Sampled at GABF 2015. In the tasting glass brown with a tan head. Nose of roasted malts, chocolate and dark ripe fruit. Some citrus as well. Medium plus body. Flavor is dominate by chocolate and coffee, but the fruit and hops plus the bitter finish make for a solid and really great tasting porter. I liked this one a lot. Dorkenstein (545) - - OCT 21, 2015

A classic porter. Pours with a lot of head. Good aroma, nice nutty taste with a hint of coffee. Bottle. Luvystypotables (1967) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - OCT 15, 2015
Aroma of coffee with a hint of cocoa, pours a dark black color with a short last tan head. Taste of coffee and malt with a hint of chocolate. Viscous feel and bitter finish. jc1762 (1436) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 8, 2015
A tulip glass showing half a finger of latte colored foam and coffee brown center.
The nose shows lightly roasted malts with a light vanilla in the background coming together to show an adzuki-like sweetness.
The palate is light bodied and moderately carbonated but very foamy. Light flavors of roasted yet sweet adzuiki light malts. Light coffee on the finish and a good coffee flavor on the linger. Overall, simple yet tasty.

Low head. Faint coffee taste with very crisp finish. Light taste and easy to drink.

Pours clear dark brown with a beige head. Nose: a little ground cumin at first.. Odd.. Then more rosted notes follow, although it’s all very restrained. Wallnuts too.. Taste: like a light stout but at only 5.8% this packs an okay punch flavor-wise. Mouthfell is medium and the aftertaste has lightly roasted malts, licorice and coffee. Not bad at all.

Pour is opaque dark reddish brown, with a small slightly off white head.
Aroma is nicely roasted, with some coffee and a lot of licorice present. Slight ash and bitter chocolate. Slight asphalt notes as well. (Ye. I’ve been licking the pavement from time to time)
Taste has very slight sweet notes up front, but is dominantly bitter.
Medium bodied, with a somewhat fizzy carb. scarletfire65 (1466) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 3, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2015 Bottle at home. Black pour. Creamy beige head. Aroma is sweet roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate. Flavor follows suit with smoky vanilla notes, ash, woody, and a sweet chocolate maltiness underneath. Creamy palate. Ashy bitterness with stale, musty tasting hops on the finish. tsd08460 (1170) - Marshall, Virginia, USA - AUG 31, 2015
