On nitro draft at Trio in Kill Devil Hills it is dark Amber color with a creamy tan nitro head. The aroma is malty with hints of coffee. The taste is coffee and its texture is creamy. Nice coffee finish

john44 (3041) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2017
Bottle. Dark Brown in colour, almost Black, with Deep Red highlights. Very Malty; lots and lots of espresso coffee, bitter-sweet dark chocolate, cocoa powder, roasty malts, hint of liquorice, hint of nuts. Rich, robust. Dry roasty coffee and chocolate malty throughout. Rather one-dimensional, but interesting. A dry porter. Enjoyed this. Nice Beer! (2011-09-24)

northropfrye (3483) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 15, 2016
Dark black body brown head some lacing. Looks nice. Cocoa lactose aroma. Taste is semi sweet some milk chocolate, maybe some dried fruit. But really not very rich or flavourful as you would hope for in a porter. Okay.

mcberko (16969) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 5, 2016
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours black with a reddish tinge and a small tan head. Aroma brings out toasted malt and a touch of dry cocoa. Flavour is quite fruity, with dark fruits, toasted malt and dry cocoa powder. Nicely balanced, with a medium body. Well-constructed porter.

fiulijn (20321) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 5, 2016
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Dark brown color, near black. Some chocolate, some roasted malts, well blended together, but also too mild; mild residual sweetness; not as robust as a Porter is expected to be.
Nice.

Darkish brown with a pale head. Aroma is chocolate, dates, caramel. Medium bodied, thin mouthfeel, slight astringency on the palate. Taste is cheap chocolate, lightly toasted grain.

MiP (15517) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2016
Bottle at KØ16. Good roasted aroma, mild bread note. Almost black colour, seems cloudy. Fruity and bready flavour. Not very roasted, but has a good coffee note. Dry finish.
