglisse, poudre de cacao.
Fini sec avec qcq éléments houblonnés qui apportent une fine amertume anglaise. Pointe de noisette sur la fin, fruité noir et cette impression perdurante d’anisé, fini poudreux. PorterPounder (8400) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 2, 2015
Tampa, FL - on tap at the brewpub. Deep dark purplish - brown pour with a sticky mocha colored head, nice sticky lacing. Tobacco, coffee and topsoil in the aroma. Bold flavor, lots of coffee, tobacco, brown sugar and a hint of bittersweet chocolate. Thickish, rich mouthfeel. burg326 (5662) - Florida, USA - APR 13, 2015
Poured a dark brown almost black color with aromas of earth, cocoa, some roast and light bitter black coffee. Flavors matched the aromas Roman decent overall not how much I could do in one sitting but one glass was good enough. 3fourths (9381) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 9, 2015
UPDATED: APR 15, 2015 Cask. Deep black and lightly opaque with a lasting, fine tan colored head. Enjoyably malty aroma shows well the roast core, there’s a natural dark chocolate cocoa quality that seems to shape-shift into something like fresh brewed coffee. Aroma hops and esters are minimal. Body is medium, it’s moderately sweet with medium to low bitterness, carbonation is fine and texture is silky and soft. Rich, savory, clean and expressive. Cask certainly adds a few points to CCB beer, from what I tried while in town.
