Draught @ Cooper’s Craft & Kitchen - Chelsea. Opaque dark brown with foamy beige head, coffee beans aroma, medium carbonation, slightly sweet mocha-roasted malt taste with alcohol undertones, smooth and thickish body, long bitter mocha finish. Very very good, as expected. DiarmaidBHK (4797) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2017
Draft at Armsby Abbey. Pours black with an inch of khaki foam. Leaves a shitload of lacing in the glass. Massive roasted chocolate malt notes on the nose. Lots of chocolate on the tongue. Very thick and luxiourius with a bit of hoppiness on the finish. Just a gorgeous gorgeous beer. williamstome (1868) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - APR 16, 2017
Black pour, small brown head. Amazing aroma of coffee, roast, dark chocolate, and cocoa. Taste follows, very roasty. guil0000 (433) - New Brunswick, CANADA - APR 12, 2017
Pours a dark black color with a nice mocha head. Nose of vanilla, chocolate malts, roasted coffee, woodyness, dark fruits, caramel malts. Taste is incredibly smooth, so creamy and thick. You get a lingering toastiness from the roasted malts. Full body. Finish is a bit dry. Extremely well made. GenDV138 (7231) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - APR 6, 2017

Lots of roast. And some coffee. Light caramel. Creamy consistency. Black pour with good head and lacing. Bitter finish. Better than shirly Mae like Shirly Temple. Nice. Tap at Churchkey. jandd1983 (4276) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - FEB 26, 2017
Shared at gregwilsonstl house. It poured a black color with a dark brown head. The aroma was of dark roast, bitter chocolate, caramel, malts, light smokiness and dark fruits. The taste was similar to the aroma with more dark chocolate, roast, caramel, tobacco, licorice, light smokiness, wood and dark sweet fruits. Tasty. meyers1023 (94) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 18, 2017
This could be the best porter I’ve ever had. The look is spot on, dark with a huge mocha head. The smell was outstanding, tons of chocolate, coffee, and hints of tobacco. The flavor follows suit as you get a bitter dark chocolate mixed with coffee and nice spicy finish. The feel is on the creamier side with a good amount of carbonation. fiulijn (20427) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 19, 2016
