4.1/5 rDev +5.9%
Pours a burnt brown with a light khaki head, and great lacing.
Chunky sweet chocolate on the nose, coffee.
Sweet chocolate followed immediately by roasted coffee bitterness.
A lingering bittersweet finish sits on the tongue well after each sip
Well carbonated, medium bodied with a slightly chewy finish.
One of my favorite go-to porters. Once upon a time, this was one of the introductory dark beers in my beer education. This one will always hold a special place in my beer heart.

Bottle poured into pint glass
This smooth porter was great from start to finish!
The aroma is of malt, coffee, and hints of chocolate. The taste is of coffee, hints of cocoa, and finally classic burnt malt characteristic of the style. As the beer warms you can feel more of the coffee.
This is truly a beer that may find its way to my fridge one day.

Shot glass-flight, originally reviewed 11/1/11
Pour-Some effervescence, light black with some brown tint, thick off white head, some lace sticks.
Nose-Huge coffee and some bittersweet chocolate, a lot of roasted aroma.
Palate-Hint of sweet at first, very bitter, moderately sour. Everything fades and chocolate covered espresso beans come forward, very roasted, nice complexity.
Body-Heavy, smooth, sort of dry finish, some effervescence on the tongue. Good stuff, highly recommended if you like a closer to burnt taste, yet not overwhelming.

3.8/5 rDev -1.8%
Poured into a standard pint glass. A dark, almost tar black beer after it settles. A dark creamy head of froth sits on top that dissipates some, still leaving a pretty decent layer of head as the beer goes down. Sticky lacing. The beer smells of bitter chocolate and roasted malts. The taste of burnt malts and a bitter cocoa taste is present. Also a biter hop presence to finish. The mouthfeel is just abut right for a porter. Overall this beer doesn't stand out as exceptional, yet at the same time it's not overpowering from Rogue, which makes me like it. But for the price, it's unlikely I'll revisit this very often, if ever again.

[Poured into an generic tulip glass]
B: [12 FL OZ]The bottle doesn't do much for me, though it seems appropriate for a porter with it's black label. Little information, including an absence of abv%.
A: Very dark brown body with a red hue, beautiful large fluffy mocha head(moderate dissipation), and underwhelming lacing(spotty).
S: The usual smells you get from a stout/porter. Roasted sweet malt, chocolate/coffee/toffee notes.
T: Roasted sweet malt and toffee dominate, with faint bitterness. Others flavors would be caramel and vanilla.
M: Smooth and dry, med/light(watery) bodied, low/med carbonation, and decent alcohol presence(apparent, but doesn't intrude).
O: It was good, but one can do much better. The body hurts this the most with it's watery element. Defiantly a good beer, but not great. Worth a try and I defiantly wouldn't turn one down.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of chocolate, coffee. Taste is of roasted malts, some coffee, a bit of hops are present, just a touch of sweetness. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall is a good quality beer.

3.05/5 rDev -21.2%
Appearance is dark brown to black, rich light brown foam. The smell is strong on the coffee side. The mouthfeel is ok while the beer is in your mouth. After the beer leaves your mouth there is a strong coffee taste on the back of the tongue, which is good if you like that. The taste is good as porters go, but we feel it falls short of the other great porters out there. Overall if you like strong coffee in your beer you will like this beer. This is a muffin beer. enjoy...BR

A - Pours a very dark brown with excellent ruby red highlights and a couple fingers of froathy beige head, retreats to a webbing. Good looking porter.
S - Nose is malty with chocolate and roasty coffee notes. Not the best part of the beer.
T - Very nice. Up front with some roasty chocolate and then some malt and bitter hops and leaving a lingering coffee/chocolate.
M - A bit thin for a porter and it can be a bit biting at times with the dark malt and hops.
O - It's pretty good, appearance and taste a highlight, and really what else do you want?
