Pours black from the bottle, with a foamy, mocha-brown head. The aroma is distinctly reminiscent of coffee and milk, with a bit of milk chocolate and some kind of dry mineral character beneath. The flavor is pleasantly mild, with a light coffee bitterness and lactose sweetness predominating, although some herbal hops and bittersweet chocolate are also present. Overall, although the flavor is a bit dominated by the coffee character, it doesn’t change the impression of this beer as a pleasant, drinkable porter.

Sample at Mellow Mushroom in Johnson City. Brownish-black pour with a medium beige head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted coffee, malt and hops. Medium body with flavors of toasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate. Hops in the background as well. The finish is roasty with a black coffee aftertaste. Above average overall. jgb9348 (6257) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 5, 2013
Nice deep dark brown coloured body with a thin, one centimetre tall creamy tan head. Aroma of coffee, roasted nuts, earth, caramel and a bit of cardboard. Medium-bodied; Deep roasty flavour with a ton of caramel, a lot of vanilla, some oak, a hint of bourbon and a nice rich coffee flavour. Aftertaste shows a good complexity with cream, nuts, medicinal flavours and a hint of pit fruits. Overall, a nice and full flavoured beer with some good and unexpected flavours. Not an out-of-this-world beer, but good for sure. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in McLean, Virginia on 04-January-2013 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 05-March-2013.

This is a nice beer, coffee comes through but not as overwhelming as you would think. Very solid beer

Pours dark brown with a good sized, creamy head. Strong aromas of coffee and chocolate. Bitter chocolate flavor works well with the roasted malts, making a solid porter. rondphoto (4448) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - FEB 9, 2014
@ Party Town / Florence KY --- Opaque brown-black with a light head cover, thin streaks of lace. Aroma is healthy earth, malt, and coffee. Taste matches the aroma: roasted malt, dark, moist earth, coffee, and dark toast are all present on a base of mild bittering. All moves smoothly to a lingering finish in which no additiopnal bittering is necessary. Very palatable, I’m having it tonight in front of TV and a fire with Triscuits and Havarti cheese. It’s a good night. pumpmaster (1393) - Pembroke Pines, Florida, USA - MAY 1, 2014
12 ounce bottle purchased at Total Wine Pembroke Pines, FL for $5.99/6-pack. Very good! drsordr (2659) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - NOV 6, 2014
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.
