Strong hints of coffee with nodes of milk chocolate to follow.
From a presentation stand point it is beautiful, pitch black body and a tan head. The smell reminds me of putting my nose into a bag of ground coffee.

On draft at Nobi Public .. . Pours a very deep brown black .. . Medium foam .. . Deep roasted malts and black earth .. . Very well balanced porter .. . . Yeah? Rock and roll is fast, you know? If all goes according to plan, I could be in rehab next Thursday. Tuesday week, I’ll be living on an island with a small Indian boy. Strykzone (7586) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 4, 2013
A big rich tan head slowly fades but never completely so. A roasty coffee aroma. Coffee and roasted notes dominate but dry powdeted chocolate can be tasted. Hops enhance nicely with fairly big bitterness and citrus. This is right down the middle for an American porter. Nicely done. dfinney23 (3395) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Really nice porter with no extra bells or whistles. Mild bitter hops compliment the sweet chocolatey malt. hayduke (5616) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 2, 2013
This was sent to me by Strykzone. Thanks Dave. Poured dark brown, almost black and raised a very robust and long lasting tan head that left good lacing. The nose is roasted malts with coffee, some chocolate, and some citrus hops. Medium to bold in body, and with a rich creamy mouthfeel. The flavor is very rich and well balanced between the coffee, chocolate, and bittering and flavoring hops. Finish is flavorful, dry, and bitter. Excellent porter.

The darkest of beers. The tan head lasts longer than you do. The aroma hints at complexity begging you to distinguish between the rich malt, caramel, maple, chocolate, and healthy dose of hops, whose bittering power keeps all that nasty sweetness in check. Its a full bodied, full flavored malt beer, but bitter enough to be good... very good in fact. The only mystery is it leaves a clean glass. Beerenberger (1605) - Fischer, Texas, USA - DEC 17, 2012
Aroma of roasted malt, meat, coffee, and chocolate. Pours a deep black with a none lasting tan head and minor lacing. The taste is roasty, meaty, slightly bitter coffee, a hint of sweetness and a nice bitterness in the finish. Medium- full body with medium carbonation. Overall, a very robust and enjoyable porter. bleeng (1682) - Seattle still not near Beersel., Washington, USA - APR 19, 2013
Bomber. Pours black and thick with a small tan head. Big coffee/chocolate/roasty nose-nice. Taste is the same with a full rich body. Just a bit of a fade on the end. Well done for a young brewery. rougeau13 (3158) - Richmond, Texas, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Pretty much black with a big tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roast, and light coffee. Big bitter coffee and roast taste with some slight sweetness. Medium bodied. Excellent porter. dyetube (1378) - Hurst, Texas, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Bottle from Specs. Pours black with a thin khaki head. The aromas are chocolate, roasted coffee, toasted nuts. The mouthfeel is slightly watery and dry with a medium body and good carbonation. Cheers!
