12oz bottle. Pours a dark near black with slight head. Aroma is chocolate and grain, pretty strong. Taste is coffee, roasted malt, cocoa. Fairly tame, but still pretty decent and very drinkable.
bottle @ Jungle Jim’s / Cincinnati OH --- Aroma of musty toasted malt. Near black color, deep tan head, hanging strands of lace. Taste is lightly toasted malt that moves through light fizz to a quick sharp dip to bittering, followed by a gradual return to bittersweet malt in a long finish. Interesting, light, as a porter should be, easy-drinking. Cunningham (7850) - Halden, NORWAY - MAY 15, 2017
Black as the night with a frothy tan head (that gives in a bit to fast). Ok intensity in the aroma. Medium + body and smooth carbonation level. Ok sweetness with a fine bitterness to back it up. A bit oily texture. Cold coffee, chocolate, toffee, roast and bready flavor. Ok complexity..migwell (365) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 1, 2017
[Bottle from a trade with Sigmund]
Let it warm up and poured the bottle into a 16 oz.Belgian ale glass. The foam filled the glass to the brim and then dissipated to a creamy film atop the deep brown brew. Malty cocoa aroma. The flavor was disappointing, roasty, milky and pretty mild, a bit burnt and bitter at the end, but in general underwhelming. Thin bodied and mildly carbonated... nothing to really dislike here, but not much to please either. gripweed57 (2305) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 28, 2017
Translucent cola brown color. Large frothy tan head. Mild roasted malt nose is somewhat subdued. Soft, roasted malt flavor has notes of chocolate and toasted nuts. Caramel and coffee in mid taste. Subtle spicy hops in finish. Tasty. ludhaber (126) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 25, 2017
Southern Tier has been brewing some good beer. Love their IPA sampler. This beer is quite tasty as well. Just enough chocolate malt to balance the sweetness. Hops is in the background. Very tasty.

Not as malty as some porters, smooth and robust. Deep, dark brown. March madness 2017 retinadoc (236) - - DEC 27, 2016
Bottle. Anemic flavor and aroma compared to the current crop of potent Imperial Stouts and truly "robust" porters. Medium carbonation. Innocuous, but rather bland. Distant coffee and malt flavors. Smooth. Very slightly sweet. Slightly bitter finish. The kindest praise for this beer is that it has no off-flavors, but overall it is a lukewarm taste experience. Disappointing.

Flight #3 at the brewery with ebone1988. The pour is a darker brown with a lot of light ruby shining through. There is a thin ring of light khaki head and a lot of soapy lace. The aroma is very milky and sweet right up front. The maltiness and strong roast come in on the back end. Chocolate and bitter roast finish it out. It’s not terrible. The flavor is milky and sweet. There is a light roast and a lightly bitter finish. It’s watery and flavorless in the middle. The mouth feel is thin and watery with a lack carbonation and a dry thin finish. The aftertaste is thin and roasty with a sweet lactose there as well. This is not a great porter
