BOD 5/5/15. Pours pitch black. World class head volume, lacing and retention. Very nice nose of roast, chocolate and a light airy citric hop note. Full bodied, almost to the point of thickness, with a rich creamy texture. Normal carbonation with a hint of effervescence in the middle and a nice burst in the finish. The very good flavor profile is intense, slightly complex and somewhat balanced. It begins with a burst of roast that slowly yields to coffee coupled with a hoppy bitterness. The middle brings a caramel sweetness that is detectable, but fails to balance. As the finish occurs, alcohol is rather evident.

Delicious porter that is phenomenal on the palate! It pours the darkest of browns w/ a thin tan head that leaves lacing. The aroma is subtle yet enticing full of chocolate & roasted notes. The flavor is a whirlwind of chocolate, coffee, & traditional porter bitterness. Its Maine co. So it leaves a bit of its ibus lingering but this is light & creamy w/ the nearly 8% being Undetectable. Excellent!

bigda83 (854) - Jamestown, New York, USA - JUN 8, 2015
Bottle about a month old. Pours a deep black with very thin white colored head. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, nuts, and grain. Flavor followed the nose pretty closely. Medium body and a creamy texture, although on the thin side for a porter. Average carbonation and a long bitter finish. not bad.

katrinaez (1762) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Aroma is amazing. Smells of deep chocolate and coffee. The porter flavor is nice and the mouth feel is good, however the actual taste is missing the coffee and chocolate. Wouldnt have again. Tap

SG111 (1654) - New York, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Bottled 12/16/14. Slightly cold temperature. Pour into tulip. Black with a large frothy tan head. Aroma as you pour it is roasted malts, big chocolate flavor, coffee notes. Really just smells right. The chocolate is fantastic. Flavor is roasted chocolate, tons of it, surprisingly intense coffee, and a great body on it. I mean it is 7.5% which is strong for a porter and the body on it reflects that accordingly. Not thin or watery at all. 5 months old and hops held up well. As it warms, it gets better. chocolate richer, coffee notes a little sharper. Another amazing beer from Maine.
