Thanks to Chipalsa for the brew. Nose is light chocolate and grainy malt with a bit of cherry/fruity esters. The nose also had an unidentifiable twang to it. Interesting. Pour was light ruby/dark brown color in the light. Taste is similar with a grainy chocolate malt flavor and some light fruit in the mix. Not too bitter at all. Easy to drink. Not a bad porter but it was lacking more chocolate malt to me. SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - DEC 24, 2011

16 oz. can from Market Basket, Portsmouth, NH. Used an English Pint. Thick, full beige head. Decent retention. Nose is Chocolate and a large amount of grain. Taste has a clean roasted character with hints of molasses and a nice German hop. Well, it reminds me of a German or Euro hop. Medium body, maybe a bit on the thin side. I got to say, I was pleasantly surprised by this. It’s MUCH better than some of the ratings indicate. And the price is a bargain. michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 15, 2011
16oz. Can: Aroma of malt, chocolate, lactose, butter, and diacetyl. Poured dark brown in color with a medium-sized, creamy, dense, brown head that diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Sparkling. Excellent lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet and slightly bitter. Tastes of chocolate, malt, lactose, slight roasting, and a hint of butter. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Malt, roast, chocolate finish. 7%ABV is completely hidden throughout. hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - DEC 5, 2011
pounder from psprings 3/21/11.
a hair darker than typical with a spongy light brown head.
aroma is milky sour, roast, molasses and a little smokey.
weird flavor is a watered down version of the aroma mixed with faded bitter hops, spice and charcoal.
thin bodied with a sharp mouth feel and quenching quaffability... if it tasted good. 5/4/5/2/12

16 oz. can. Pours dark brown, with a light brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, hops, and a bit of smoke. Flavor is chocolate, roasted malt, hops, and caramel. This is quite good, much better than I expected. bobaidan (530) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - NOV 27, 2011
Pours dark brown with a medium head of brown bubbles. Aroma is toffee and a hint of coffee. Thinner in body than expected with a good amount of carbonation. Flavor is mild with some traditional dark malty flavors coming through and just a touch of hop bitterness. Not really an exceptional beer, but easy enough to drink. kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2011
16 oz can. Pours a clear dark brown body with a nice frothy dark brown head that had really nice retention. The nose is slight chocolate malt with some touches of roast, maybe a touch of light hops. A little bit of dry grainy malt as well. The flavor is pretty unpleasant however. Thin, slightly burnt tasting, a good bit of husky grain, minimal bitterness on the back end. Mouthfeel is thin and watery with fizzy carbonation. This tastes a bit more like a Malt liquor with some coloring thrown in than a true Porter. Glad I only picked up a single of this guy. Their summer beer wasn’t nearly as bad as this one. RmmHronek (170) - Greensboro, North Carolina, USA - NOV 23, 2011
This beer pours a dark coke color with a tan head. It has weak head retention. Despite being from Narragansett, this porter is great. It’s hugely drinkable and has a decent palate with great body and mouth feel. Lots of bang for your buck on this one! LyndaNova (532) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 15, 2011
Cold 16oz can: Pours a dark brown with ruby highlights and a medium sized, creamy tan head that leaves lacing. Aroma is of smokey malts and chocolate with some molasses. Taste is of smokey malts well blended with subtle, grassy hops. Medium bodied and smooth, with ample carbonation. Ending is of coffee with caramel and maple notes.
