Tap at Southern Rail. Pours a deep ruby looking black. Thin layer of coffee foam. Nose is rich malted milk balls, milk chocolate. Moves to puppy breath. Taste is tangy, lemon tea. Pretty thin with some soil/earth grittiness. Pretty average overall. Soil grittiness and lemon tea character unwanted. My rating: 3.2. Fiancé rating: 3.7. She says a bit chalky on finish and coffee forward.

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 (412) - 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. can8ianben (1577) - State College, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2017
A lovely sweet dark beer, thick head and very drinkable flavor profile. I like this one a lot. jb (3407) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 10, 2016
Pretty standard porter, drinkable, but I can no longer come up with coherent new things to say about porters. Bottle from Bob. Thanks Bob! Ron (4180) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 8, 2016
Bottle from Bob. It pours very dark brown with a nice tan head. The aroma is pretty rich with cocoa, coffee and hard roasted malt. The flavor is bitter dark chocolate, toast and coffee. It has a balanced bitter, roasted finish. Rich, full body with a touch of English yeast to go with the strong American malt and hop profile.
