A nice brown body with a tan head that had some retention and a little lace. Aroma had a nice mix of roasted and chocolate malts as well as a nice smoke note. Flavor seemed well balanced, but leaned ever so slightly towards the sweet chocolate malts. Finish was smooth and slightly dry. It was light on the palate, but still enjoyable.
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 (1908) - 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 (1199) - 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. john44 (3048) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2017
