UPDATED: JAN 31, 2017 Bottle. Dark pour with a small head. Nice aroma of milk chocolate infused with coffee. Flavor of toffee, coffee, raisins, and ash. Creamy and thin on the tongue. This doesnt suck! Very pleasantly surprised at how much i liked this

Sweet deep toffee, sticky aroma. Pours dark brown with some foam. Medium mouth feel with some malts. Good taste, not great. Malts, barley, but only lightly spiced. Tap.

Bottle. Hop and chocolate aroma. The porter is a bit bitter with notes of hop, spice, nutmeg, cacao and citrus residue. Good balance and body just a lack of flavor and punch rescind it.

Aroma - nice aroma of chocolate and marshmallow. Slightly nutty. Appearance - black body. The head is beige and starts at about 1/2". The head settles into a foam. Good lacing. Taste - has some coffee, slight roast, some nut and a bit of marshmallow. Palate - medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, slightly bitter finish.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a translucent brown color with a big rocky tan head. Sweet roasted malt aroma. Roasted malt flavor has notes of cocoa and coffee. Some smoky notes as well. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Spicy hop finish is subdued, yet tasty.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7879) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2015
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a small foamy tan head that left no lacing. The aroma was cola, wood, anise and cherry. The flavor was toasty malts, dryish, woody and had hints of anise and cherry. Long finish. Medium body. Meh.

12oz bottle gifted by AirForceHops. Thanks, Chris! Freshest by date notched is March, guess I better hurry. Pours cola brown with a beige head. Aroma is caramel, mild spent coffee grinds. Taste follows, with some grassy bitterness to balance.
