SpongeRuiner (1114) - Michigan, USA - JAN 5, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Pours a dark dark color with a nice looking dark brown head. A deep chocolate aroma. A decent easy drinking chocolate flavor. Really like a cocoa puff flavor as the basis here. Pretty drinkable.

chucklemation (1594) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Poured on tap at the Rochester Mills Brewery. Has a jet black color with a slight off-white head. Both the aroma and the flavor are all malts. The beer claims a hop finish, but I dont detect that. Body feel is decent. This is a pretty good porter.

Campy877 (189) - Michigan, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Draft. Pours a almost black color with a thick muddy head. Aroma of dark chocolate and coffee. Disappointing on the taste. Almost tastes burnt ad a heavy note of hops at the finish. Not what I expected of a porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Silphium (3199) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - AUG 15, 2011
On tap at the brewpub, Rochester. Opaque dark brown body, thin cream head. Nose of roasted malts and coffee beans, dry and rich. Woody, roasty body with coffee, dark chocolate, and soft notes of brown sugar that impart just a hint of sweetness into this overall dry beer. Delicate, rich flavor profile. Quite nice.

Braudog (6632) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Draft pint at the brewpub. Standard-looking porter with a tan top. Good all around drinker, with a chalky chocolate tone as the leading actor. Nice balancing finish. (#3826, 1/27/2010)

hopscotch (11030) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 10, 2006
Draft... GABF 06... Black with a small, tight, beige head. The aroma and flavor are of cola, coffee and chocolate with some caramel and nutty notes. Good balance provided by charred bitterness. Medium to full-bodied and sandy with fizzy carbonation. Lengthy, arid finish.
