ICEatALAMO (1350) - Troy, Michigan, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle. The pour is black with a thin head. The aroma is nice, malty and roasty, near perfect for this style. The taste is very nice as well. The malt mixes well and a perfect hint of roast. Nails it for a porter. Well done! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TXBadger (2811) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Pours a very nice dark brown with tan head. Cocoa, roasted malt, and nuttiness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a nice roasted malty character.

Ericular (1020) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Pours a dark brown with beige head fading to a ring leaving oily swirls and good lacing. Aroma is chocolate and well roasted malts. Taste is sweet with some lactose up front, then some dried fruit tartness, and then settling into some dark chocolate bitterness. Aftertaste settles on a nice roast bitterness with a touch of the lactose to balance. Complex and enjoyable. Palate is medium bodied, smooth in the middle, and drying out only moderately for the finish. Let it warm and take time to enjoy it.
