teamsale (266) - Washington, USA - APR 22, 2017
Bottle pours black with a one finger brown head and light lacing. Aroma is of coffee and bread. Taste is mostly coffee, some light sour bitters, a touch on the grainy side, especially in the aftertaste. Bitterness is mild and the aftertaste is fairly pleasant. Decent.

YantarCoast (1246) - Moscow, RUSSIA - FEB 25, 2017
355ml bottle from Bliznetsy in Moscow. Pours dark brown with as small tan head. Aroma is mild roasted malt, bit of lactose, quite weak. Taste is malt, dark fruit, caramel. Very ordinary beer that tastes like it could have been made by any old brewery.

mribm (462) - Ocala, Florida, USA - JAN 27, 2017
Left a weird aftertaste in my mouth. Other than that it was just okay tasting. I drank it too cold and that kills a lot of flavor. I do expect more from Redhook though. Ive always liked their beers, however this one....not so much.

wlajwl (6595) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - OCT 2, 2016
Aroma is dark malts, mild chocolate and toast. The flavor is chocolate/dark chocolate, dark malts, mild dark fruit and a mix of acidity and slight tartness in the finish.

DwarfeD (3263) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2016
33cl bottle at home. Very dark brown with a medium soapy off-white head. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Subtle bitter and sweet tones. Roasted malts, coffee, subtle smoke, some caramel and hops. Nice.

reebtogi (6138) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 31, 2016
355ml bottle pours almost black in color with a finger and a half of off-white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel with some roasted grains and hints of chocolate and dark fruits. Taste is a caramel and chocolate malty sweetness with a roasted grain and grassy hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied with decent carbonation. Overall, a pretty decent porter that suits the style well and recommended to sample.

Bottled 1/28/16, Enjoyed 6/12/16. Eye-widening coffee smell from the bottle with a hint of toffee and caramel; pours a clear deep brown with some head. Medium body with a delicious yet robust chocolatey, coffee taste throughout layered with equal amounts of cereal and malt. Slightly bitter notes finish the taste, although the beer remains smooth and robust with a rich, roasted character. Certainly somewhere between an English Porter and an Irish Stout, very representative of an American Porter. A delightful introduction to the world of dark beers.

puboflyons (3328) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - APR 29, 2016
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with a bottling date of Feb 11, 2016. Opaque brown pour with a modest, short-lived head. A bit of chocolate malts on the nose and maybe a little scorched butterscotch and soap. Light to medium body but smooth. Same chocolate and dark malt flavors with a mild bitterness but otherwise low hop taste.
