Pours a dark black/brown penetrable by light with a small tan head real quick to dissipate. Smells strongly of roasted malt, coffee and a little mocha. Taste follows with the roasted malt being the strongest aspect and focus of this beer. Bitter roasted coffee and a tad bit of mocha. Went in a completely different taste direction than Otter Creek’s stovepipe porter. Little on the hops, decent amount carbonation and a thin body. Finishes somewhat dry, a low abv so sessionable. Just a solid beer. brokensail (16645) - Dublin, California, USA - APR 26, 2012
Almost black in color with an off-white head. A mild roastiness with some coffee and a hint of chocolate. The nose is just a bit simple and bland. The flavor offers up some roasted malt and maybe a bit of coffee. There’s not much sweetness to it other than a touch of chocolate. Kind of thin as well.

Bottle. Medium dark brown color, with light tannish head. Roasted malt, burnt coffee, and some chocolate sweetness. OK Derek881 (1272) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Poured a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a dark copper-brown color with a deep red hue and a thin, creamy tan head with little retention but good cling. Its aroma featured caramel and chocolate malt with a bit of earthy and grainy hops too. It tasted sweet with a chocolate flavor mixed with some caramel and a bit of bitterness too. The beer was fairly wet and slightly creamy with good fizz and liveliness, though a tad thin and light in the mouthfeel. kwoeltje (2234) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - JAN 28, 2012
(draught) deep brown with tan head. Roast malt aroma. Flavor is roast malt, som ecoffee and hints of chocolate. Very drinkable porter.

Mild mocha and hop aroma. Pours a deep dark brown that can be seen through if held up to the light with a mild tan head. Bitter with a chalky mouth feel. Feels quite carbonated for a Porter. Finish is on the sour side. Not a bad brew but it just seems a bit plain. I would drink it again but wouldn’t go out of my way for it. skibumphishead (259) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 23, 2011
pint draft at a bar next to Fenway Paahk. Burnt coffee aroma and a nice bitter chocolate flavor dominate. Not bad at all. Now I need to try the "Larry." Rciesla (5607) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 24, 2010

trade from MaBeer1972 -thanks! not much aroma; dark black w/minimal head; great first taste, but just ok after that - a little watery but an OK porter nice, nothing overpowering. nimbleprop (8743) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 30, 2010
12oz bottle pours a translucent, deep, super dark brown with a creamy,lacing, slightly mocha colored head. Nose is wet malts, dark bread, cold coffee, a little brown sugar. Relatively mild aroma. Flavor is sweet, caramel, molasses, dark bread, a little bit of coffee grounds, crackers, malty. Medium bodied, dry finish. Fairly standard.
