Drank from a pint glass from the taps at Rattle N Hum, NY, Pours a jet black color with little carbonation and a slim whitish head. Nice dark chocolate flavor, some roasted malt, little bit of alcohol punch toward the end.

Pours black with minimal tan head. Head recedes quickly. Aroma of chocolate, sweet malt and a hint of hops. Flavor is very chocolaty. Bitterness is present throughout, but not overpowering. Strong coffee flavor. Silky smooth on the palate. Carbonation is slightly stingy, but blends well with the thick body. Overall, a great porter. Awsome body and well balances. Roasty and robust.

Bottle. Pours almost black with minimal tan head. Nose is more suggestive of a stout than a porter: dry with lots of toasted malts, some chocolate. Medium-bodied, dry , roasty, chocolate. Finishes long, bitter, chocolaty. Overall a great porter.

monkeychugg55 (1066) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - MAY 2, 2010
Pours a very dark cola with a small foamy tan head that leaves lots of lacing. I found the aroma to be very smokey, with mesquite and tobacco, with a good amount of espresso roast, and some slight noble hops. The flavor is more roasty coffee, with a bit of tobacco, and a fair mix of coffee and hops. The mouthfeel is thick for a porter imo, but thats not really a bad thing. Soft carbonation and a biting bitter finish round this out. I traded a Kalamazoo Stout for this on Dark Lord Day and Im glad I did, THANKS! dude whose name I cant remember.

Poured a dark, oily black with a thin brown lacy head. Strong taste, but in a good way. Not as bitter as I thought it was going to be, and has pretty strong coffee and chocolate flavors. Good, complex palate with a good aftertaste.
