12 oz bottle; clear, dark brown with thin dark tan head; light, dry roast with a little chocolate and dry oat; drinks thin and bone dry; more roast than your average porter, so I’m digging that; flavor profile is a little light though; some more body too and this would be killer GranvilleTim (1857) - Granville, Illinois, USA - DEC 7, 2010
Dark pour with a light tan head. Aroma-roasted malt. Taste- little creamy, low carbonation, roasted malt, a bit thin! Little sweetness, not much. Nice lacing. Jakebra (22) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 23, 2010
Roasty. Nutty. Where’s the porter? Tastes like an overbearing brown ale. Oh well, not offensive in any way. twindadplus2 (736) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 17, 2010
Deep reddish black with no real head to speak of. Bittersweet chocolate aroma with a hint of caramel. Dark roasted malt flavor with a nutty coffee undertone. Medium bodied with a creamy, bitter finish. A pretty satisfying porter. Scubatrip (610) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - AUG 29, 2010
On tap at the brewpub, pours black with a sweet chocolate and malty nose. Taste is bitter chocolate, porter-esque, a bit watery. Ok beer, maybe the best they had this weekend, but nothing to go out of your way for.

Pours a clear, very dark brownish red with a thin beige head. Aroma is sweet caramel, chocolate, coffee, grainy malt, buttery roasted nuts and an odd toasty wheat bread note. Flavor is sweet, light roast coffee, chocolate, roasted nuts and a roast note that waits till the finish to show up along with some light metallic notes. Palate is light bodied, slightly creamy on entry turning pretty dry fairly quickly. Not bad, pretty tame for a porter though. rubbishystuff (2537) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 19, 2010
This was really not terribly exciting. We really need to try better on this. Serving: Tap jbuzz (838) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 16, 2010
Bitter aftertaste and tinny all along. Full body but not at all pleasent to drink. kbutler1 (1382) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 26, 2010
Draft. Ever so slight coffee notes coming from this. Dark brown with slight tan head. Bitter ending. Not really a good porter. sickboy79 (66) - USA - JUL 24, 2010
Tap. I enjoyed this beer. It had a nice rich color and nice matly taste with lots of coffee/chocolate notes to it in the aftertaste. My favorite beer of what they had on tap during my visit.
