Draft a little while back, and again from a growler I bootlegged back to Atlanta. Opaque brown to black pour. Big roasted aroma with some coffee. Again, big roasted malt flavors, a good amount of coffee too and a touch of smoke. At first I thought it was thin, but as BeerCellar reminded me, it is a low-grav porter. Good porter imo.

jercraigs (11071) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 23, 2006
Draft @ Kuhnhenn. Black body, moderate creamy tan head. Nitro dispense is creamy but almost feels like a cask beer, thin but very smooth (3+). Sweet cocoa flavour with very light roast and dark chocolate hints. Roast in the aroma with a hint of hazelnut.

Draught sample at the brewpub. Dark ruby-brown with a small, creamy tan head. Aroma is quite dry and roasty with notes of cocoa, smoke, and toasted nuts. Soft, smooth body. Flavour is very nutty and roasty, with a long, dry finish. A solid porter.

strongpieman (1651) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - JUL 4, 2010
Draft at the brewery... Very good porter. Dark color, nice head. Balanced flavor and very drinkable. Comparable to Bell’s Porter. Not as thick as Founders. Well done and a good choice.

3.8
TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 26, 2010
Draft at Stellas Lounge (Grand Rapids, MI). Pours a nice darker blackish brown, good opaque quality, with a frothy light brown head atop that dies to a small film, laces ok. Aromas are cocoa and brown malts, sweeter with a touch of earthy tobacco, brown sugar, bread malts with a touch of toffee, creamy sweetness and light floral hopping. Initial is decent lighter yet complex porter, sweeter cocoa and a touch of creamy sweetness, floral hops provide a light bitterness, brown malts and light roast with some decent biscuit. A nice mellow vanilla and cocoa, brown malts, a faint hint of licorice. This is a top notch balanced brown porter up there with Pullman Brown. Tasty
