Good basic porter. Lower alcohol content wont watee down the taste. Would drink again.
Draft at the Foundry. Pours black with a khaki head. Doesn’t leave much lacing. Huge roasted malt and coffee notes on the nose. Lots of roasted malt on the tongue as well. Has a nice amount of bitterness on the finish. Lovely! tomahawk29 (5) - - JUN 4, 2017 does not count
The initial taste is rather watery and then turns to an oaky bitterness, strong after taste. The smell reminds me of olives, it's pleasant.

Can. Poured black with a thin light tan head. Nose is mellow light roast with vanilla and chocolate. Taste has a even amount of roasted malt, chocolate and vanilla. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry roasty finish. ctipping (2047) - Florida, USA - FEB 6, 2017
12 oz. bottle. Pours a deep brown, not quite black. Smells of chocolate and nutty malts. Some coffee roast behind it. Tastes nicely roasty. Maybe a little oxidation (I found this in the back of my fridge... oops). Nutty brown malts with a coffee roast bitterness in the back end. Medium bodied, if that. Pretty light for a porter. Decent flavor and drinkable. Quick3Beers (1233) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 5, 2017
A brown from a bottle, somewhat burnt molasses smell and herbal schnapps notes in the mouth for some reason, like a coughdrop or jagermeister. Okay beer.
