Nice label, pours black with small head, light palate dark beer, slightly bubbly mouthfeel, nice earthy porter, not so creamy but I don't mind. I'll have another thanks.

Bottle at the cabin in New Hampshire. Pours clear, deep brown with a creamy, tan head. The nose holds dark raspberry, chocolate, light roast. Lightly sweet flavour with hints of metal, ashy bitterness, faint chocolate. Light bodied with average carbonation. Dry and ashy on the finish, with bitter scorched earth, more metallic notes, subtle tangy berries, dry milk chocolate. Mediocre. AStoutFan (26) - Geneva, New York, USA - AUG 28, 2015
I found it a little bitter for how it is advertised. Still mild for a porter. Small tan head. Looks like a root beer in the glass. Nothing special and that’s to be expected for the wordiness of the description. sudomorph (1150) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 21, 2015
12oz bottle. Pours a clear, deep caramel brown with a half finger, khaki head that thins to a ring. Aroma has mild, creamy notes of roasted malts, dark chocolate, caramel, and a hint of coffee. Taste is balanced. Caramel, roasted malts, and an roasty, espresso finish. Low-medium body and carbonation. Clean in the mouth. Overall an easy drinking brew. Medium caramel, dark chocolate, roasted malts. KyotoLefty (10194) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 30, 2014
Draught at the brewpub. Roasty, coffee nose, wood, rather stout-like roastiness. Dark brown and lacy. Light body. Very roasty, with coffee. Decent and easy drinking.

Draft at Essex. Dark Brown black pour with a thin milk chocolate head. Nose is sweet chocolate and dark malt. Taste is the same. drowland (8629) - Georgia, USA - JAN 6, 2014
1/6/14. 12oz bottle thanks to JBVatkeens! Go Noles! Black pour with a small khaki head that fades to a frothy ring and doesn’t lace. Nice aroma, creamy chocolate, light roast, mild coffee, some bready maltiness - really digging it. Good but somewhat disappointing flavor. Light coffee, cream, and chocolate, a little dusty, a hint of metal, too watery in taste. Surprisingly nice thick, slick mouthfeel, despite the flavor. Enjoyed this one, all in all.

12oz bottle, a nice cream porter with a rich taste. Hints of coffee and nice aroma.

Good roasted chocolate aroma. Dark brown appearance with a nice head and lacing. Flavor was of sweet chocolate malt and coffee. Sorta thick, with slight bitterness at end. jb (3211) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 3, 2013
Growler at a work picnic. I liked it. Rich, robust, smoky, roasted notes. A very full bodied porter, though with cream in the name, I expected a creamier feel to it. Nice.
