Poured up dark brown, near black, with a thick tan head that disappeared quickly leaving lots of lacing. Aroma is mild, light malts, coffee and chocolate. Taste is coffee, lightly sweet mild chocolate and very smooth. Slightly bitter, but smooth finish. Thick and rich. Nice porter. ilovedarkbeer (2748) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2016

Not enough toasty, roasty flavors for a porter IMO. Not a bad beer for sure but didn’t hold up to others in the flights I tried. Good body but very neutral flavor profile. More like a great lager than a porter.
