Pours dark mahogany with a small tan head. Aroma is all coffee. Taste is like an espresso with a kick. Nice coffee bitterness with a creamy mouth feel. A delicious porter. geologyguy (1602) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - MAY 30, 2017
great strong coffee smell...taste is smooth and not bitter though... doesn’t even get bitter with warmth (only slightly more)... low complexity though...solid thick mouthfeel. freekyp (2235) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 27, 2017
Nice round smooth body. A little slickness. Deep roast coffee aroma and flavor. Nice roast bean fade. Hops there just enough to balance. Some dark bakers chocolate. kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2017
Can. Pours a clear brown bodied with a small fizzy brown head that left just a touch of lacing. The nose is pretty coffee forward with a nice base of chocolate and roast. The flavor is pretty nice as well, nice bright citrusy coffee up front with a finish that’s a bit sweeter and lingers with notes of chocolate and roast. Medium bodied with just a slight cling and soft fizzy carbonation. I like this one. Ernest (7692) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 17, 2017
Can (Dec 2, 2016 canning).
Head is initially average sized, frothy/fizzy, light brown, mostly diminishing.
Body is dark brown to black.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (roasted grain, stale coffee grounds, unsweetened chocolate, peanuts), with a note of crayons.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
Poor coffee expression and slightly off, aroma-wise. Kinda watery and heading towards bland in the mouth. Tolerable but not very enjoyable.

It pour dark brown. There is a strong coffee aroma. It has a strong coffee flavor with expresso. glennmastrange (2867) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAR 18, 2017
Bottle. Light to moderate roasted and coffee for the malt, faint resin and broth for the hops and yeast, with hints of vanilla. Head is small, frothy, beige, with some spotty lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly sweet, acidic and bitter. Palate is medium, slick, with a lively carbonation. Nothing outstanding other than the coffee, but overall a pretty good Porter. Drjohnrock (805) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 31, 2016

Had bottle while watching the Bills lose... again. Dark roasty coffee and milk chocolate malt aroma. Dark brown with a moderate tan head. Earthy roasty coffee, sweet chocolate, and light ash flavor with a nice roasty bitter finish. Medium body, soft carbonation.
