Can. Chocolate malt, ash, and dry orange peel aroma. Very dark brown with moderate brown head - nice lacing. Lightly sweet chocolate malt, and moderately bitter ash, hay, and orange peel flavor. Nice body. Very good. bhensonb (15190) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 1, 2017
Tap at Finn & Porter in the Embassy Suites Convention Center in D. C. Pours dark brown with a darkish tan head. Aroma of chocolate and not excessively toasty dark malt. Med + body. Flavor is very nice. Good chocolate and the malt is right where a porter should have it. This is what I like in the style, and do not frequently get. Good stuff. phaleslu (10247) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 26, 2017
22 oz. bottle from seeswo - thanks, Chris! 2012 vintage. Uh, thanks? Pours a deep, dark, opaque coffee brown with a finger of dark tan head that settles into a lighter tan ring and a wee bit of film. Looks great. Showing oxidation, along with chocolate, light roast, earth, tobacco, toasted sugars, and coffee. Light-medium bodied, albeit thinned over time, with a dry, roasty mouthfeel. A little oxidized on the palate, with a hint of umami. Not bad for the age, actually. But would obviously be better fresh. Beerdedone (3408) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2017

12 oz can poured. Huge thanks to Eugene for picking me up a DC tick. Old to the shelf, but fresh to me. Pours a near black with an active tan fizz head. Robust toasty aroma. Flavor is chocolatel up front. Solid roasted character. Has a slight burnt feel to it. Hot finish. Toasty malt. Unique stoutish porter here. I enjoyed this.
