Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 2, 2005
Pours with a dark brown body with red tinting topped by a thin to medium thick head with some lacing. It’s slightly sweet and malty with a slight roasted coffee note and a nice coffeeeish finish. Both the flavor and aroma seem a little weak. Medium bodied and smooth.

berkshirejohn (6759) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2018
On tap at the brewpub. A cola coloured pour with a ring of white head; aroma of chocoalte malt; rather thin in the mouth with a sweet malted chocolate taste; and a caramel finish. Lakcing the bitterness to make this a true porter.

mcberko (19809) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 26, 2016
On tap at Prescott, pours a deep dark brown with a reddish tinge and a small tan head. Aroma brings out light roast and dry cocoa powder. Flavour brings out chocolate upfront, followed by medium roast and a little coffee. A little jagged and messy, but works okay.

arminjewell (9727) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Pour on tap at the brewery, brownish black pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of dark chocolate, roast, hints of earth into a bit of yeast, touch of coffee with a slight dark fruit note. Taste was a mix of cocoa, roast, coffee into some caramel, touch of earthy tones in a slight dark fruit, finishing sweet, slightly roasted.

Bottle @ home, thanks Pim & Amy! Aroma is roast, liquorice, lactose, kastanje, spices, caramel and more. Flavour is roasty caramel, nutty, chocolate, fruity notes and more. Nice.

3.4
Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 22, 2014
Bottle. Clear reddish dark brown pour, thin off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, chocolate, roasted and some coffee. Flavor is quite sweet, roasty malts and quite smooth. A bit thin and a bit too sweet.

Ibrew2or3 (8912) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 2, 2014
On tap at the brewpub in Prescott where it pours with a nice mahogany looking body that has deep red edges and supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up sweetness mixed with chocolate and caramel malts as well as a thin ribbon of dark roasted maltiness. The taste delivers malts and a slight molasses sweetened dark roasted maltiness as well as a pleasing layer of chocolate. It then picks up sweetened coffee and a dash of brownie laced with a wafer thin layer of black licorice. This is a nice robust porter where the above average sweetness is balanced nicely by the roasty malt bill.

Aroma of sweet buttery goodness with some roast. This isn’t a good beer, it is prevalent with a buttery profile. The roast masks it slightly, but it worsens as it warms up. This wasn’t a good one.
