malrubius (2720) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Bottle from Table and Vine. Room temp. Blackish with lasting tan head and lace. Heady is a little noisy when pouring but still seems to last okay. 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. For some reason it didnt smell great when I opened it, but...well, its almost gone.

after4ever (7808) - Brier, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2015
500. Pours a murky dark ebony with a loose creamy tan head. Big roasty sweet nose, impressively dimensional aromatics for the ABV. Dark earthy notes and soft chocolate. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Roasty sweet earthy chocolate mid palate. Beautifully balanced and cohesive; body is big enough for complexity but light enough for refreshment. Has lots of flavor and avoids the pitfalls of simplicity and boredom that too often trap porters. Wonderful beer.

SparhawkII (7) - - DEC 31, 2014 does not count
1 pint bottle from Sherbrooke liquor. Pours to a dark tan, long lasting head. Nose of coffee, chocolate, and nuts. Pitch black pour and initial taste yields primarily coffee flavours with chocolate undertones. Carbonation is just right and the finish goes on forever with the same chocolate and coffee. There is something else there as well... Perhaps earthy? In any case, a very fine Porter. Especially on a cold winter night.

Pint bottle at Binnys. Midnight black. Good head, lingers well. Coffee prevalent on the nose. Sweet camel as well. Wonderful flavor, caramel, bread, and coffee. Would definitely drink again.

GTAEgeek (2082) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 18, 2014
Sample at Ale Alpharetta. Black, with a medium, bubbly, tan head. Great nose of coffee, chocolate, molasses, pumpernickel, and anise. Very sweet, sticky, syrupy, and thick. Nice, mellow, coffee-forward beer.

Cybercat (5390) - Georgia, USA - DEC 18, 2014
Pours deep, warm sable with a nice light tan head. Rich aroma has roast coffee, chocolate, toasty malt, molasses, even licorice tones. Flavor starts with roast malt and adds quality coffee, semi-sweet chocolate, licorice, and even shy hoppy notes to a bold and indeed regal mix. Firm texture has fizz to spare. Fit for a king!

Keir (183) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 8, 2014
Deep brown with soft light tan head. Nose of roasty malts, hints of coffee and chocolate. Tastes of dark roasted malts, chocolate, a bit burnt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
