12 oz. bottle to snifter. poured dark brown with thin tan head. Aroma was coffee and malt with faint chocolate. Taste was chocolate and malt with malty after tones. Palate has thin to medium feel which feels slick yet finishes somewhat dry. Overall one of the best porters that I have had!

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2010 12oz bottled Feb 2, 2010, this is quite fresh. Served cool room temp into a Duvel tulip. Pours thick very dark brown/black with a one and a half finger dense brown head that maintains a light cap and leaves some spotty lacing. Aroma is very very roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, some smoke, roasty toasty. Can pick up a touch of earthy hops. Flavor is smooth milk chocolate, dark roasted malts, coffee, some bitterness on the finish along with some lingering sweetness. Mouthfeel is full, velvety, and rich, medium carbonation. Thicker and richer than many other regular porters. This is one of the best, if not the best porter out there. Excellent.

phaleslu (9573) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 24, 2010
12 oz. bottle from The Party Source. Pours very dark brown, almost like motor oil out of the bottle, but not quite black. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, earthy hops, dark fruits, burnt sugar, and oats. Flavor of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, dark fruits (cherries, plum, and figs), burnt sugar, and earthy hops. Medium-full bodied, with light carbonation and an oily mouthfeel. So smooth. Rich and robust. Finish is lightly roasted, tart, and earthy. What a cool beer. This is a great standard for porters.

Pour from bottle. Deep black with tan, creamy head that laces very well. Chocolate comes through strong in the aroma with hints of coffee and a trace of smoke. Moderately sweet and bitter. Full body that starts creamy and ends dry with medium finish. Best porter Ive tried.

On tap at Trappeze. Pours dark brown with a brown head, lots of lace. Aroma is chocolate and roasty, some nut. Taset is also roasty and sweet, with lots of chocolate, some light hop notes, and lots of malt sweetness. Mouth is creamy and full. Overall, a nice porter.

Rating 501 of this brew. Got it in a trade. Beersommelier maybe? MrChopin maybe? Either way, its yummy. 12 oz bottle. Dark to black with brown persistent head. Heavy lace, ala burlap, and fit ring, like around a latte or mocha. Nose is super sweet with malt. Taste is bonk of sweet that takes a long time to work itself out. Flat and tart in the front moving round as it goes back. Full mouth at the end. Creamy end, with a bite of chocolate leftovers, like the gooey bitterness left over after chocolate milk. Nice beer!

I dont like porters. This is no porter. Black and chocolate, but dry like a porter. Its more of a really good, dry stout.
