Draft at Liquor Express. Pours Coca Cola brown with an inch of khaki foam. This one takes a while to settle. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Big caramel malts on the nose. Lots of creamy caramel malt on the tongue. Very quaffable and easy to drink. Finished clean. Really nice one to session. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cybercat (5400) - Georgia, USA - JUN 22, 2016
Pours coffee brown with a thick and rather persistent tan head. Aroma features chocolate, roast malt, caramel, toffee and subtle molasses notes, more stout-like than porter-like. Flavor delivers semi-sweet chocolate, roast malt, charred hops, toffee, caramel and molasses notes. This is YUUUUUGE! Mouthfeel offers firm, viscous body and good fizz. Barkin’ good!

22 ounce bottle purchased at the brewery. Pours a rich, opaque brown with a small tan head that lingers nicely. Aroma is roasty malt and dark chocolate. Taste follows the aroma, with a slight emphasis on the chocolate. Flavor opens up as the beer warms up. A solid porter

Poured from a bomber into a pint glass. The appearance is a black color with a very small brown head. The aroma is a simple mix of caramel and roasted malt, excellent smell. The taste matches the aroma. A very good porter.

750ml bottle. 4/12/16 bottle date. Appearance: Black, opaque, with dark ruby tint and a moderate khaki head that dissipated quickly. Aroma: Dark roasted coffee and dark chocolate upfront, with a touch of toffee. Coffee and chocolate aromas are stronger than most in this style. Taste: Dark roasted malt dominates, with a strong coffee bean and dark chocolate flavor. Light caramel and toffee in the background. Bitterness is moderate, just enough to balance the maltiness. Mouthfeel: Medium body with light viscosity, and a low carbonation. Finish: Dry, with dark roast and chocolate prominent and touch of astringency. Overall: Good robust Porter, heavier on the roast/coffee character than most other versions. Thankfully, the roast character isn’t overly astringent. Caramel and toffee undertones balance out the sharp and bitter roast.

22oz bottle. Pours black with a small creamy brown head. Roasty aroma of chocolate and coffee. Mildly sweet with a heavy roasted chocolate malt character with a bit of caramel. Medium-to-full bodied with a roasted malt finish. Very good.
