AWMiller (512) - Mansfield, Texas, USA - NOV 3, 2011
Not a bad porter; nothing over the top but not bad at all. Could easily see this one going better when it is poured over some vanilla or peanut butter ice cream. Nutty, chocolaty and quite a bit of dark coffee all mixed in. Very easy on the palate and quite the chug-able brew. Again, not a bad porter.

Pintofjoe29 (14) - Dingman Ferry, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2016 Pours the standard black with almost no head. Certainly smells the part...delicious roasty coffee dominates, with hints of mocha and vanilla. Taste is a muted version of the smell of this brew; coffee and toasted malt. I have to say that the mouthfeel is very disappointing for this one. When I enjoy a porter I expect a heartier chewier beer. This one is very thin and watery. Overall this one isn?t bad; aroma and flavor are on point. The thin watery palate is holding this porter back from being great

Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is coffee, slightly burnt coffee, roasted malts, sticks, caramel and toffee. Taste is slightly weaker version of the aroma with some tang and carbonation. Not bad.

ordybill (1457) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - NOV 7, 2016
Poured from the tap into a 20 OZ mug at the Taco Mac in Atlanta, GA. The appearance is a dark brown to black color with a small tan head. The aroma is roasted malt and a little coffee. The taste was more coffee driven. I really enjoyed this beer.

darbeer75 (638) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - NOV 5, 2016
Aroma: very roasty with coffee notes; Appearance: pitch black with thin offwhite head that dissipates slowly; Taste: follows nose with some sweetness and nicely complex finish; main body a little lacking; Palate: heavy body with long, roasty finish; Overall: decent porter; coffee didnt add much but would buy again.

mrjaxson (506) - .08 Junction, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 7, 2016
Coffee is most noticeable in the aroma but there are less-pronounced scents of chocolate and freshly turned earth. Body is unusually light for a porter. The finish has light dryness but no bitterness. Poured from a bottle to create a respectable head.

Grumbo (1674) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2016
Bottle from the Wine Boutique in Felixstowe, and shared at the 3rd Ipswich bottle share. Pours a deep purple brown colour with a thin beige head. Aroma of blackberry, coffee, winter berries and dark fruit. Curious sweetness and no descernible bitterness. Medium body but weak texture. Soft carbonation. Bitter finish, with some light roasted coffee. Didnt enjoy this one much.

glennmastrange (2717) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - SEP 15, 2016
Bottle. Moderate toasted, bread dark chocolate and strong coffee for the malt, light resin for the hops, light earth for the yeast, with a hint of smokiness in the background. Head is small, creamy, light tan with good slippery lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts lightly acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, slick with a soft to lively carbonation and a dry finish. A solid Porter with everything in the right place.

MattChiasson (63) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 6, 2016
Out of the bottle poured a deep black, opaque, with a thin lasting tan head. I got notes of coffee, chocolate, cola, sweet roasted malt, and blackstrap molasses. No hops that I could detect, but some slight roasted malt bitterness. Surprisingly light bodied and drinkable.
