12 oz bottle Dark brown with beige head. Aroma is of cocoa, coffee, roasted malts. Taste follows aroma Hopper8 (228) - Holland, Michigan, USA - JAN 8, 2017
It’s a really good beer, and has a forward grapefruit hop presence. Not the best Porter I’ve ever had though. Would probably take a pass for some other porters. Block (2950) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - DEC 29, 2016
Backlog entry: I had this one at the brewery. It’s a solid beer, nothing too unusual or stand-out. I’m surprised this beer is Top 50, a solid representation.

Taste is of coffee, dark chocolate dark fruits, nuts, biscuits, caramel, bitter roasted finish. Thin watery to oily mouthfeel, medium carbonation. mambossa (337) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - OCT 30, 2016
Fresh bottle from the brewery. Nearly-opaque with mahogany glow. Chocolate-espresso malt notes, some bright tobacco, earthy herbal notes of noble hops. Flavor is chocolately with a nice grainy maltiness, hints of smooth espresso and cacao, lingering with the alpha acids of spicy and citrus noble hops. A no-brainer porter. Those in favor of dark beers shouldn’t hesitate to grab this one. Clean, balanced, proper. A solid go-to for those who love dark beers with modest abv.
