Delicious porter with an intense smokey chocolate aroma. Beautiful dark pour. Almost as satisfying as a great stout.
THanks to iNBe. Rich but very drinkable. Nice minerally quality to it. Serving: Can fidemaster (322) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - JUN 28, 2017
Aroma is fresh coffee. Pure Black color. starts off like a sweet coffee. Has a horrible, brutal bitter finish. If you like bitter coffee you will love it. I do not. Onslow (1496) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - MAY 19, 2017
Pour from a 12oz can. Dark brew with one finger of head after pouring, great head retention. Aroma is complex malts - sweet malts, chocolate, coffee, toast - with overtones of green fruit and floral notes. Interesting aroma with great character. Taste is sweet and rich malt up front - again chocolate and coffee - with an increasingly complex malt finish and hops notes subtly emerging at the very end. An excellent porter. basaywhat (282) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAY 9, 2017

Aroma of cola from a dark brown pour. Long lasting tan head. The taste is flat grainy - not much malt, coffee etc. Medium light body. Overall, ok but not the flavors.

16floz can,BBD 12.24.2016, paid a discounted $5 for a four-pack. Poured into a mug glass. I’ve had this before, and enjoyed it. I hold it up to the light, and no light transfers. There’s a sticky head to complete the appearance portion of this review. Smells pretty similar to a dunkel, makes me wonder if dark German malts are incorporated. A straight forward bold porter, where roasted malts take center stage. Pumpernickel and dark chocolate over a heavy feeling medium body compose the palate. Well done. drowland (8760) - Georgia, USA - MAR 30, 2017
12/22/16. On tap at a martini bar at home in the QC - Iowa side as I recall. Black pour with a small tan head. Light roasted malts aroma, hints of chocolate. Decent flavor, roasted malts, cream, chocolate, coffee. Eh. heemer77 (5358) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAR 25, 2017
Can. Perfectly black body with a fluffy light brown head. Nose of lightly roasted coffee and almonds. There is also some milk chocolate. This tastes like sweetened coffee and raisins. Notes of dark chocolate are also present. The finish has some bread crust and a little hint of toffee. The body is light for the abv. Solid porter. twindadplus2 (715) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 15, 2017
Dark brown with a thick tan head. Aroma of creamy malt and chocolate. Taste is bitter chocolate and dark roasted malt with a bit of sweet fruit. Slippery palate with light carbonation and a long darkly bitter finish.
