Pours oil black with tan head. Nose bringing about notes of roast, semi-sweet cocoa, oak, coffee and water. Initial burst of dark coffee, roasted malts and barley with a finish of bitter coffee, semi-sweet chocolate and darkened malt. Very dark but somewhere in the finish is a slight acidity and sweetness. Tangy. Lemon maybe? Good dark porter. ROGUE (2215) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - APR 10, 2017
SLL Tasting. Pours a dark brown with a one finger tan head and very light lacing. Moderate aroma of chocolate, expresso and medium roasted malt. Tastes of medium roasted malt with a bit of char. Light chocolate and coffee. Slightly sweet. Mildly bitter and sour dough finish. Medium body and medium carbonation.

Delicious and flavorful Porter. Aroma was really good. Strong coffee and roasted malt. Pour was a nice deep rich dark brown/near black with a thin off white ring for a head. Taste was really good for such a low ABV. Strong coffee flavors in the front with a nice bitter roasted malt and hoppy finish. A little chocolate came out as it warmed. Good carbonation.

roasty and woody with pine hop and some chocolate with a bit of earth. how can you screw that up? they didn’t. refreshing foamy zing in the body and a moderate finish morphing cocoa, porter and hops. ryanscourt (1458) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 22, 2016
Dark brown/black aroma. Chocolate notes finish the body but woody hops actually dominate the palate.

12 oz bottle. Lots of good chewy awesomeness. Some hints of tar and molasses. Worth every penny. Voodoo (659) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2015
Pours an opaque black with a dense tan head which lingers......aroma of coffee.....taste is smooth beginning, chocolate early fading into coffee and slight bitterness and lingering coffee notes. bytemesis (8250) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 14, 2015
Tap. Pours deep reddish black, medium tan creamy head, dissipates slowly, solid lacing. Aroma is roasty with plenty of ashtray and burned malts. Flavor is heavy roast, hints of smoke, burned malts, light plus sweet and light plus bitter, some acidity from the roast. Medium body, smooth creamy mouthfeel. A bit too burned perhaps, but otherwise solid. stevoj (4966) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 12, 2015
