Sturdy porter and a snappy hat. Aroma is slightly underwhelming but the taste delivers with in your face roasted malt followed by faint notes of coffee and chocolate with a light body. Doesn’t have that cloying sweetness that some porters have; however, it’s not overly dry either. Very nice. pras (602) - Maryland, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Pours very dark brown, almost black. Aromas of dark roasted malt and some chocolate. Flavor follows through to the taste. Finishes mostly dry, with slight residual sweetness. In balance and tasty. Maverick34 (3248) - New York, USA - JAN 19, 2015

Smooth, drinkable, ans toasty, with minimal hop bitterness. Earthy and dark as night. Tasty and well done. hershiser2 (3480) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 16, 2015
$1.95 can from Wine Warehouse, CHO.
Pours dark brown, nearly black, with a tiny quickly disappearing brown head.
Smells of chocolate milk and coffee.
Taste: First sip: interesting and different! Chocolate, nuts, roasted chestnuts. Bitter coffee finish. Extra point in taste for being different, but not a favorite.

Deep cola-colored beer with a medium foamy dark beige head. Bitter roasted nose of unsweetened cocoa, dark coffee, and a bit of smokiness. Flavor is rich, but milder than the aroma would indicate. It’s definitely more on the bitter side with burnt chocolate and coffee that’s evaporated in the pot most prominent. It could use a bit of sweetness to counter balance it, but overall a pretty good beer. nickd717 (4707) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 28, 2014
12oz can from Chevy Chase Wine & Liquors. Darkest brown with a lacy light beige head. The aroma is nice and rich, loads of molasses and anise with dark baker’s chocolate and roasty malts. The flavor has mild sweetness yielding to an earthy, chocolatey, bitter finish. Thick and slick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Pretty solid beer. AKORN (220) - Virginia, USA - DEC 24, 2014
