Intrigued enough by the peanut butter version of this, I figured I better try the regular version.
This was poured into an English pint glass.
The appearance was a two finger off white to tan foamy head that rose above the glass in a rocky sort of way. It dissipated within about a minute. Light lacing was in and around the glass.
The smell sounded off with a subtle roast breaking through a robust cocoa flavor. Light bitter coffee bean melds into the aroma.
The taste moderately lingered between roasty coffee and cocoa beans.
On the palate, this one has a nice medium bodied feel letting the robust lay it down cold on my tongue.
Overall, I’d say this was a good porter that I would have again. gregwilsonstl (2452) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 30, 2015

Keg pour at NH Brewfest. Appearance is opaque black pour, beige ring of head, decent lacing. Aroma is roasted malt. Taste is a little smoky, with some bitterness, and sweet chocolate. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with thin texture, finish is nice mix of balanced bitter and sweet. Overall, solid porter all around. Generally, I like a porter to have a little heavier body/texture, but there is something nice about having a full flavored beer that isn’t quite as heavy. floydslip (392) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 6, 2015
Dark cola - colored beer with a billowing dark beige head that subsides quicker than expected. Nose of brown sugar, medium coffee grounds, and vinegar. Flavor is rich with cocoa powder, mocha, and burnt toast that leaves a residual charred bitterness on the tongue. Good beer.

Beer of month club. Pours a dark brown with big foam head from a can. Nose is somewhat smoky with some coffee notes. Taste is roasted malt, a lot of smokiness, some bitterness, and a metallic like taste mixed in (kinda weird). Still, a solid porter - more bitter than a typical one.
