Malty smokey aroma. Favor of burnt coffee, malt and smoke. Some vegetable tastes come through. Not my favorite Port Brewing beer. ScottyP (425) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - DEC 2, 2010
Pour is black with medium tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, some chocolate. Taste is roasted malt all the way through with a slight dry, bitter finish with the hops. Thin bodied with above average carbonation. Very drinkable sirpsycho (396) - Murrysville, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2008
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown, almost black, small tan head. Aroma is malt and chocolate. Flavor is malt, roast, some smoke and chocolate on the dry, slightly bitter finish. GriffinAvenue (396) - Winchester, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 30, 2008
Bottle. Deep black color. Tannish ringed head. Licorice, malty. Roasty but not overdone. Dates / raisin hints. Thin, slightly watery in body and taste. 1-part flavoring with nothing distinctive on exhale or finish. Hoped for better given what these guys normally do but this is a relative disappointment DrinkinWell (389) - - NOV 23, 2013
Pours black with caramel colored head. Notes of coffee and bitter chocolate. Smooth, creamy finish. Nice beer!

Pours from big bottle a dark brown with a yellow halo, biege head. Aroma of brown sugar and soy sauce. Flavor of tamari, and chocolate hides a very light body. Roasty toasty nose and a finish that dries out with some hop and alcohol notes. UselessGdTaste (365) - Long Beach, California, USA - MAY 11, 2008
It’s like a stout lager. I was really astounded by the amount of deep chocolates present while being light like a lager. A very surprising beer for sure. Serve this one cold. ironchefscott (357) - portland, Oregon, USA - APR 26, 2008
