12 oz. can. Dark, opaque brown, with a medium, bubbly, light brown head. The aroma is roasted coffee, molasses, a bit of licorice, chicory, and very light tart cherries. Sweet, with a light roasted bitterness. Medium to heavy body, syrupy, acerbic, and a little harsh. This is a nice, lightly roasted, easy porter.

Can. Opaque brown black pour with thick frothy creamy tan foam. Aroma is malty, tons of molasses, chocolate and caramel, very light roast, light leather. Taste is sweet, malty, mild roast malt acidity which is too bad. Palate is med bodied with good carbonation. Good. csaso (2284) - Missouri, USA - NOV 4, 2015

Can at home. Deep aroma of chocolate cake and sweet coffee. The flavor is overly sweet throughout. Mostly picking up on chocolaty and coffee notes. Kind of one dimensional. Lacks that ashy woody smoky charred flavor of the best porters. The finish is underhopped. Frozer (240) - Illinois, USA - OCT 18, 2015
Black pour, tan head. Chocolate and bread aroma very thick head which retains for awhile. Chocolate hits first. Roasted malts follow. Some lighter Caramel notes detected. Perfect mouth feel for the style willisread (3350) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 9, 2015
