ben4321 (6665) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 12/23/11

Aroma: The nose is mostly roasted malts, with hints of chocolate, caramel, toast, and dark fruit
Appearance: It pours a dark brown-black color with a foamy beige head that dissipates quickly
Flavor: Heavily malty taste, with roasted and chocolate flavors, light coffee and toast, light bitterness
Palate: Medium body, decent mouthfeel, medium-heavy carbonation, with a slightly dry and slightly metallic finish
Overall Impression: I thought this was a fairly decent porter, but it wasn’t a standout. The flavors progress a bit as it warms, and some more character seems to rise. This is a solid Porter, but again, it is still nothing particularly great or memorable.

Dark with a large tan head. Aroma is coffee, roasted coffee, cocoa, and a bit of sweet malt. Full body. Flavor has a decent helping of roast malt, but not quite stout like, dry-roast coffee, cocoa, light sweet brown sugar. Finish is a bit on the dry side. The fairly big body on this porter makes up a bit for its lack of, for lack of a better word, creativity. Still, it’s a good beer and easily something I would drink again.

Newer availability at Chuck’s: pours cloudy dark mahogany. biscuit, brown sugar, roasted malts, hint of coffee on the nose. subtle burnt toast, more sweet malts with a drying bitterness that lingers through the finish. nice carbonation, rather smooth and drinkable. nice sessionable beer.

emeinz (220) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 11, 2011
bottle to glass. Aroma of sweet roasty malts. black color with light tan head. slight bitterness. An easy drinking porter. Great for a rainy day.

cheap (6006) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2011
Big tuff beer. Pour is nice and dark, almost brown near black. Taste is roasty dark beer enjoyment. could have a few more manners but comes across rather nicely. Yes, seems like a higher alky stout. Not bad overall, a medium fine beer drinken experience. Ceramy at times. Some roasted bitterness on the finish.

IrishBoy (4228) - Bakersfield, California, USA - OCT 21, 2011
Bomber From Utah State Liquor Store #18 Cedar City. Nose is caramel with a hint of coffee and roastiness. Clear rusty brown with a huge beige head that laces heavily. Flavor is caramel and hints of nuts and coffee. Good light porter; I could drink lots of this one if it was local.

Nuffield (4189) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 30, 2011
Roasted and chocolate, with a rounded and full flavor profile that ends in an oddly bitter and somewhat disappointing finish. Moderate porter palate, in part to be expected. Bottle.

dmac (6429) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - SEP 30, 2011
22oz bomber from EZ. poured a thinner black body under a large bubbly super light beige head. Aroma of chocolate milk lite, lactose, chocolate, grains and dust. Body is thinner and the carboantion is on the strong side with a quick fading aftertaste. Flavor is the same as the aroma with a touch more roastiness then the aroma. Decent beer but not in love with the palate on this one.

Darkover (1542) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 28, 2011
Dark red/brown color with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malts. Taste is lightly sweet, medium body, soft carbonation, slick feel. Good.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 7, 2011
22oz bottle. Almost completely opaque dark red color, minimal light tan head. Mild hop, some chocolate aroma. Mostly a bit watered down, it seems. Carbonation is prominent. Very light sweetness. Light bitter. Kind of a boring porter.
