MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Dark black pour small brown head dissipates pretty quickly. Aroma is light heavily roasted malts a slight char and a touch of bitter cocoa powder. Avg palate. Flavor is nicely subtle char smoke over a lot of roast malts a pretty lingering bitterness touches of grass and coffee in the finish. Overall a good porter lacks a little depth though.

Six pack from Nikkis. Pours out jet black foamy tan head settles to a thin lace. Smoke aromas and flavors are very very subtle. Otherwise this is a tasty clean drinking porter.

johnnnniee (3951) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 30, 2016
Can from Drum Hill Liquors Dark brown/Black in color with a huge frothy creamy tan head that persists forever. Earthy spicy hops with a hint of smokiness on the nose. Light chocolate and roast as well. Earthy spicy hops with some light bacon campfire flavor. Moderate chocolatey roast that lingers in the finish. Decent beer, seems a bit like a black IPA with some smoke.

Draft sample at the source. The beer is a dark brown to black with a grey head of foam. The aroma is ashy chocolate, subtle smoke, licorice, sweet and smoky bitterness. Subtle smoke in the taste. Medium body and medium carbonation.

tfontana (836) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 31, 2016
Can pour into shaker pint glass from Manchester Wine and Liquors. Aroma is mild roasted malts with light ash, caramel, dark fruit. Appearance is dark brown/mahogany--almost black--with 1/2 finger-width beige head with poor retention and trace lacing. Taste is slightly stronger than aroma but similar--mostly roasted malt and lightly ashy. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with thick texture, average carbonation and mildly sweet and lasting ash finish. Overall, a promising premise that is fairly weak in aroma and taste.

Beer and Smoke, Brooklyn can: pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is light smoke, coffee, and a bit of chocolate. Taste is fairly light and not that smokey when push comes to shove. Kind of very light for a porter. I was not crazy impressed.

Can from a secret place. Black with dense lasting tan head and lace. Smoky aroma with chocolate and roasted coffee mild fruit and nuts. Roasted chocolate coffee and subdued fruity sweetness. Woody bitterness with long smoky dark chocolate finish. Medium body perhaps a touch more carbo than necessary. Love this. I could drink this all day and night. Excellent.
