Tmoney99 (14273) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 9, 2011
Tap sample. Poured a dark brown color with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted malt, spice and chocolate aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted chocolate sweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid complex brew.

NachlamSie (3439) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 14, 2017
Bomber, shared by friends. This looks like about right, pretty dark with a light tan head. The aroma is malty, mostly chocolatey. Not a ton of aggressive roastiness is present. Mouthfeel is creamy with low bitterness in the flavor. Tastes chocolatey, nutty, just smooth with lower astringency. Its so well rounded and reminiscent of an old-school porter. Finishes pleasantly sweet with a tasteful roast.

OldGrowth (3457) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - NOV 6, 2016
Bottle, from brewery. Good aroma, sweet. Roasty, chocolaty. Coffee, Little earthy streak. Dark or any brown color, ok head and lace. Sweet flavor. Medium body, still creamy mouthfeel. Bitter sweet finish. Nice roasty porter, most enjoyable with flavor and finish. IMO. Nothing unique, but good to try

650ml bottle from Jims in Mundelein. Chocolate. Caramel. Some roast. Neither too thick or too deep though. Just fairly tasty and a reasonable example of style. 13.8

jbruner (4627) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 7, 2016
Pours a deep blackish brown from the bomber with bubbly tan head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma and taste of chocolate malt, cocoa, hint of fruity yeast esters, and a mild vanilla back end. Nicely done porter, but nothing that exciting.

Notes of oatmeal and simi sweet chocolate a real the core to this beer. Average body. Very warming and drinkable. Quite good.

Poured a darker brown with a beige head. Aroma of caramel and moderate roast. Flavor similar, a bit light, not very robust and a tad on the watery side.
