Pour on tap at the brewery, dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brought big roasted malt, coffee, slight acidic malt into a bit of chocolate, some fruity notes into a bit of spice. Taste was a mix of cocoa, coffee, roasted malt into some fruit, touch of yeast, slight spice, finishing fairly sweet, slightly bitter. XmnwildX12 (2079) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Has a nice coffee scent with a bit of chocolate. Taste is a bit light of chocolate and roast, lighter body than expected.

On tap at THT, served blatantly cold, after warming though its a solid porter with a lighter roast flavor than perhaps some other offerings, also getting a touch of smoke/ash in the finish.. not offputting just there. piscator34 (2534) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 4, 2012
Growler sample shared with oakbluff. Near black in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of powdered chocolate, mocha flavored coffee, and a hint of red wine. Flavors are similar, with chocolate dominating things with a bit of red grape and chalk providing additional compexity. Solid dry and drinkable stuff.

Tap at the brewpub. Very dark pour with a small tan head. Roasted malt and coffee on the aroma. Moderate palate. Slightly dry on the finish and full flavored.

Tap. Pours clear dark brown with a small tan head and some lacing. Aroma is strong dark roasted malts, coffee, and cocoa. Flavor is same, medium sweet and lightly bitter - strong coffee presence. Medium to full bodied, and quite nice.
