black pour with a medium cocoa head. Rich roasted malt and coffee aroma. Great full bodied mouth feel and malty flavor. some coffee and nut notes. Great bittersweet finish and linger. A really solid porter. Prost!

Roasty smooth and creamy. slightly musty, nice medium body and palate. Bittersweet throughout. Well-balanced. Quite nice

Rich deep dark brown coloured body with a nice thinnish tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, light prunes and raisins and a bit of coffee. Medium-bodied; Assertive roasted malt flavours with some coffee, malt, earth, caramelised sugars and a bit of hops noticeable near the end. Aftertaste shows some milk, cream and lactose, but this is all about the roasted malt, and in a good way. Overall, a nice robust porter with no real bad flavours or qualities. Not amazing, but a good beer that’s worth trying, especially on a cold day. I sampled this pint on draught at the Map Room in Chicago, Illinois on 14-November-2015 for US$5,00 for sixteen ounces.

Very opaque, black. Light tan head. Slight coffee notes, roasted grain, light molasses. Lightly bittered, rounder sweetness. Reasonably heavy body, quite chewy, light acidity. Quite good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce bottle. Really nice chocolate nose. Roast. Chocolate. Cocoa power. Medium body. Nice.

edwardbass (865) - Illinois, USA - DEC 29, 2015
Lots of coffee and chocolate aroma. Super-dark brown with a tan head. Taste is typical porter, coffee, dark chocolate, roasty grain. The palate is too thin, though not egregiously so. It’s a decent porter, but not a standout.

ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - DEC 27, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Pours pitch black color with red highlights in the light with a small tan head. The aroma is roasted malt and coffee with a little chocolate. The taste is roasted malt with coffee. An outstanding porter.

Bottle. Black with virtually a non-existent tan head. Coffee and chocolate aroma. It has a sweet taste.

Typical porter flavor except for a tang like red wine. Okay but not great, and too watery for my taste.
