Had on a sampler in Providence. Decent body. Low bitterness. Moderate roast.

MWMBeerguy (203) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 22, 2014
Sort of a cardboard aroma. Light brown, like a dark American Brian ale. Thin tan head with medium sized bubbles. Smooth taste with chocolate but a little chalky. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2.6
Bebum (1098) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Deep copper, tall and very persistent head. Sharp nose. Light body, flat and watery mouthfeel and finish, low alcohol heat and carbonation, moderate flavor intensity, long palate Bitter, dry, sourish. Roast flavors. Cannot see a reason to buy it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DiarmaidBHK (5947) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2014
Bottle from Liquors 44. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Leaves some solid lacing in the glass. Decent malt notes on the nose. Has a hint of chocolate on the tongue. Finishes clean. Eh!

3.6
Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Aroma is nutty coffee, like brown ale. Near black pour, thin film head. Unexpected bitter, smokey flavor, slight lactic sweet finish. Medium creamy body. This is a great basic porter in my opinion.

3.4
queenholly (3623) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Bottle courtesy of AirForceHops. Sweet chocolate, earthy coffee aroma. Dark brown with a moderate tan head. Earthy roasty malt, light coffee, and some chalky cocoa flavor with a bitter roasty finish. Body on the light side of medium, average carbonation.
