FROTHINGSLOSH (7073) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2016
Sampled on draft at the Media location this beer poured an almost black color with orange highlights and a medium sized foamy tan head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was dryish with brewed coffee and wood. The flavor was dry and bitter with sourish coffee and wood. Very long finish. Medium body. Meh.

unclemike (2953) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - SEP 16, 2016
iron hill west chester Pours a very dark brown with a very thin head that does leave moderate lacing. The aroma is a pleasant chocolatey goodness with a touch of roastiness blended in. The taste is a heavy coffee flavor with a hint of chocolate. It finishes slightly bitter. Its pretty nice in flavor compared to most porters. Not bad at all

yngwie (16614) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 28, 2015
On tap at the Maple Shade brewpub. A brown, almost clear beer topped by a light beige head. The aroma has coffee, chocolate and roasted malts, quite balanced. Theres some bitterness and sweetness in the flavor, but its mostly roasted malts giving you chocolate and coffee. Smooth, dry and full to medium bodied and with a lasting finish. A nice beer, but more a brown ale than a porter I think. 150623
