Dorwart (2562) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Medium brown colored head of varying sized bubbles. Nice coffee and roasted malt aroma with some dark fruit and berries. Color is a very dark brown. Big coffee flavor up front that lasts the duration of the drink. Moderate bitterness from the coffee along with some ash, grainy malts and juniper berries. Mouthfeel is a bit watery. Finishes dry and bitter with a lingering coffee aftertaste. A little bit unbalanced but still decent.

Bought a 12-pack of this and almost forgot to rate it. Pours nearly black, just brown around the edges. Pours with a small head, but otherwise mostly flat. Nose is roasty coffee and cocoa nibs. Yum. Taste is a bit thin, as is the palate. Extra love for the cheap price tag.

Bottle pour opaque dark brown with moderate tan head. Nose lots of coffee, roasted malt, but a slightly odd earthy undertone. Taste mostly coffee then dark roast, hint of dark fruit. Light bitterness.

12oz bottle poured into snifter. Wow! Amazing coffee aroma. Cant remember the last beer I had that was overwhelmed with this much coffee aroma. Flavor is bitter with hints of dark chocolate and coffee bean. A real treat and surprise.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Sample at Knoxville Brewers Jam. Pours dark brown with beige head. the aroma is Latin American coffee, ash, some raisin. The flavor is rich with coffee, but the coffee seems to lack freshness. There is also some raisin and ash and a bit of resiny hops.

probably one of the drier porters ive ever had. the coffee flavor is there, and its a very black coffee kinda taste. not bad, but in the end doesnt do much for me overall.
