On tap @ Kinetic. Black colored beer with a tan head. Roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and a bit of smoke. Slight ashiness. There’s a bit of a savory character to the taste. Lightly bitter, as well. Lots of roasted malt, some coffee, and smoke. Semi-sweet chocolate and a bit of licorice. bytemesis (9231) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUL 17, 2013
Tap. Pours clear deep brown mahogany. Small tan head, nice lacing. Aroma is you’re standard cigarettes, coffee, roasted malts. Flavor is the same, plus a touch of vanilla. Light plus sweet, light bitter. Medium body. Decent enough.

Sample at the brewpub. Dark brown pour with a medium thick foamy tan head that diminishes slowly to a film. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Light-bodied with a roasty character of coffee and malt, plus some hops and sweet chocolate in the background. The finish is sweet with a bready malt and chocolate aftertaste. Pretty good all around. colinize (316) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 13, 2012

A nice brown hued porter with coffee overtones. Doesn’t taste like 6.1% at all. There is some chocolate taste lurking there but this is a well balanced brew that isn’t thin and doesn’t knock you over either. EEMan (3) - - JUL 16, 2012 does not count
I thought this was a very good porter. Nice appearance and aroma. It had a very smooth feeling going down as well. I had it on tap.
