On tap with meal. Decent roast aroma. Taste of a slight tobacco, earth and some burnt sugar. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish. Drake (13724) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 14, 2012
16 ounce can. Pours a dark brown color with a thin creamy head. Decent head retention. Aroma of roasted malts with a sweet finish. Fairly faint. The taste is sweet malts, some roastiness, faint fruits and leafy hops. Medium bodied. A bit too sweet but still a solid beer. DocLock (10683) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2012
Pours very dark thick turbid brown, toward black (no ruby here), with 3-finger creamy tan head and copious lacing. Nose is chocolate malt, some definite spicy , peppery, and hoppy hints. Tastes rich, somewhat sweet, witha big chocolate flavor, some carob nibs, roasty chocolate malt, and finishing hints of smokiness and molasses. The hops emerge late, and the palate remains complex and thick and smooth. A wonderful porter. Leafs93 (2305) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Pours deep dark brown with a brown head. Aroma is roasty, dark chocolate and earthy. Taste is sweet with a roasty bitterness on the finish. Medium bodied, better then expected.

a very rich heavy beer, with a dark over toasted malty head a slight bitterness at the end, it looks really well done and the head is nice and creamy. there is a slight burnt that makes it really well drinkable.

Can with Sander at his place. Decent roast aroma, some mild tobacco and cocoa. Medium sweet flavor, some earth, cigar smoke, burnt sugar. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish, modest roast, some dark sugar, light dirty bitterness of earth, mild charcoal. Pretty decent. mcox90 (2088) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 9, 2012
16 oz can. Pours dark brown with some reddish highlights & a creamy 2 finger mocha head. Head slowly gives way to some decent lace. Yummy chocolate malt and vanilla bean aroma which carries through in the taste. Little on the sweet side, but I’m not thinking thats a bad thing. Full creamy palate with soft carbonation. I’ll buy again. Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - JAN 6, 2012

Appearance - Deep brown
Aromas - Chocolate, raisins, malts, cherries
Taste - Cherries, rich malts, chocolate, hops
This porter was among the sweeter ones. Earthy notes on the tongue were too light, and rather sweet with a touch of hops.
Can (16 oz) at World of Beer. Not a bad porter out of the folks from Narragansett. Good roasted malt profile with a nice aftertaste.
