(En fût à la source): Étrange aspect ranci qui accompagne le chocolat au lait et les grains rôties. La texture rend l'expérience tout de même agréable, spécialement avec la volatilité du désagrément. Finhead (1814) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - OCT 24, 2017
Deep brown pour with a tiny, white head. The aroma has strong coffee and dark chocolate. It has a full body with smooth texture and average carbonation. The taste is mildly sweet yet roasted with coffee-flavored finish. balloonbuffoon (605) - - SEP 30, 2017
From a growler to a nonic glass, appearing black-brown in color with a small light brown head. Nose consists of milk chocolate with whiffs of roasted nuts every now and then.This porter is sweet for the style with carob upfront. The finish is roasty with a latent sweetness. Taken all together this is decent example of the style, but it doesn't impress either. arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUN 21, 2017
Pour out of crowler, dark brownish black pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of cocoa, coffee, toasted malt into some nice coffee, a bit intense roast. Taste was a mix of roast, coffee, earth, spice into some more roast, almost smoky malt, finishing cocoa, slightly dry. koleminer20 (3976) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUN 19, 2017
On draft at Narrow Gauge. The pour is a darker brown color with a light white head and a good bit of lace as it falls down. The aroma is bitter and roasty. There is a light chocolate to this one. It’s mostly roasty with a light bitterness and a typical American style. Light hop. the flavor is more roasty and chocolatey. It’s light and has a little metallic to it. Good and balanced. The mouth feel is light and watery with a hint of chocolate and a good carbonation with a bitter finish. Not bad.

Draft to taster at Narrow Gauge. Looks good; a cloudy dark brown with foamy beige head. Smells of dark malt, dark chocolate, and roast. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and moderately bitter from the roast. A bit intense, but enjoyable. phaleslu (10670) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 5, 2017
32 oz. crowler from the brewery. Pours a deep, dark, nearly opaque coffee brown with a finger of tan head that settles into a ring and a bit of film. Smooth, earthy, and mildly roasty, with hints of coffee, dark chocolate, earth, and toast. Light-bodied, with modest carbonation. Doesn’t sacrifice richness or robustness anywhere. Just a nice, straightforward, well executed porter. Drake (14078) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 18, 2016
Keg at the brewpub, 12/16/16. Dark brown, large foamy tan head, good retention. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, lactose. The taste is roasted, chocolate and a mild lactic twang. jandd1983 (4604) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - AUG 3, 2016
Tap at Cugino’s. It poured a dark brown/black color with a dark brown head. The aroma was of roasted malts, chocolate, molasses and a hint of licorice. The taste was similar to the aroma with more rich chocolate, molasses, nice earthy roast, with a bitter hop spice on the finish. Awesome. Strykzone (7659) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 17, 2016
Sampled at Cuginos. Looks like a porter. Roast and lactic. Earth and gentle citrus. And a bit of singy bitterness at the finish. A nice take on a classic.
