Aroma of chocolate malt. Dark brown colour with a rich creamy head. Taste of chocolate and malt. A watery finish. orangenblu62 (39) - Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Excellent from the pour. Dark brew with a light head. Surprisingly light (doesn’t leave you bloated) for being so dark. Sweet smooth taste with a hint of coffee. Moderate APV so that first sip doesn’t sting like some. A very tasty porter. fishonmyplane (505) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - MAR 27, 2014
A classic British porter - nothing too crazy, very moderate ABV. The malt backbone has roasted, toasted, and toffee flavors. A little on the sweet side. Tasty and complex. cafgen (209) - California, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, vanilla and roasted. Flavor is roasted in the end with a more present coffee flavor in the begining and somewhat chocolate. A favorite one.

22oz bottle pours dark brown with light edges, 1 finger head. Nose is coffee bean, almond, nutty, vanilla. Taste is french vanilla coffee, roasty almond, vanilla bean, earthy. Finish is mildly bitter roasty coffee, vanilla, nuts. coachd (836) - Missouri, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Pours a great dark brown color with a tremendous amount of tan foam. Smells very light and malty, not a lot of hops going on in the aroma. Taste is also light. Coffee with cream, malt and a bit of spice at the end. Great palate, velvety and rich with a good aftertaste. Very drinkable but a bit basic. Not what I have come to expect from FW. flying_pig (1571) - SCOTLAND - MAR 18, 2014
650ml Bottle from Brewdog Glasgow (£11, 5.8%):dutch23mp (317) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Slightly sweet with some light coffee & some chocolate coming through on top of some dark malts and a sugar base. The aroma seemed like a creamy one and was very enjoyable on the nose.
Dark brown to black a 1.5cm, foamy, light brown head that settles as a nice, thick lacing after a minute.
Dark malts & faint coffee with some sweetness from some caramel malts. There is a very faint hop bitterness to the beer that accompanies the chocolate and nutty taste of this one, & the beer is rounded off with some faint, background spice at the end.
Ridiculously smooth and creamy with a medium body and light medium carbonation on top of that. The drink proved a fast and easy on to finish with a lot of flavour on the palate and some touches of smoke along with a dry finish helps this one to end perfectly.
Such a good beer & more than worth the steep price with an amazing taste & great mouthfeel. A pleasure to drink from the start & refreshingly enjoyable given the fact the beer was a good session offering with the alcohol content remaining fairly low, particularly for an American craft beer.
Beautiful pour with a creamy head. Robust aroma and seems to have a strong hint of chocolate Does not seem to be as heavy as other porters which I prefer. Nice little after taste on the palate. Definitely a good brew I can see why it has some nice ratings DrinkinWell (389) - - MAR 8, 2014
Pours a very dark brown, even black, with off white head and average lacing. The beer is very creamy, with aromas of coffee and chocolate. Taste like roasted coffee beans , caramel, vanilla, and chocolate. An exceptional beer from Firestone Walker. One of the best porters I’ve had.
