I think this is Cooperstown Brewing Company’s best offering. It’s a pleasant coffee color with a sweet malty aroma. It’s a smooth sipper with a balanced body, not too heavy. A porter that can serve as a session beer. It begs to be paired with burgers and dogs or a cheap steak. xelabeer (7) - GUATEMALA - JUN 16, 2012 does not count
Had a nice aroma with chocolate malt shining through. Decent head and carbonation, but tasting it seemed a bit light and also maybe a slight sanitizer type taste. jbeatty (1256) - New York, USA - JUN 14, 2012
Bottle, 06/14/2012. Pours deep, rich brown, beige head. Aroma of lightly roasted chocolate malts, nutty, touch of darker coffee. Taste has light chocolate, maybe some cola notes, slight ash and roast, mild bitterness. Light body from this bottle, wishing for more depth. Ok.

My wife brought this one back from a trip to Rochester. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with orange highlights and a huge foamy tan head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was lightly roasty and woody with hints of anise and coffee. The flavor was dry, bitter, roasty and had notes of coffee and anise. Medium finish and body. Not really my style. vmilaxer29 (412) - Virginia, USA - FEB 29, 2012
Pours dark brown, very light, fizzy head. Very lively CO2 makes it almost like a soda. Aroma hints of caramel and bread, but not very distinctive. Not a great beer, but ok to try.
Eructoblaster (4330) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 23, 2012
Bottle - 12oz. Pours a black opaque body with a huge beige foamy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with roasted cereals and some coffeeish hints. Taste is dominated by roastiness. Some oaky notes are also noticeable. Alcohol is well hidden. Ends with a sharp bitter/roasty finish. Solid Porter, not for lager people. BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JAN 16, 2012
Bottle. Poured a dark brown with a tan head. Aromas of roast and coffee. The flavor found roast, chocolate, and a light coffee backing. Light to medium body. BillKismet (4103) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 20, 2011
Raven-colored with ruby highlights and a soft, poofy beige head.Enjoyable rough, roasty black patent nose, full of chilled air heated by a burst of charcoal. Old world roasty porter flavor--again, it’s full of charcoal, black patent and some ash. A beer that is everything a benchwarmer deserves. Enjoyable. jcwattsrugger (12517) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - DEC 12, 2011
12oz bottle-shared by hbmason-pours a tan head and mahogany color. Aroma is some off astringency, medium malt. Taste is medium/dark malt-peat/caramel, secondary astringent. Bif (2312) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - OCT 7, 2011
Bottle- Pours a dark brown with a good tan head that fades slowly to nice lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate and hint of dark fruit. Mild flavor of roasted malt, dark chocolate hint of coffee. Has a mellow bitterness and a dry finish. Medium body, smooth and creamy. Very well balanced. No hint of the 6.3% ABV. Easy drinker, very enjoyable. A solid English pale ale. Another good beer from a small beer crafter.
