(X-mas 05) This poured a very large tan head that was thick and chewy and did not die. Later when I poured in the end of the bottle, it made a little hole in the head and raised it all on top of the new expanding head. Very good. Oh, it also had a nice sweet malt aroma. Nice creamy mouthfeel with a sweet and fruity flavor. Very good.
12oz bottle. Came from one of those beers of the month club boxes that my employer signed me up for. Poured a dark brown, cola color with a medium sized tan head. Aroma was lots of roasted malts, some light nutty notes. Light bitterness. Touch of dry coffee roast. Touch of creamy character on the finish. bnokk (535) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 21, 2016

From a 12 oz bottle. Pours a dark cola brown with a tan head. Malty nose. Flavors of nuts, toast and a hint of licorice. Bitter roast finish. generallee08 (772) - New York, USA - JUN 25, 2014
The body has a dark black look with a very dark reddish brown hue when held up to light. On top is a tan colored foamy head. It slowly fades down to a thin wisp covering that makes some slick lacing. Its aroma has dark bready notes with some dark roasted and chocolaty barley malt. Hop notes are very mild and add a very light herbal quality to the overall aroma. There is a dark bready base with lots of dry, roasted, toasted and chocolaty maltiness. There is a very mild toffee like sweetness underneath that I really like. Hop flavor is well balanced for the style and adds plenty of dry herbal notes to the mix. It finishes very dry with dark chocolaty, toasted and very light coffee notes. The palate has strong medium body with a smooth texture and mellow carbonation.

Pours dark brown with an aroma of roasted malt, nuts, and coffee. Great flavor with nuts, and roasted malt with hint of chocolate upfront and a solid coffee finish. Creamy body. Very nice. j12601 (12000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JAN 23, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear cola brown with a medium to thick sized beige head. Sweet plum and pineapple paper. Medium bodied, very sweet and full of paper. Roast and weird infected sweetness. Quite unpleasant and not so tasty. bigguns22 (798) - Maryland, USA - JAN 23, 2013
Dark brown with a med tan head. Aroma is coffee and a touch sour. Flavor is dry,coffee and bitter. Shanebrews (293) - Virginia, USA - NOV 25, 2012
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.
