(12oz bottle, courtesy of Cavie) Pours a very dark ruby with a pretty off=white head. Smells roasty, coffee, bittersweet chocolate- a bit of fig/raisin. Taste is water roasted, watered down coffee, campfire smoke, well toasted bread.
Bottle from Liquor Barn into a tulip glass. The aroma seemed to be mostly dark fruit with some bitter chocolate. Didn’t work for me. john44 (3331) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2017
Bottle. Dark brown in colour. Malty (liquorice, some coffee, slight roasty malts, slight caramel). Fruity (berries). Sweetish. Looks like Cola. Similar carbonation. Thin. Watery. (2008)

Dark brown color. Goo looking, beige head . Chocolate and roasted malt in aroma. Same notes in taste with moderate sweetness. Roasted bitterness at the end. An underrated beer.

Pours dark brown with a small beige head. Smells of coffee and chocolate. Taste is a generic porter, coffee... bitter. Good, but unoriginal. rdixon77 (2944) - Georgia, USA - MAR 31, 2015
Old rating. Deep brown. Dark malts, chocolate, coffee suffering from a weird metallic taste. Pass. kingofthemtn (55) - - FEB 12, 2015
Dark beer #5 of 6 from a mixed 6 pack. Aroma is coffee and steel. Appearance is cola color. Taste is black coffee with copper. Palate is very dry. Overall not my favorite but good if you’re looking for a roast coffee taste. Ron (4095) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 14, 2015
Bottle. Poured a near dark brown with a off white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma started with some sweet dark grains and had a bit of chocolate and toasted notes. Flavor was similar with a good amount of toast and sweet dark roasted grains with just a hint of bitterness. mcclainc50 (217) - New York, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Pours a dark brown with a light tan head leaving little lacing. Little aroma. Metallic taste with a bit of coffee and light malty taste. Not a great beer, average porter.
