12 oz bottle from Buy Rite. Dark brown pour with a thin, light brown head and some drippy, spotty lacing. Spice, rye, and malt. Some dry roast coffee. Bit of smoke as well. Solid flavor and mouthfeel. Average to lively carbonation, finishes with a bit a spicy tingle. Fairly long close. joeneugs (6372) - Livermore, California, USA - AUG 12, 2016
Bottle. It pours black with a small light brown head. The aroma is chocolaty and roasted. A little smoky. The flavor is the same. It has some dense breadiness with some spicy hop bitterness. Chocolaty with hints of smoke and roasted malt. Good full oily body, no doubt because of the rye. I’m a sucker for rye porters. Love the body it gives them. kevinsenn (2405) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2016
On tap at brewpub. Rich roasty aroma with some spice hints. Vanilla, chocolate, big roasty taste. Light caramel notes and a dry finish. Bug and smoky. SlovakSniper (5562) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 27, 2016
Bière brune sur laquelle flotte un anneau de mousse. Le nez est superbe, chocolaté et épicé avec une touche de grain de café qui fume et une pointe d’orange et de noisettes. Le goût est moins riche et montre des malts chocolatés, des malts rôtis qui fument et des notes terreuses. Le corps moyen-mince pétille modérément et a une texture légèrement crémeuse. La finale de terre et d’épices ne me plaît pas particulièrement. PanMarek (465) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2016
Dark pour with thin foam. Touches of chocolate and roasted coffee in the nose. Malty taste with a touch of rye spice and bitterness at the end. Rich mouthfeel. A little more spicy than a typical porter.

Black pour from draft at Righteous brothers in Cincinnati. Off white head. Graham cracker, cocoa, chalky, thick mouthfeel a little bourbon. Not bad but a mouthful to deal with for low abv puboflyons (3639) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 23, 2016
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle which looks to be dated 10-12-15. Dark brown pour with reddish hues and a modest off-white head. It fades fast. The aroma has a dark and sweet grainy malt character with a low hop profile. Medium or better body. The taste is more sweet than grainy but both are there. Mild dry bitterness to finish. r464 (2424) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 10, 2016
