The brew has a roasted chocolate smell to it. The color is a deep, dark brown with a bit of dark red where the light gets through. The head is a medium brown with almost no clinging to the side and dissipated quickly. The carbonation gets in the way of the roasted malt flavor.

puboflyons (3332) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - APR 19, 2013
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is dark brown to nearly black with a lasting mocha foamy head. It looks the way it should. The aroma is powerful with dark malts and coffee and a little smoke. But the finale is not as good as the start. The body is thin to medium. The taste has a butterscotch thing and a low bitterness but it kind of astringent and acidic. It looks and smells good but something is missing in the body and flavor.

Headbanger (3986) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2013
12oz bottle 4/13/13 (Binnys Naperville clearance Rack)-40 in English Pint-Pours dark brown with a small circle for a head. Aroma of rpasted malt, chocolate, and coffee. Taste of the same with a smoke, malt, and coffee. This full bodied brew is well balanced and quite tasty. A bit lighter but still tasty.

TURDFERGUSON (4056) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 9, 2013
Bottle from SH. Pours mahogany brown with a small fizzy off white head that fades. Nose is roast, toast, light metal, and lactic sourness. Flavor is similar, definitely of the Old English style. Not a huge fan.

maxwelldeux (4373) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a moderate off-white head. Nose is a little bitter from the English hops, but not all that appealing. Toast is a little bitter with some roasting in there. Not all that tasty...

Not a bad porter overall dark smooth and good when you need something refreshing and light

crossovert (12257) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 15, 2013
Not what I woudl call a shining exapmle of the style. IT is thin and watery, very light on malt, a lot of yeast.

Bulk_Carrier (5061) - Essex Junction, Vermont, USA - JAN 12, 2013
It poured a deep brown, practically black with a tiny tan head. There was minimal lacing. The aroma has a nice full roastiness with some chocolate to it. The taste has a very full-on roasty, somewhat burnt-ness to it. There are some subtle hints of chocolate and nuttiness to help it along. The palate is medium with nothing harsh on the tongue. Overall, this is a good beer, decent for the style.
