UPDATED: MAR 7, 2018 Fantastic Porter! Period. Great initial flavor, great follow through. Not heavy, not overly bitter. Enjoyed it at Hawk & Dove on Capitol Hill. koleminer20 (4473) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - FEB 28, 2018
From notes. On draft at Capital Ale House in Richmond with Dick on January 30. The pour is a thin and watery medium brown with a hefty bit of ruby shining through. The head is thick and white with a nearly solid lace left that falls down. This looks like a nitro head, even though it isn’t. The aroma is pretty messy. There is a metallic maltiness up front and a light chocolate behind that with a hint of alcohol. It’s bland other than that. The flavor is much of the same. There is a bit of alcohol and a light maltiness. A hint of chocolate comes through beyond that, but this is just messy and watery. The mouth feel is lighter bodied and watery with a sharper carbonation and a lingeringly messy chocolate and grainy malt on the back end with more alcohol than there should be. This one is a mess.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2018 Bottle. It poured brown with a tan head. The roasted malt aroma has notes of chocolate and coffee. It is semi sweet and thick on the tongue. Nice AirForceHops (8403) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 9, 2018
12 oz. purchased at El Barrio Tequila bar, Holland, PA. Pitch black color. Nose of chocolate, raisins, roast. Flavor is fairly rich with semi-sweet chocolate, light coffee, and coffee bitterness that lingers pleasantly. Shows me a slightly creamy mouth feel, and bolder body for a porter. Bitterness comes forward as it warms. Overall, real solid. Iznogud (5078) - CROATIA - JAN 25, 2018

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2018 standard porter. dark brown. malty, bitter, a bit of cocoa and coffee with a bitter metallic end. bottle. Jabah (800) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - JAN 20, 2018
A lot of roastiness and darker chocolate gives this one a slightly burnt flavor. Balance leans towards the bitter as a porter should....maybe a little too heavily. Wanted to try as many local ones this season to find some new go-tos, but this one probably not making the cut. Capa (3804) - GUAM - JAN 18, 2018
Dark with a brown head. Chocolate, lightly roasted malts, coffee, dark fruits. Medium bodied. Finish is bittersweet. Nice. drjoeng (1497) - SINGAPORE - DEC 1, 2017
7.2%ABV. Imperial porter.
Tapped out dark brown. 35ºSRM.
Nose has dark wheat toast with hint of honey and maple syrup. Nutty aroma, roasty. Hint of old leather funk.
Mouthfeel is full and boozy. Palate has roasted malt, hint of char, fruity with cherry liqueur. Hops are noble.
Finish is long wth charred wood and woody hoppy bitter.
Overall, really good. Full bodied with some really nice complexity in the finish.
