UPDATED: OCT 11, 2017 For me at least, everything about this microbrew porter is good, from it's nice cocoa/coffee appearance and aroma to the schticky communist title and label art - with the exception only of its watery mouthfeel that undermines the experience of this brew. Appealing flavor of roasted and chocolate malts, with a touch of English hops. Just a bit thin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Very good flavor with all the good dark notes of a stout but won't THE heaviness. Very light feel/texture ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle: Deep brown with a frothy tan head. Cola, chocolate scent. Taste is rich, semi-bitter chocolate malt, old black coffee, caramel malt. Solidly bodied with an increasing and robust ashy bitter. Very good.

12oz bottle @ home. Clearvdark reddish brown pour with a minimal beige head. Nose is very roasty- coffee and chocolate. Flavors also heavy roast coffee, cocoa, malt, some bitterness for good measure. Medium bodied, lingering dry finish. Excellent porter.

This was a little thin in the glass for me. Again I’m always comparing to favourites but it was just ok for me. I picked up on the chocolate and toffee back ground tastes which was a positive but a major negative for me on this one was that it made me feel completely bloated which would mean I wouldn’t drink it again. other stouts I’ve had don’t do this to me

ibrubeer (425) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 6, 2017
Draft @ Norfolk Tap Room. Faint roasty aroma. Dark color with maybe a slight ruby hue, thin beige head with slight lacing. Bittersweet chocolate notes at first with a little roast, followed by a little sweetness. Med body, appropriate for porter. Overall, a very nice porter.

A lovely sweet dark beer, thick head and very drinkable flavor profile. I like this one a lot.

Pretty standard porter, drinkable, but I can no longer come up with coherent new things to say about porters. Bottle from Bob. Thanks Bob!
