Bottle. Poured a dark brown with an averaged sized frothy light brown head that was mostly lasting and had excellent lacing. The aroma was light of roasted caramel malts, a sort of barnyard scented yeast and strong notes of coffee and dark chocolate. It tasted slightly sweet and quite flavorful with notes of coffee and caramel at first and then a bitter sweet chocolate/coffee flavor engulfed the taste buds and stayed with you for a nice little while. Mouthfeel was medium to full in body and a little oily in texture with a nice soft carbonation. Overall a nice straight forward Porter.
12 oz canChocolate and malt smells. Pours very dark brown qwith tan head that dissipates and some pronounced lacing. Big round coffe and chalk tastes with some malt sweetness and a dry sour finish. Really well balanced. Low carbionation and an oily mouthfeel. Very good porter. kdoglol (2) - - JUL 29, 2017 does not count
This is surprisingly tasty. Very easy drinking porter that's not to heavy.

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.

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 (1420) - 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 (3392) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2017
