10 oz. tulip, $5.50 at Tap House. Opaque brown, with a thin brown layer of foam. Heady smell with definite alcohol. Taste has big coffee and cocoa notes. A bit of sour cherry around the edges. Keeps a nice hop bite throughout the glass, and there’s a bit of roast malt that grows on me as well.
Dark, nearly black pour with generous head that slowly dissipates. It’s nearly unscented. Decent carbonation level. As far as taste, this brew really didn’t have any outstanding qualities. It’s a fair porter, just not one I would visit often.

Aroma is rye, tobacco and dark malts. The flavor is chocolate/dark chocolate, mild rye, dark malts, dark fruit and an acidic/slightly sweet finish. raoul_duke (270) - - JAN 13, 2015
Black with some chocolate brown appearance. Head dissipates quickly. Nothing jumps out flavor wise. Not overly alcoholic which is nice. Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 2, 2014
Before beginning my ratting, allow me to digress into the resplendent histories of Porter beer and the usage of rye malt in eastern Europe... Well, maybe not.kaser (6378) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 1, 2014
This ale pours an intensely dark brown opaque body with a sustained tan head. It’s got an aroma of dark brown sugar, treacle, and lightly roasted malt. Very smooth drinking, it tastes of dark caramel without the sweetness, a woody mild bitterness, a hint of chocolate, and a slight lactose sourness. Okay.
Dark pour from bomber. No head. Boozy fruity oily aroma. Taste is nutty brown beer taste. Mild hops, earthy and fresh carbonation. Not bad. Hoped for more

22 oz. bottle shared by Colin and Kristin - thanks, guys! Pours a chocolate brown, more opaque in the center and clear around the edges, with a minimal beige head that settles into a tiny ring. Notes of chocolate, rye, toast, nuts, tobacco, earth, caramel, and light dark fruits. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. Nice porter. charule (2297) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Bottle from a friend. Poured black with tan head. Aroma of not the best roasty choc. Light carb med bod. Light bitter choc taste. Christpuncher (3251) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 25, 2014
First one I have had out of urban legend brewing. A reay tasty and easy to drink porter. Slightly smokey and chocolately. Had this one at home.

Bottle served in snifter: Pours a deep brown with a fading head, minimal lace. Plenty of tasty roast, walnut, and a touch of dark fruits along with some herbal bitterness. The rye is very subdued except for the finish. Mouth feel is a tad thin and ashy. It is a drinkable beer. crossovert (13866) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2014
Draft. A bit on the lighter side body wise for a porter, but it isn’t na imperial, pretty dry with lots of malt flavors.
