12 oz bottle into a tulip. Thanks Max! Pours a deep black with a finger of khaki foam that fades into thin edging. Nose is rather smokey with notes of chocolate, coffee, and caramel. Taste is initially smoked malts but it then transitions into sweet chocolate and bitter coffee beans. Smooth and robust. Medium bodied and does a great job hiding the abv. A really solid no-frills porter. Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Growler fill from Aw Shucks. Poured a black brown, slight head. Aroma is coffee and chocolate. Full mouthfeel, fairly big, a bit more roast than expected, bordering on stout territory. Some faint fruitiness on the finish, undefined, but complementary of the malt show. Enjoyable brew, felt like I hadn’t had a beer like this in a long time. Liked this more than the score would indicate I think. ads135 (5031) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 11, 2014
This was a pleasant, quietly powerful porter. Rich and chocolatey with ample coffee notes. k0mpsa (3066) - Tuusula, FINLAND - JAN 7, 2014

Dark brown, can’t see through glass. Little remaining head. Roasted malt, chocolate and coffee smell. Malty and somewhat bitter. Full body with average carb and small bubbles. Strong all-around porter.

On tap at Commercial Tap House on 06/28/2011. Dark black body with a medium frothy light brown head. Sweet fruit and roast aroma. Slightly tart roast and fruit flavor with a dry finish. Medium light body with moderate carbonation. jde123 (775) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 27, 2013
A really good porter! It doesn’t have the overly chocolate/caramel/sweetness that oftens ruins other porters. Great stuff. ganache (6056) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle. Nose of light coffee and roast malt, chocolate, cocoa, light tang. Pours dark brown-black with a rocky tan head. Taste light-medium sweet, very low bitterness, low tang but a nice feel of twist/semi-pucker in the mouth. Roast and chocolate as above. Fullish body. Very solid double porter, hides its alcohol well. floydslip (422) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 12, 2013
Opaque tootsie roll brown beer with a medium foamy beige head that is a bit darker around the perimeter. Roasted nose of caramelized sugar, candied nuts, and a hint of chocolate. Flavor is actually quite mild for a porter, but that doesn’t mean it’s boring. It has a light toasty malt bitterness followed by some deep chocolate, and then ends with a subtle sourness. None of the flavors is particularly strong, but they offset each other nicely. A good porter for people who prefer lighter beers or those who want a change of pace. g6736 (7) - Warwick, New York, USA - DEC 12, 2013 does not count
Nice porter with chocolate notes it’s slightly sweet. Had it on Draft at Daniel O’connells in Alexandra VA.
