Draft. Pours near black with a beige head. Roasted malty aroma with some nutty sweetness and coffee. A touch thin, with roasted malts and coffee, light chocolate sweetness, and a bitter roasted finish. Pretty good. PorterPounder (7961) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 13, 2010
On tap at the brewpub in Chattanooga. Dark, ruby red to black pour, off-white head - nice lacing. Aroma of chicory, coffee, licorice. Flavor has some of the same elements with some chocolate making its presence known as well. Nice lacticity. Best of my visit to the brewhouse. drfabulous (7933) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - MAY 25, 2016
Draught at brewpub. Dark creamy chocolate and rich cocoa notes. Best of the bunch. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 5, 2010
On tap at Terminal. Poured medium-deep cola brown with a ring of off-white head. The aroma picked up lots of sweet and slightly darker chocolates paired with vanilla and rolled oats.. sweet and welcoming. The flavor found semi-sweet chocolate all the way through.. light cocoa bitterness and related sourness on the edges.. bittersweet, roasty finish. Medium-bodied at most on the palate, with increasing bitterness as it progressed.. moderate carbonation.. decent feel and flow.. I’d gladly have another.
