Poured into a perfect pint. Bottle.
5.0 A: Medium brown color. Two and a half fingers of pillowy tan head. Retention is very, very good and glass covering lacing is left. Been a while since I’ve seen an appearance this good.
3.75 S: Cocoa powder is the most plentiful of smells. Dry toastiness with moderate roast. Caramel in layers with hints of molasses.
3.5 T: Taste is good too, but not as good as the nose. Toasty with cocoa powder, caramel. Basically like the nose, but less pronounced.
3.0 M: Lighter body. Good moderate carbonation. Lacking creaminess but otherwise fine.
3.5 D: Decent beer. Worth a try.

Bottle thanks to NeoHippie2. Pours inky black with large spongy beige head, mocha aroma, medium carbonation, thin body, lightly bitter coffee beans taste, slight chocolaty sweetness, medium bitter mocha finish. A bit watery but tasty. ContemplateBeer (2097) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 19, 2015
12 oz. bottle split three way; from Liquor Barn (Middletown Commons). Aroma: Coffee with cream; rich chocolate presence. Pleasant and lighter than I remember. Appearance: Black pour with a sticky tan head that sticks around. Flavor: Coffee and cream up front with more chocolate towards the lingering finish, which dries out pretty well. Palate: Light body, slick texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: I could get into this; a lighter, but flavorful take on the style. bnokk (548) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 31, 2015
APPEARANCE ? appears black until held to the light, then very dark brown becomes apparent.
NOSE ? the roastiness of the brew comes through in the first whiff. Very appetizing.
FLAVOR ? as the beer warms, the roastiness of the porter comes through. Very deep flavors for a porter, yet there?s smooth finish to look forward to. Capa (3630) - DC, Washington DC, USA - APR 17, 2015
Black with a tall tan head. Lovely roasted malt and coffee notes up front followed by earth and a hint of fruit. Full flavored. Hearty and delicious porter.

Tailspin ale fest. Has a really intense coco nib flavor. Good but a little over powering. kaser (6430) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Black pour from draft at flat 12. Cocoa and dry. Coffee. Malts and slight hops. Pretty tasty tnkw01 (1857) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 18, 2014
Tap. A really nice porter. Dark brown with a medium head. Aroma is notes of chocolate and coffee with a whiff of fruit. Taste is chocolate rum cake. Nice. Chudwick (3439) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - DEC 8, 2014
So I was walking down the beer aisle at Kroger and saw this as a part of the BYO 6-packs. I reached out for it and five others. The mind wants what the mind wants. This habit of rating beers has got a hold on me. Coffee nose. It’s a porter, folks. drfabulous (8831) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - NOV 3, 2014
12 ounce brought back from my wife who got it from Indy marathon. Black pour with big notes of chocolate. A bit creamy. Nice.
