Poured a dark broown with a long lasting foamy tan head. Roasted malt aroma. Nice thick beer with a great chocolate flavor and a roasty coffee finish. I would let them lock me up in the state pen if I could drink this all day. fivehoursfree (11) - Texas, USA - AUG 2, 2009
Smells fantastic, I can taste the chocolate and a little coffee. Smells of roast. Smooth and easy to drink. My favorite porter. MMMBEERLS (18) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 7, 2007
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle brought back from N.M. from a friend. Aroma is roasted chocolate with a slightly earthy nose. 1/2 inch head stayed with the beer and left great lacing til the end. I think the flavor of this Porter is one of the better out there. It is very silky due to the bottle conditioning I believe. The flavor is roast coffee, chocolate, finished with a hint of bitter sweetness. I could drink 6 of these at a sitting no problem and at 6.4% be pretty happy. I highly reccomend this one to any Porter fan. bb0bbby (2) - USA - DEC 4, 2010 does not count

12 oz. bottle. Pours almost black with ruby highlights and a generous, foamy, tan head. The nose is a blend of coffee, earth, toffee, and chocolate. Medium carbonation with a medium mouthfeel. The palate mimics the nose but with more chocolate and a touch of caramel. Nice earth and light coffee notes. Very light bitterness helps balance the malt sweetness. Medium-short finish. Overall an excellent porter with great balance. Highly sessionable. wchesser (2160) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 8, 2011
This beer hit all the benchmarks I judge a good porter by: chocolate and coffee notes on a roasted malt core, inky brown, full bodied, slightly sweet finish. My first one disappeared it was so drinkable so I had another one to go with my green-chile crusted salmon and mashed potatoes. Great pairing. Unfortunately, the second one came with stinking glassware. Oh well. Great go to porter. Need to see if I can get this in Denver.
