UPDATED: NOV 16, 2017 Draft at Crystal City Sports Pub. It poured black with a tan head and fair lacing. It has a roasted malt aroma with notes of coffee and light cocoa with some spiciness on the tongue. A very nice Porter. e6stock (2) - Virginia, USA - SEP 4, 2017 does not count
Rich, thick and chocolaty. Color and head mean nothing to me in a brew. Just taste matters. This tastes great! Padedze (49) - - JUN 11, 2017
Purchased in Washington DC (the brew shop) May 2017. Great coffee chocolate aroma. Cola brown but no head. Light carbonation. Rich flavor. Really nice.

Malt on the tongue. Finished clean with a solid amount of bitterness.
Pours a deep brownish black on tap with bubbly tan head that leaves good lace. Aroma of nice dark roasted malts and slight earth. Taste follows, a solid porter, don’t really get the rye. Moderate bitterness, easy drinker. OnTheTrail (593) - Virginia, USA - JAN 17, 2017
Pours black, big Brown head. Aroma is strong coffee and chocolate. Taste is similar , more spice. Mouthfeel is very carbonated, creamy. Strykzone (7714) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2017
12 ounce can from nimbleprop. Deep colors. Black and amber. A rocky tan head leaves heavy lacing. In the aroma I get something like pine that leads. Chocolate and roast notes. The flavor begins with very big roast but milk chocolate drifts in. And then dry bitter bakers chocolate. Some rye spice, too. A rich feel. Ron (4213) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 16, 2016
Can from Dan H. Poured dark brownish black with off-white to light tan head. Aromas of rye, roasty, chocolate, spice. Tastes of nice rye, dark chocolate, roast, coffee, grains. Medium body with a dry finish. Nicely done on the rye. Thanks for the trade Dan. JDBaker11058 (2375) - Maryland, USA - OCT 8, 2016
appearance: very dark brown, short creamy medium tan head. aroma: pretty typical porter aromas--chocolate, coffee, general roast; there’s just a hint of pepper and pine underneath. taste: roasty coffee, dark chocolate, brown bread, hint of toasted vanilla bean, with an undertone of peppery rye. finish: dry and roasty, lingering dark chocolate, pine, and a bare hint of spice; palate is smooth and creamy, just a hint of carbonation. notes: Solid porter. Rye didn’t come through quite as much as I’d hoped, but it was still excellent. Sampled on draft at the brewery, then later from a can.
