SanfordBrewer (1528) - Sanford, Florida, USA - NOV 23, 2010
Opaque mohagany, thin beige head, creamy full body, medium carbonation.

Aroma: semi-sweet chocolate, stale coffee, bready fruity yeast esters.

Taste: semi-sweet chocolate, dark roasted malt, stale coffee, musty yeast esters, and a hint of charred malt.

Perfect baltic porter! Great complex malt flavors. Balanced, but malt focused. Full and flavorful with a lot of dark malt character, but not the charr or astringency of RIS.

One of the best porters I’ve had. I went to another site and they were like oh I poured at 44 degrees and into a fucking blah blah blah. It’s a GOOD FUCKING BEER! That’s all that matters, right!

Had on nitro at the Brewery. Pours dark with a nice full head. Aroma is of a standard chocolate porter. Tastes great, very smooth.

Pours pitch black with a large tan head. Smells chocolatey with a hint of roast. Taste is chocolate with roast and a hint of coffee. Medium-bodied with smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Cigar City Puppy’s Breath Robust Porter finishes with a lingering chocolate note.

Cybercat (5393) - 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!

Beeroda.hu Tasting Session @ Budapest. Dark brown color, creamy beige head. Light toasted aroma. Light to medium-bodied. Milky, toasted, licorice, sweetish flavor. Quite simple. Should try without nitro.

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.
