frpilz (111) - Illinois, USA - JUN 20, 2012
Light aroma of slightly roasted nuts and sweet toffee. Pours dark brown, thick no opacity to the color. Medium brown color head, smallish which didnt last. Low carbonation, medium mouthfeel which starts out light but fills up as the flavors and body envelope your mouth. Even flavor throughout, some alcholol warmth at the very end. more tha n you would think for only 6.5 abv. Smooooth , creamy, RICH ,and luscious..but not overly bold or too flavorful. More subtle ,maybe even underflavored compared to some Porters or Brown ales. Great malt tatste though, satisfying , and leaves you wanting more. Very little bitterness, leans towards sweetness, flavors of dark chocolate, raisins, dark cherry , plum, roasted walnuts. Excellent Porter !

I dont get a lot of smell off this one, but it sure is tasty as hell. Lots of coffee and roasted flavors make this a good one. No head to it at all.

12 oz bottle served in a pint glass. Pour is deep cola with two big fingers of deep khaki foam that left a nice show on the glass. Nose is big roasted malt, coffee, and a bit of toffee. Taste is right on with the nose, but delivered in an uber creamy fashion with some raisin flavor that wasnt apparent in the nose. This is a fantastic porter that Ive somehow missed up until I picked up this variety case.

RoyalFlushing (326) - Mamaroneck, New York, USA - JUN 4, 2012
Bottle poured a dark cola with a small tan head that dissapated quickly and minimal lacing. Aroma is big on roasted coffee, semi-sweet chocolate, cocoa powder, and hints of raisin. First sip begins with bold coffee and roasted malt flavor followed by bittersweet chocolate and cocoa. Extremely well-balanced flavors that led to a smooth finish with smoke and slight bitterness lingering to play with the palate. Truly enjoyable porter.

Pours a deep black with a short brown head. The aroma has lots of chocolate, with a bit of coffee. The flavor is chocolate up front, with the coffee showing up afterwards along with a bit of hop spiciness and a smooth body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Opaque black beer, thick foamy light tan head. Toasted malt nose. Semi dry palate that is quite silky. Lightly toasted malt, a little creamy as well. An odd touch of glue is a distraction before unsweeet dark chocolate and a splash of espresso present. Could be decent but the glue is a real turn off.

Pours deep dark umber color with subtle aromas of burnt coffee, earth and hints of chocolate. On the palate it comes through with rich bubbles and roasted malty flavors; chocolate, coffee, leaves, blueberry and a rich bitterness on the finish.
