On tap at Drake’s Barrelhouse. The pour is lovely; black with a creamy tan head. Aroma is rich roasted malt and chocolate. Dry bitter flavor with a smooth velvety finish. A very good porter all around.
Black with a tall tan head. Coffee notes, cocoa, light earthy hops. Finish is bittersweet chocolate and dry. Medium bodied. A sharp, tasty porter. mcberko (19833) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 27, 2017
On tap at Drake’s Barrel Room, pours a deep dark brown / black with a small beige head. Aroma brings out toasted malt and some oaty heartiness. Flavour is very heart and robust, with lots of toasted malt, oats and lovely roasted barley. About everything I could want in a porter. Excellent. simontomlinson (673) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2017

Porter przywieziony prosto z USA. Bardzo ładny, ciemnobrązowy kolor i całkiem spora, beżowa, równa piana. Aromat palonych słodów i czekolady. W smaku pełne, treściwe. Sporo czekolady, pralinek i trochę kawy. Bardzo gładkie, aksamitne. Smaczne piwo! rouhlas (3984) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - FEB 24, 2017

Pours black with a cappuccino colored head, very stable. Aroma is caramel, earth, tea, nuttiness. Not as much of a pop to it as I wanted... Nuts and coffee, a slight bittersweetness. Decent but nothing special here. MelvinKalksma (1826) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 9, 2017
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, chocolate, mocha, roasted malts and coffee.
Opaque black beer with a slight/medium brown/dark brown head.
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, chocolate and mocha; ends slightly bitter and dry with bread, roasted malts and coffee.
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. What a great beer and even more so for its abv. Starts rather sweet and ends with mellow, but still distinct, coffee. Simply love these flavours.
