10th October 2008. GABF. Made with toasted coconut. The sweetness of the coconut offsets the porter flavours well, especially in the dry finish. SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 16, 2010
On tap at the brewpub 2/14/9. Pours dark brown to black with a dark tan head. This is fairly roasted for a porter. Good lacing. Finishes with a strong sourness on the mid tongue. Chocolate and roasted malt flavors, but a bit thin in body. Pretty good, but not outstanding. nearbeer (5636) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 16, 2009
Bomber. Dark brown; almost all foam, even with an easy pour. Faint coffee, orange and cocoa aroma. Flavor is coffee, citrus, sawdust and caramel. Near-medium body is roasty dry and a tad too airy. Snegurochka (397) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 6, 2009
Cream-coloured head, diminishing. Dark. Malty aroma, hints of coffee, redcurrant, blackberry and rasberry. Creamy feeling. Then dry, a bit bitter and a finish that resembles that metallic taste of blood. Purchased in Seattle, shared at the Superpower beer session part II in Tromsø 29.01.09 dwyerpg (6462) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 3, 2009
Pretty roasty. A somewhat thickish porter. Quite a bit of coffee in this. Flavor is okay, not amazing.

22 oz. bottle purchased at World Market in Newport News, VA. Beautiful black pour with creamy tan head. Aroma of floral hops and some roasted malts. Flavor is a bit to citrusy for a porter and really dominates over the coffee and smoke flavors that are faintly present in the background. The mouthfeel, however, is superb; thick and rich. Overall a decent porter. I feel that if the hops had been toned down a bit this could have been outstanding. Capa (3503) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JUL 29, 2009
Dark with a medium tan head. Some light roasted notes and a surprising amount of citrus hops mixed with molasses. Odd. Flavor is much the same. Very sour, as well. Thin, carbonated mouth. I was really looking for more in this one. Can’t say I’m a fan. presario (4925) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 12, 2009
Pint at Hales. Black with a thin head. Attractive dark malt scent. Strong dark bitter porter. Hint of molasses. An agressive dark beer. Hops and spice. Prune and raisin. Dark malt flavour. A little more adventerous than the norm. alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - APR 7, 2009
On tap at Hales. Had decent expectations for this one, but yet again it was not very good. Color was dark brown. Aroma of roasted malt with a touch of sweet malt. Flavor was of fruit, roasted malt, with a bit of chalkiness. ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 16, 2009
Cask @ Bardenay - Pours a thin brown with no head...aroma is toasty, a bit of sweet malt...flavour is roasted grain, a bit of char, clean enough, but just not that good...finish is a bit watery with a lingering bitterness...meh...
