ROGUE (2216) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - OCT 1, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a big light tan head that falls quickly. Smell is sweet and chocolatey with a hint of hops. Roasted malt flavor with moderate hop bitterness. Nice balance of malt and hops. Light bodied with a dry roasty coffee-like finish.

pours clear light brown with a decent moka head, some retention. nutty, roastiness, grassy, hint of minerals. moderate carbonation, light body - not watery, nice herbal finish. sort of classic but falls a bit short. jrodooo5 (1754) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - JUN 18, 2013
A nice deep dark pour with a mocha head that quickly fizzles without much lacing. Th aroma has a great coffee aroma with some hints of chocolate. The taste is roasty and finishes a touch bitter - very true to porter form. This a good solid example of the style! It’s a touch thin in body but tasty nevertheless! magsinva (1493) - Virginia, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Bottle from TWM sterling - pours pitch with cream head. Aroma is coffee and woodsmoke. Taste is on the watery, bitter, dry end of the spectrum. Overall, drinkable but like drinking ashes, with the dryness. snoworsummer (6388) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 18, 2013
From a bottle. Pours black with a foamy tan head. Medium body and low carbonation. Tastes slightly bitter, slightly sweet. Coffee nutty flavor. Smells roasted.

Bottle. Pours deep, dark brown with thick, frothy beige head; good retention and some lacing. Aroma is roasted and chocolate malts, caramel, toffee, earthy hops, figs, raisins, and some woody notes. Flavor is roast malts forward with supporting earthy hops, dark fruit esters, chocolate, and light toffee; dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation. 5000 (6900) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle:   Dark brown, ruby or garnet hues, moderate to large frothy light beige head, spotty lacing.   Roasty nose, semi-sweet, cocoa and some chocolate, along with some lactose.   Moderately hopped on the tongue,
remains a bit sweet (sweeter than most), with a nice roasted background mixed with a bit of dark chocolate or cocoa.   Nice!   I like this in that its not overly hopped.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, although it does
coat well.   Slight ash on the finish, remains roasty with some bakers chocolate like background.   Fairly tasty! Imaena (2359) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - APR 27, 2013
Bottle. This porter has some nice roasting and liquorice flavors going on. Worth a 6er. GnarlyGnome (673) - Fairfield, Ohio, USA - APR 14, 2013
Draft: dark brown, almost black, with a tan head. Like roasted chocolate... Aroma and flavor. Good, but nothing to write home about. VALIS (235) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Roasted malt smell, a little chocolate. Very smooth, crisp Porter without giving up taste. Not watery, just balanced.
