3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle poured into a shaker style pint glass. Aroma is caramel and roasted malt, slight raisin, and faint smoke. Maybe a little nutty. Pours with a few soda-like bubbles and retains no foam or lacing. Taste is malty caramel with a dry roasted malt finish and hints of raisins and smoke. Decently long finish for a beer of moderately low strength. Palate is well balanced - between the medium low carbonation and roasty dryness and the caramel/raisin sweetness. The smoke is still present but not in sufficient quantity to add or detract from this beer. Overall very tasty for a porter of this strength but not something I would go out of my way to try again.
Bottle. Wood, cherry, chocolate malt, and fresh hay aroma. Black with giant tan head. Mildly sweet cherry chocolate malt, and moderately bitter/astringent fresh hay flavor. Okay body. On the dry side. hershiser2 (3591) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 2, 2017
Bomber from Total Wine, Fredericksburg. Pours nearly black with a beige head. Aroma is cocoa powder, nuts, some sort of green vegetation? Flavor is roasted malt, a tangy something or other that just doesn’t seem like it belongs, and finishes quite thin. Carbonation is way overdone. I’m wondering if this is an old bottle. Something just seems off. Lore (2866) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 7, 2017
beautiful appearance of dark brown colour and large stable creamy beige head; aroma of roasted nuts, cocoa powder and some unripe plum, as well as licorice notes; taste is the same with dark chocolate and sourish coke-like notes; good porter andrewje41 (4161) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - FEB 3, 2017
22 oz bomber, Xfinity Arena, Everett. A beer I’ve seen around, but never had a good enough reason to pull the trigger. Hockey is a good reason. Local brews. God damn I want an NHL team. Pours a near black with a tan fizz head. Very cola pour. Roasted malt, soft chocolate aroma. A pounder of a porter for sure. A bit dusty on the malt side. Slight vanilla. Cocoa.

Pours cola brown with an off-white creamy head that lingers. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, and some fig. Roasted malt flavor with chocolate, and dark fruit. Decent beer.

Poured from 22 oz. bottle.
Translucent dark brown with a light tan head and good lacing.
Aroma of roasted malt, lactose, decomposing leaves, off fruit and toffee.
Taste of sour cream, roasted malt, dry leaves, lactose and rotting cantaloupe. There are positives to the flavor, but something is definitely off.
Medium/light body and medium/low carbonation with a slick mouthfeel.
I tried this 5 years ago and thought I had hit a bad bottle. [Note to self. Never buy this again.]

Bottle 12fl.oz. @ Craig’s House - Edinburgh.
[ As Scuttlebutt Porter ].
Clear medium brown - red amber color with a small to average, frothy - fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, sweet malt, roasted, dark malt. Flavor is moderate to light heavy sweet and moderate bitter with a average to long duration, roasted, fruity malt, dark malt, thin. Body is medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft. 
On draft at SeaTac airport. Dark brown and, well, porter looking. A small off white blotchy layer of foam that leaves a little droopy lacing. This is earthy and roasty with grain. Some chicory effects along with gentle fruit. It is pretty much a classic American porter. The fruit becomes melons and mangoes and the roast fades some. The finish is a little thin And somehow a little fishy, almost like an oyster stout. And the final sips give some hop based bitterness. tricksta_p (5017) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2016
Bottle at home. Aroma is dark malt, plenty of chocolate, coffee, roast, touch of fruits with an unexpected but welcome hint of funk. Flavour is light sweet and bitter. Body is medium. Fairly light but pleasant Porter, good chocolate roast and some funk. graham_murphy (695) - - OCT 9, 2016
Took me a while to get through it for some reason - maybe I was off. Quite a thin porter with a decent blend of liquorice, coffee, stewweggdss caasdfbsgj,mfdzdgmbdaadgh,,
