Brown color, looks like a brown ale rather than a porter. Mild hoppiness. Watered brown bread with light unfermented malts. Comes of a bit as a kvass. Has a mineral feel. MadRobin (2989) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - JUN 5, 2017

Deep dark brown appearance with a large tan head and good lacing. Roasted malt aroma with notes of caramel, chocolate and coffee. Rye has an impact on the woodsy flavor that, tied together with the bittersweet chocolate, a complimentary amount of coffee and modest abv, make it a good sessionable dark ale. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel with a lasting finish. kramer (6991) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2017
Can. Pours a clear dark brown body with a one finger foamy brown head. The nose is chocolate, roast, light rye spiciness, some coffee, and a hint of citrusy hops. The flavor is chocolaty up front, just a little light rye spiciness, some lingering dark cocoa and coffee on the finish. Just a slight hop bitterness towards the back end. Medium bodied with a slight clinginess and soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty decent beer, not world beater, but pretty drinkable. katrinaez (2411) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2017 Nice even rye flavor. Dark brown color. Good carbonation. Not amazing, not bad. Would have again at the brewery. Tap

Draft. Pours opaque nut brown with a creamy tan head. Tastes like nutty malt, burnt toast, and earth. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like nutty malt, burnt toast, earth, and ashy wood. sonnycheeba (6694) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 10, 2016

4 oz pour on draft at Spacebar. Dark brownish black with light tan head. Aromas of dark chocolate, light roast. Tastes of rye, dark chocolate, roasty notes. Medium body with a dry finish. Pretty good. PHChikka (25) - - MAY 20, 2016
From a 12-oz "not for resale"-type can. I thought I would hate this - Dundalk as an origin point brought out the skeptic in me. But lo and behold, this beer is rich, drinkable and has a real lovely texture to it. Spicy and roasty with none of the offputting acidity that some other, newer Maryland porters have shown. Props. nuplastikk (6633) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 28, 2016
Tap at Maxs. Sweet, rich, malty porter. The rye isn’t overwhelming, well incorporated. Medium to full bodied, heavy specialty malt tones. Big and roasty with a mellow amber malt undertone. Good.
