Had a very odd aroma, like old dishwasher water and a hint of band-aid. The taste was fair enough, your typical porter. jtclockwork (16690) - , New Jersey, USA - NOV 25, 2012

Tree bark and soil nose, with bakers’ chocolate accents. Cola brown, floaties, medium tan head. Medium body, smooth. Roasty with subtle fudgy notes. Alcohol not noticeable. Nothing too unusual or spectacular, but an enjoyable porter. Damico (3147) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2012
Pours dark chocolate in color with a tan head which dissipates pretty quickly. The aroma is roasted malts and a bit of light smokiness. The flavor is light roasted malts with notes of the chocolate as well on a medium body with a pleasant creamy ending. factus (13) - - JAN 5, 2012
More like a lager than porter. Nothing too distinctive about the taste. Slightly malty/hoppy. Good value though.
