Thick and dark. Chocolate and super coffee to begin, and a slight charcoal character at the end. Delish! phaleslu (10323) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Draft at the brewpub, a 10 oz. pour in a footed glass that I shared with my wife along with our 6-glass sampler. Pours a deep, dark brown with a small khaki head. Aroma of chocolate, toasted malts, earth, nuts, brown sugar, and cream. Flavor of roasted and toasted malts, earth, nuts, cream, and dark chocolate. Medium-bodied, with mellow carbonation and a malty, toasty mouthfeel. Good porter; maybe my favorite beer of the lineup. berrya785 (441) - Kansas, USA - JUL 25, 2012
On tap at Free State on 7/20/2012. Pours dark brown almost black with a small tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, and coffee. Taste is smoky and semi-sweet chocolate with a nice dry finish. Very good. RobertDale (6551) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - JUL 17, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Comes dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste is roasted malt, some dark chocolate, and a bit of smoke. Nice. notalush (5883) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - JUL 13, 2012
Tap at the brewery - a very dense and rich porter, with complex notes of bittersweet chocolate, coffee, and a moderate by deeply complex smoky quality to it, that compliments the moderate roastiness of the darker malts - creamy texture and full bodied for the style - loved it.

Draft at the source. Very dark marion color, thin beige head, solid lacing. Arona of dark roasted coffee, subtle cocoa. Taste is burnt espresso and dark fruits. Very nice.
