12oz bottle procured from the beer fridge at the lake. Pours a deep, dark brown color with a brown head. Aroma is nutty, roasty, chocolate. Medium on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, roasty, coffee, chocolate, with a bittersweet chocolate finish. Pretty tasty.

12oz bottle @ Casa Mia. Pours black with mahogany edges and a creamy light brown head. Loads of dark malt and semi-sweet chocolate, roasted coffee aromas and flavors. Full bodied with a smooth, creamy finish and lingering roasted coffee and bakers chocolate flavors that go on forever. Outstanding.

Tap at brewery in Marshall during glbtq. Black with small tan head. Roasty nose. Taste is strong roasted malt with some finishing bitterness. Medium thin body. Feels like a hybrid between a black ale and a porter.

Very nice and smooth porter, drinks easily and hits the taste buttons right away, not a surprise it has a high rating, it has everything a good porter should have.

12floz bottle (BOD/BBD?: 11.30.2016) that I bought as part of a mix-six for $9. Appears in my pint glass nearly black in color with a small amount of light brown head. Roasted malts are strong with dark chocolate, licorice, and touches of smoke. This leads to sharp bitter roast flavor and chalky heavy body. I find it too be overloaded in one way, so it won’t make my seek after porter list.

Bottle from Voldby. Pours pitch black with a brown head. Aroma and taste is roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, dark fruits, licorice. Full body. Soft carbonation. Oily texture. Bitter roasted finish.

3.4
Cunningham (8456) - Halden, NORWAY - MAY 21, 2017
Black color with a fine beige head. Ok lacing. Ok intensity in the aroma. Medium body and fizzy carbonation level (as usual for barrel aged beer). Easy to drink. Ok balance between sweetness and bitterness. Semi dry ending. Wood/oak, chocolate, roast and coffee in the flavor. Nice easy drinkable stout with a fine character. Just a bit to thin mouth feeling.
[Bottle from a trade with Sigmund]
