When a porter is this silky smooth with chocolate undertones, it makes me happy. Right amount of everything. Solid. graham_murphy (701) - - FEB 8, 2015
Delicious porter. Something like an imperial stout. Lots of chocolate, caramel and dried fruit in the malt well balanced against crisp pine and citrus notes from the hops. woodychevy (874) - - JAN 31, 2015
Flight at brewery. Definitely robust. Pours stout-like- thick and dark with a nice beige head. Dissapates to a loose, soapy appearance but has staying power. Good lacing. Usual dark notes on nose and palate- chocolate, coffee, bit of smoke. Decently bitter but not overly- good balance. These boys are definitely into hops- in all styles. Fairly heavy bodied for a porter. Smooths out and mellows as it get warmer. Nice.

Bottle: Deep brown body, appears more solid & black once it’s in the glass. Slightly leathery tan head foams up nicely & sits for a bit before slowly receding, leaving some splotchy lacing behind. Aroma has huge notes of bittersweet baker’s chocolate with undertones of roasted malt, black licorice, mild plum, a hint of smoke, & a very small touch of soy sauce. Nice balance of some earthy hops in the flavor with a kiss of bitterness. Roasted malts lead the way with a large semi-bitter chocolatey tone. Subtle notes of licorice, cacao, soy, & figs hang in the periphery. Getting a lot more coffee bean in the flavor as well, more towards the finish. Not really sweet, but not overly bitter, either, so the balance is pretty solid. Medium-thick body with a substantial creaminess. The roasted dark chocolate gets heavier with time & warmth as the glass goes on. Good stuff. drill111 (2) - West Lawn, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2015 does not count

Cocoa power chocolate mild roasted coffee woody hop aroma with a hint of licorice and booze or fruit. Medium sweet dark chocolate roasted nuts subdued fruit woody mild bitterness unsweetened cocoa finish. Medium body. Soft carbo. Excellent.
