Bottle from BottleSelect.com. Pours dark brown with red glints against the sun. Aroma is chocolate. Med body or nearly. Flavor is chocolate, dark malt, and get a little gritty something like coffee. Finishes bitter. Nice! punkska101 (2053) - Chambly, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 29, 2013

Dried out red fruit aroma with sarsaparilla and brown sugar. Whiffs of weak coffee. Certainly somewhat thin; it’s hard to find much malt depth immediately.

Streamlined dark malt flavor of bitter chocolate, grahams and bitter roots. The low density is appropriate, and the relatively high alcohol is unnoticeable even given that. It has what it should have and it’s well made.
One of the Better porters I have had. Really hoppy and smokey in flavor. Has a bitter aftertaste and smells chocolately. Had this one at home.

1 pint .9oz bottle big thanks to Phatdog1. Poured an opaque black color with a frothy khaki head with massive lacing. Taste of oats, cocoa, roasted malt, smoke, and a slight hop finish. Thick body, medium carbonation. Cheers

Beautiful dark pour with nice tan lacing, Licorice and hoppy somewhat smoky taste with chocolate undertones overall decent beer. gruberm (329) - - DEC 19, 2013
A nice malty porter. Well colored and handsome. The head can be substantial if not poured carefully and a nice light brown color.

Courtesy of Archer Liquors, Chicago, Illinois, pour is a rich black color with a nice java head. Nose is malty and rich deep chocolate. Taste is malty., with heavy chocolate on the palate and nice even sweetness. This porter is full of flavor and delicious. Finishes on the same tasting notes. Excellent! !

Pours a dark brown with a brown head and aroma of roasted malt. Taste is strong, nice deep roasted malt notes with rich chocolate and coffee leading to a smooth finish. Delicious porter with great flavor Chalsk (1104) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - DEC 16, 2013
On the Third Day of Christmas 2013 the beer gods gave to me . . . a tasty porter. Pours a dark black color with off white foam head. Aroma of roast, burnt chocolate and muted vanilla. Dry, sweet roasty taste with chocolate and caramel hints and some creamy vanilla underneath. A nice hop hit for balance and texture from the earthiness. Solid.
