Delicious porter with an intense smokey chocolate aroma. Beautiful dark pour. Almost as satisfying as a great stout.
can - Near black pour. Aroma is of coffee, dark roasted malt, and chocolate. The flavor is similar with a good hops balance. Full bodied. Very tasty. rumproasts (6052) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 12, 2017
can. dark brown with one finger head. reasonable body with dark chocolate, and a bit of coffee. fairly roasty. pretty solid porter done in a rather straightforward manner. rubbishystuff (2537) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 9, 2017
THanks to iNBe. Rich but very drinkable. Nice minerally quality to it. Serving: Can fidemaster (336) - 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 (1540) - 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.

16 oz can. Pours dark mahogany with a thin tan head. Aroma is roasted malt and dark chocolate. Taste is dark chocolate and roasted malt. Pretty good porter. jtclockwork (17654) - , New Jersey, USA - APR 27, 2017
Can - pours dark brown - nose/taste of light roast, dark chocolate - medium bodied. Not bad. Beerenberger (1605) - Fischer, Texas, USA - APR 24, 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 (9184) - 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.
