Like you’d expect, this pours very dark and has a moderate head. It has a nice roasted smell to it, which is very inviting. Very good taste, with notes of coffee and unsweetened chocolate. Really good beer.

Originally reviewed: 12/7/08. Had this at the Brewery itself with my dinner. This was in the "kettle" last month when I toured the brewery, so I thought I’d give it a try. Came out a dark jet-black with some ruby to the edges. Capped off by a pretty weak tan head that didn’t last long. Some decent lacing, but nothing spectacular. Smell was a little tamed down from my other Porter experiences. Some roasted cocoa, pecans, espresso; all there, just not strong. Great crisp mouthfeel that felt nice and slightly tingly in the mouth. Wonderful flavors of dark chocolate, roasted nuts, coffee, and some dark fruits wash over the palate. My wife doesn’t really like darker beers, but loved this one. Great warming brew to enjoy a colder evening with. Delicious. Recommend.

I swear I’ve rated this like four times now. Anywho, thanks for that Geoff. Love this beer. Nice dark pour with a good creamy tan head. Clean dark grain character with a light roast and coffee acidity with barley husks. Medium bodied with an appropriate carbonation. Easy to knock back despite its substance and flavorful offering.

ICEatALAMO (1338) - Troy, Michigan, USA - APR 22, 2012
Bottle. Pours a rich dark brown with a light head that lingers around. Taste is pretty mild and I can for sure why this is an English style porter. Getting the chocolate coming through, but not the espresso in the finish. Good beer as far as porters go, would get again.

timfoolery (1126) - California, USA - APR 17, 2012
Bottle from Justin in trade. Aroma and flavor is light coffee. Not a whole bunch to say about this one, other than the flavor soured late. Fair beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown color with thin off-white lacing. Good amount of chocolate and nuts on the nose. The palate surprises with a slight smokey feel as well as a strong coffee note. Overall Interesting.
