UPDATED: OCT 4, 2011 Bottle courtesy of OrlGamecock, thanks. Nice dark black pour with a decent tan head. Rich and fullbodied, very robust, chocolate and roasty. Nicely balanced brew, enjoyed it and will have to find again. PhillyBeer2112 (2850) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - SEP 17, 2010
Nice beer, really big on the chocolate which was all over the nose, and also in the flavor but there complemented with a light roastiness. Malts are smooth and rounded, not too sweet, with actually a semi-dry chocolate finish. redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 16, 2010
Sweet chocolate and coffee on the nose. Pours black with a thin tan head. Bitter chocolate with molasses and roasted malts, bitter coffee as well. Nice! nickd717 (4682) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 15, 2010
Bomber thanks to beermeX2 on BA. Pours black in color with a nicely formed lacey tan head that lasts. Great roasty and chocolatey aroma with hints of dark chocolate. The flavor is also excellent. Better than some vintages of Sexual Chocolate even. Roast, chocolate, dark chocolate, and even some molasses and anise. Medium-full bodied with a smooth silky mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Really excellent overall. Better than I expected.

Pour thanks to daknole. Brown with a khaki head. Aromas of campfire smoke, chocolate, coffee. Flavor shows the same and is reinforced with some nice roasted malt notes. Overall body is moderate to full, moderately sweet and finishes with a light roasted bitterness. zizzybalubba (1868) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - SEP 10, 2010
22 oz. bottle purchased from Foothills. Dark black pour with a healthy tan head. Aroma of smoky malts, roasted espresso, walnuts, and hints of dark fruit. Huge dark coffee flavors jump out with noticeable smoke and bitter chocolate. The finish is lingering but there is little, if any, detectable alcohol warmth. This is really quite fantastic. changeup45 (1731) - Lake Mary, Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Bottle picked up at the brewpub. Strong cocoa in the nose with cream, woody/smoke notes, and toffee. A dark fruit presence sneaks in after the fact. Pours dark; looks black with some amber coming through, and a thick fluffy head. This is a very smooth drinking Porter, creamy, but also assertive. Chocolate is very prominent in the flavor which isn’t surprising following the aroma. Dark fruit mixes in with roasty coffee, light bitterness, and some char in the finish. Porters typically aren’t one of my favorite styles but this is good stuff. Probably one of the best Porters I’ve had. OldGrowth (3474) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - SEP 6, 2010
bottle, from Sam’s Quik Stop. Good aroma, sweet, malty. Nutty, yeasty, chocolate, marshmallow, little ash, got caramel as it warmed. Dark orangy brown color, small head, little to no lace. I poured rather slow though. Sweet bitter flavor. Thick body, creamy oily mouthfeel, bitter sweet finish. Very nice brew, certainly met expectations. Flavor rocked with rich malty flavor, lots of chocolate, nice sweet streak about it, flavor had nice transition as it warmed, kept getting sweeter, Love the Foothills.... daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 5, 2010
