Tap @ brewery shared with HopTsing. Very dark with thin dissipating head. First sniff reminds me of wine, then I get chocolate, then light coffee, and a sour note. Light roast flavor. Lots of carbonation. Not too bad. Beergeek23322 (2602) - Chester, Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2013

Received in a trade from RABinVA. Drank this brew with a fantastic birthday dinner of Falafel, African Mango and Avocado Salad , and Carrot Cake, all prepared by my darling wife. Pours Mahogany with ample tan head. Flavor notes of coffee, chocolate, and citrus, in that order. Weak scent. Glad I got a chance to give this a try.

Roasty light coffee and alcohol notes. Black body with slight red hue. Dry coffee and choclate notes with malty finish. Crisp and dry on palate Emeister84 (2505) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 21, 2013
Aromas of roasted dark chocolate, coffee, dark earth, and subtle citrus. Black with ruby highlights, and a mostly fading, beige head. Dry, earthy, and roasty. Medium body, good carbonation, and with a roasty finish. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Very dark brown pour, light brown head. Dry porter, lots of roasted malt, licorice, dark toast, roasted nuts. climberbob (458) - Virginia, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Not much to say about this porter, which reflects the general lack of aroma and flovour. Mild roasty and malt flavours, a touch of bitterness, and a slightly unpleasant metallic aftertaste. Biggest downside is that it is almost watery - not something I look for in a porter.
