Nice dark color and malty aromas. Immediately thought of a stout after the initial pour but mild flavor came through. Could not really pick out the hops but it may just be my inexperienced palate. mzaar (3589) - Varberg, SWEDEN - OCT 24, 2013
På fat. Svart med medelstort smutsvitt skum. En svag rökighet är det som först når näsan, därefter fylls det på med mörk choklad och soja. Rökigheten är intensivare i smaken, men kommer å andra sidan mer i eftersmaken. Innan dess är det mörk choklad, karamell, lakrits och kaffe som tar överhanden. En mycket bra porter.

(Bottle). Pours a black-brown with persistent light tan head. Flavor is fairly roasted and mild with hop notes. Chocolate is not as abundant as stated. Overall very nice but not a standout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone taestee (52) - USA - OCT 16, 2013
Wow. This is like drinking chocolate milk with alcohol. Beware the massive fluffy tan head that will form no matter what you do. Aroma is of coffee as is taste. Lots of dark chocolate also. Incredibly complex. Really freaking good beer. Quevillon (3155) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 14, 2013
500 ml bottle purchased at The Craft Beer Outlet in Philly on June 20, 2013. Very dark brown, medium head. Aroma of chocolate and licorice, notes dry yeast. The taste is a bit the same, with notes of wild fruits, sour and dry licorice aftertaste. It is robust like a gorilla!

Thick brown black with nice lacing. Medium chocolate caramel, malt, toast aromas. Medium bodied, milk chocolate, roasted malt and caramel flavors, but there is no sweetness or cloying texture here...complex but still sessionable. Jow (4028) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Sunday night brew for ALCS. Pours deep brown with nice head. Light nose of fresh brownies. Tastes of bitter chocolate, roasted malts, RC cola, some earth, and licorice. Medium bodied and solid. haukur (1991) - Kópavogur, ICELAND - OCT 8, 2013
Dark with a tan head. Malty aroma, some slight chocolate. Some hint of centennial but not much. Incredibly plain porter, nicely done but I dont get the hype. HeistAlmighty (1156) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - OCT 4, 2013
500ml bottle. Very dark colour, big tan head, nice cascade. Vanilla, coffee bean and chocolate aromas, maybe a hint of smoke. Chocolate up front, then roasted malt, espresso finish. Very flavourful. Body feels wet up front, but finishes dry. Overall, very enjoyable beer, excellent porter. MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 30, 2013
dark sepia with puffy cream head. Nose more dank than Old Tom, earthy and bitter but some brownie chocolate to offset. Flavor is more brownie and earth front, bitterness and cake profile growing through mid. The ends coating, full, rich. Very dense for the low abv. Liked it, but not as soft or nuanced as most Maine.
