Translucent brown body with a minimal off-white head. Lightly spicy nose with notes of debittered malt and cocoa. Semi-sweet, chocolatey flavor with some balancing acidity suggesting plums and cooked dark fruits. A medium-bodied, well-balanced porter. Decent overall.

brings a standard amount of the malts with a flavoring of caramel and low hops flavor. A nice assortment but with a slight astringent flavor.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2010 The aroma is coffee, alcohol, chocolate, wet paper, and burnt malt. The appearance is dark brown with a foamy head. The taste is a little like the aroma and it’s very astringent. The palate is thin for the style. Overall this is not to good but drinkable.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very laced glass, aroma of sugar and milk chocolate. Flavor is incredibly soapy and very bitter hops. It looks like a Guiness, but is not nearly as pleasant. I wish I had a sip of someone else’s glass as opposed to having to drink my own bottle. From Woody’s Smokes and Brews, Nashville, TN.

This beer is soapy, bitter, malty, hoppy, very dark. Loads of lacing all over glass!! Is it normal for porters to be soapy? Feels like it leaves soapy suds all over palate.

Bottle at ChrisOs ’Blue Ridge Mountains Of Virginia’ tasting. Very very dark brown, lasting beige head. Quite hoppy for a porter. OK, fairly hoppy, some decent malts, some hops. It’s a black IPA. Decent, in fact more than decent.

22 oz. bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours dark brown in color with a small beige head. The aroma has roasted malt, dark dried fruits, bittersweet chocolate and a touch of coffee. The flavor is a bit more toasted than the nose, dark chocolate, dark fruits with a mildly bitter finish. Decent.
