Can from a generous trader. Pours black with off white tan head. Nose and taste of roasted chocolate malt, milk sugar, lactose and vanilla bean. Medium body.
12floz can, COD: 07.11.2017, $1.75 unit cost, pint glass. The aroma presents a twang on the usual dark roastedness one expects from a porter. As far as far appearance goes its a dark brown with a head that quickly recedes to a ring. Leathery, slick with molasses taste and a finish that sticks to the back roof of my mouth. It's not bad, but I enjoy many other porters more. OsuStu (280) - - NOV 11, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2017 12 oz can. A deep dark mahogany color with a big toasty brown head. Aroma of coffee, nuts, earth, leather, vanilla, and root vegetables. Some earthy bitterness, molasses, unsweetened chocolate, and roasty flavors. A bit on the heavier side with some chalkiness. Good porter. chucklemation (1764) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - OCT 9, 2017

Can from Binny’s Lincoln Park. Deep brown colour, rapidly vanishing head. Quite a sweet, malty porter. Low bitterness. Small hint of vanilla, some nuts, a bit of toffee. Hint of acridity in the finish. A bit heavy and slightly boozy. Lacks drinkability. tnkw01 (1800) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 22, 2017

Pours dark coffee brown with a substantial, foamy, light cappuccino head. Nicely aromatic - roasted grains, chocolate, slightly sweet. Tastes of coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, with a faint hint of hops in the finish. Definitely on the sweet side. Palate has nice mouth-feel, with a light creaminess. Overall, very American Porter, featuring the sweeter notes, with barely a nod to the part sour heritage - nice beer. Cavie (4808) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 13, 2017
Tap at Pour House. Semi-opaque Pour. Brown with Ruby highlights. Roasted grain aroma. Nutty. Some caramel notes. Sweet flavor. Nutty character, caramel malt. Dried leaves. Finishes light but toasted.
