An ok beer on tap at Industry Robinson. Aroma was decent. Chocolate and roasted malt. A little light, but ok. Pour was a dark brown with a thin tan film for a head. Taste was good. I don’t see any mention of smoke in this beer but it had a distinctive smoky character with chocolate and just a hint of coffee in the finish. Mild carbonation. cheap (6089) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2017
Hope I didn't get this mixed up with Boulevard tough kitty, looks pretty close. Tap IPH. Not as dark as expected. Some cloying smell in this and it carries over to the first taste, such an influence. Yes, some sticky smoothness. The cloying sweetness, wants to take over but I ignore it. A little difficult for a sweet stout, needs some civility. Tolerable for a beer. jeremeh (12) - Yukon, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 17, 2017

Just-almost-black with a small dark tan head.
Dark, smoky chocolate and coffee aroma.
Taste is rich, dark, chocolate malt, smoke and ash.
A nice, dry, ashy bittering.
Good body.....a solid, excellent porter. weihenweizen (4127) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUL 16, 2017

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 (15760) - 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 (10673) - 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 (3452) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2017
Can. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts and light coffee. Flavor of roasted malts, chocolate, roasted coffee a touch of caramel and had a dry roasted finish. brownaler (707) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - SEP 20, 2016
Fresh roasted malt aroma. Rich coca body with a touch of milk. Finish is bubbly and clean.
