12 oz. can from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Looks like a stout. A lot of roast and toast in the aroma. First sip is sweet lactic with yeast and dark malts. Roast and brown sugar with milk chocolate. This is tasty stuff and so easy to drink. Very pleasant. UNCCTF (578) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - JAN 7, 2017
12oz can. Slightly translucent black with an off-white head. Aroma is pretty bland and nondescript. Some chocolate notes in the flavor. Maybe it’d be better if I hadn’t just had a REALLY good pint of an imperial stout, but this isn’t good. Got this in a sampler pack as a Christmas present; glad I didn’t pay for it. mike5326 (1745) - virginia beach, Virginia, USA - OCT 19, 2016

An aroma of plum and malt, pours a clear chestnut color with a thin tan head. A taste of plum and smoked malt, watery body with a bitter plum finish.

12 oz. can. Poured black, foamy, lasting tan head. Aroma was slight chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, charred wood. Taste was sweet, light coffee, light roasted malt, watery. Suttree (6361) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 6, 2016
This was basically to fill out a mix-six (and get a tick, of course). It wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t that good, either. Pretty thin. You can do better than this. SpringsLicker (3617) - Tennessee, USA - APR 23, 2016
Almost black pour with a tan head. Garnet at the edges under strong light.
The aroma is nutty, dusty earth. Burnt coffee.
The flavor is lightly sweet, some nuttiness. mocha. No hop bitterness or flavor.
Smooth, creamy. Other than that there are a lot of better stouts readily available. Aurelius (5295) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 21, 2016
Interesting can, inky brew, tan head. Powdery, nutty, caramel toffee aroma - fairly sweet. Tangy, sweet, earthy, sorta stale tasting, faint roast. Crisp carbonation, cigarette-y aftertaste. Drinkable, underwhelming. Thanks to PorterPounder. chinchill (4940) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 26, 2015
12 oz can served in a Porter Bar goblet. 5.8% ABV and brewed in NY indicated on the can.
A moderately vigorous pour raised a large, fluffy tan head but this soon reduced to a thin top coat.
Aroma: overly earthy and dank (due to English hops?).
Flavor: ~ on style with more chocolate than toffee and more toffee than coffee. The aftertaste is the best aspect of this stout.
Feel: very smooth with lively carbonation that works well.
