Bottle from Fratto. Smells FANTASTIC. Pours very dark with a tan head. Smells of coffee and malts. Very strong coffee flavor. Fantastic beer. Love it.

Very tasty porter. Not overly espresso taste or overly filling. Great to have with dinner.

Cavie (4837) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUL 9, 2013
Bottle courtesy Fratto. Pours a cloudy maroon color with a light beige head. Aroma is lovely. Espresso beans, chocolate notes, heavily roasted, freshly roasted coffee ground. Flavor is also roasted coffee, bitter notes, chocolate malts. Aroma is better than the flavor. Still very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark brown with a small tan head that fades rather quickly. Huge aroma of fresh coffee, chocolate and toffee. Taste of iced coffee and bittersweet chocolate up front with hints of black liquorice and dark fruit. Somewhat thin on the palate with a bit too much carbonation. Finish is a slightly bitter (but nice) coffee taste that lingers for a few moments. Definitely recommended for the Porter fans out there! Very well done.

First beer I had in Charleston. Deliciously balanced chocolate and coffee character. Rich, rather than sweet.

Cybercat (6214) - Georgia, USA - JUN 5, 2016
Pours opaque coffee brown with a thick tan head. Aroma presents a strong quality coffee note supported by roast malt and toffee tones and a hint of molasses. Flavor delivers roast coffee, roasted malt, toffee and molasses notes, very pleasing. Mouthfeel features firm body and decent fizz. Get on the espresso train!

DConMan (114) - Ballwin, Missouri, USA - JUL 5, 2012
Bought a 12fl oz bottle of this @ The QuarterDeck in Sea Pines Resort (Hilton Head Island, SC) for $5. Poured from the Red/Orange/Yellow Labeled bottle w/ a Palmetto tree on the front into a 12oz Tulip Glass. Has no sign of a freshness date on the bottle.

Aroma- Very roasty and has a very unfamiliar coffee aroma. Must be their local roaster blended into the brew.

Appearance- Pours a .5 finger head that dies almost immediately. Has a deep, opaque brown body and leaves a few suds behind on the glass.

Flavor- Very malty and coffee roast apparent as well. Has a sweet beginning to end taste and a light bitterness level.

Mouthfeel- Light-Medium Bodied, Medium Carbonation, Roasty, and has one of the highest Coffee/Roast endings of any porter I’ve had to this day! Very nice!

Overall Impression- Wow! For not ever hearing about this Porter, the coffee ending was huge! Highly recommend for those porter fans and looks like this one is widely available in SC.

Draft at brewery, nitro. The pour is dark and frothy head. The aroma is rich bold coffee. The taste also has a lot of coffee to it, very nice. Probably one of the better coffee porters out there. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
