UPDATED: SEP 27, 2010 Nice dark color, cream color head. Rich chocolate taste but it doesn’t overpower. The flavor does not linger. Some beers leave a bitter after taste but not this one. Odde (308) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2010
standard fair porter. bitter, medium body, cereal, toast, hay. decent brew. Bigmmartin (603) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - APR 22, 2010
On nitro tap at Cock & Bull. AndyReynolds (1085) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 10, 2010
A nice, well rounded, porter served on a nitro tap. Not a ton of aroma or flavor, but does contains hints of roasted malt. Some burnt flavors stick out as well. Smooth palate and easy to drink.
Roasted malts, with notes of dark chocolate and a bit of metallic flavor. Mouth feel is creamy and smooth. The tasted is straight roasted malts with a tiny bit of coffee. Pretty good, but nothing special. joeneugs (6371) - Livermore, California, USA - MAR 9, 2009
Very dark brown with a thick, creamy head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, and licorice. Taste is heavy bodied with a toasted quality with chocolate, licorice, and some minor acidic coffee like bitterness. A very satisfying porter.

Poured from the tap.
Dark tan, nitro head with good retention. Moderate lacing on the glass.
Aroma is chocolate with a touch of hops.
Taste is dominated by coffee and chocolate. A hint of burnt or roasted flavor to the beer. Finally a short but clean finish. laguerita (111) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 10, 2008
love the nitro head, but just like a guiness it’s disappointingly thin once you gt through that. otherwise had great roasty flavor to it. NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 8, 2008
A very robust and tasty porter at the brewpub. Nitro gives it the characteristic nitro smoothness and head. tasty is roasty and full flavored. Plenty of hops to back it up. Very nice. esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 25, 2008
On tap at Cumberland brew pub. Brown with thin tan head. Aroma of caramel, honey and roasted malts. Taste of sweet malts, honey, caramel and light chocolate. Smoot with a sweet finish. Not a bad effort. 502Che (999) - @, CAMBODIA - MAR 15, 2008
On tap at the brewpub. Nice and darkly rich coloring but not so great of a head (small and settling) - this brewpub tends to pour beers intentionally without heads though. Smells of roasted malts, molasses, raisins, and a hint of hops. Smooth on the palate with a heavy body but still a somewhat light feel. The flavor was by far the best quality, it really blew me away. It has by far the most hoppy flavor of any porter I have had, and the hops work really well with the typical porter flavors (which I wouldn’t have expected). Great and unique balance. Overall: best cumberland brew in my opinion.
