COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our take on the English classic is a bold, yet easy going black ale. You may taste notes of chocolate, coffee and nutty flavors.

From a 16floz can (no freshness date) bought as a four-pack for $8 to an imperial nonic glass. It appears a medium-dark brown (only medium-dark because red can be seen on the edges). The foam stably rests atop with tight bubbles. Hmm...the aromas of cardboard and charcoal aren't the most enticing, but this is in line with many others for the style. Charred wood, dark chocolate, and spent coffee grounds are flavors that come to mind. This is a gritty full-bodied standard porter. It's not the best, but it's doable. As moment can dictate, there are times when I enjoy this beer. This time I have a more critical take than in prior experiences.

16 oz can, with huge thanks to Greg for the can. A treat to try these guys. A muddy brown pour with a thin fizz head. A soft milk chocolate like aroma. A unique porter here. Delicious for sure. Cool soft nutty malt, milk chocolate, the lightest roasted coffee, slight vanilla, and a late nutty reminder late. I really dig this porter. Drinks nice. Cool, refreshing. Very nice.

16oz can, courtesy of Greg (gregwilsonstl) -- cheers! This is a delicious porter, with a flavor profile somewhere between a brown ale (there’s some caramel sweetness) and a stout (it finishes with a great bitter chocolate bite). Good stuff!

Sampler pours brown with a tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, grains and malts. Taste is nutty, chocolate and coffee.

Can - good size tan foamy head, almost black color, definite big roasty aroma and flavor, some chocolate notes came out as it warmed out, very smooth finish, pretty good overall ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16 oz. can from Craft Beer Cellar - Clayton. Pours a deep cloudy brown with a small khaki head that settles into a ring and the thinnest of film. Some yeast sediment came out from the bottom of the can, adding a little more haze. Notes of chocolate, well done (but not burnt) toast, mixed nuts, earth, tobacco, a bit of fudge in the aroma, and faint brown sugar and rust in the flavor. Light-plus in body, with a smooth, toasty mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Really nice, drinkable offering. Very pleased with this brewery so far and the cans are great.

I found this to be a quite excellent porter. Attractive glass of beer. Good aroma and pleasant flavor. I’ll drink it again.

Acquired a 16 oz. can in a trade. Brewery was not known to me. Can has a very simple yet attractive label. Normal pour - medium carbonation. The flavor and aroma are somewhat dominated by chocolate but the end result is not excessively sweet. Not as heavy in body as some Porters but I thought that was a plus factor. Overall, this is a very drinkable Porter that, even though I’m not a major Porter enthusiast, I’d be happy to purchase if it were available in my area.

Pour is a almost near black with a small tan head. Aroma is a nice char dark malt and some peanut butter. Flavor is more of a bitter coffee and bakers chocolate. Finish leaves a little of the roasted malt on the tongue. This was a fine traditional porter.

On tap at 40 Brews. It poured a brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of roasted malts, some coffee and nuts. The taste was similar to the aroma with more roasted malts, coffee, nuts and some chocolate. Very tasty.
