Bottle to glass, large rocky light brown head that diminished slowly,not much lacing,tawny cola color.A light malt aroma with a burnt note.This porter is rather light in body, thin and slick.The moderate sweet flavor with bitter finish was short lived. Really not much of a porter.

Botella. Color negro opaco. Espuma beige jabonosa. Baja formacin y retencin media. Aromas a chocolate, licor, avena, cafe, algn fruto rojo maduro....en boca cremosa fina y carbonatacion bastante viva... los mismos matices aunque el chocolate se hace mas presente, helado de chocolate, barquillo, los dulces dominan...final en el mismo rollo bastante suave, aunque mas a caf.en mi opinion segn la bebes va a menos...

Bottle: Dark brown body with a foamy khaki head that fades very quickly to a measly collar. Aroma has notes of semisweet chocolate, molasses, & roasted malt. Very light undercurrent of prune, steak sauce, & faint soy. Not bad, but different. Flavor is decisively more roasty with a strong malt body. Faint charcoal, bitter cocoa dust, mild anise, & a hint of coffee bean. Slight coffee bean, & some prune skin towards the finish that adds a light acrid hint of astringency. Thin-medium mouth feel. Decent.

ContemplateBeer (2040) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 27, 2015
Aroma: Espresso notes, raisins, dark cacao. Appearance: Almost oily black with a foamy tan head that settles into a skin. Flavor: Roast-centric, not a whole lot of chocolate; some citrusy notes buried underneath (something akin to Centennial); espresso finish. Palate: Full bodied, creamy texture, flat carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: A satisfying enough porter; fairly pleasing on all levels.

Slipstream (2519) - USA - FEB 18, 2015
I expected Dark Horse to make a fine porter and they didnt disappoint. Label has a very thirsty trout indeed on it - its a skeleton. Aroma is sweet, funky, and complex. The taste is equally impressive, smoky and spicy, but well balanced too. Really good.

SilverfoX (871) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2015
Strong malty aroma maybe a hint of licorice, pitch black body no head, rich and smooth with raisins, chocolate and licorice no hint of alcohol. better than i was expecting!

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - FEB 1, 2015
A medium brown body with a light brown head. Aroma was a nice mix of roasted malts that had a bit of smokiness to it. Semi-sweet chocolate and a touch of molasses. Flavor was well balanced. Roasted malts always pair well with chocolate malts. Chocolate malts seemed a bit retrained giving the roasted qualities a chance to shine. Slightly dry finish. Carbonation seemed a bit elevated, but not enough to hur the beer.
