A very nice charred malt aroma of coffee and dark chocolate. flavor was barely sweet on the start and finished with a nice charred malt, almost roasted marshmallow bitter finish. very tasty. the body was a little watery, but overall, a very enjoyable beer.
Pours a dark brown with a thin white head. Aroma is roast and subtle chocolate notes. Flavor is lighter on the roast and the chocolate is barely there. Has a dry mouthfeel, with some bitterness. This is okay. rarbring (2295) - Linköping, SWEDEN - SEP 24, 2013

I’ve got this in tap at the brewpub in royal oak. It pours a classic porter dark brown with almost no aroma. The flavor is OK, but nothing to write home about. Overall, it’s alright with a meal, but I’m pretty dissapointed with this hometown brew. Oh well. BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 10, 2009
MiBG Summer fest 2009, Saturday session: (My next to last beer of the fest, I already posted the last beer which was the awful Kid Rock brew. ) This has almost a purple tint to the brown hue with a good beige head. The aroma is plum, raisin, chocolate, coffee, walnut and a hint of herbal hops. The taste is basic the same with fruity and chocolate tones and a slight hop and coffee finish. The mouth feel is lively and clean. It’s a porter but nothing a seek out. jsquire (4563) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - SEP 6, 2008
On tap at the ’08 MBG festival. Dark beer with a small beige head. Subtle roast nose. This is a flavorful roasted malt porter with some coffee notes and a grassy hop finish. Precept53 (147) - West Bloomfield, Michigan, USA - MAY 31, 2007
Not to impressed with this beer... nice coffe aroma and taste however watery mouthfeel... more hops and malt would be helpful punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - MAR 28, 2006
Pretty mediocre porter. Pours blackish brown with a small tan head. Aroma is what you would expect from a porter (roasted malts, touch of coffee, etc.) but it’s real weak. Same with the flavor. Mouthfeel is good, decent body, just a touch on the thin side.
