Know that feeling when you come across a diamond in the rough? This 12 oz sessionable gem, with notes of chocolate and hints of caramel, is well worth any trade. You'll soon be sifting through the couch cushions for spare change and crawling through closets for Great grandma's gold chain.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Served on tap at the Bethlehem location, poured into a pint glass

A- pours black with no head whatsoever. Not sure if that was due to sitting out at the bar for awhile or not, so I won't dock it too bad

S- the aroma is faint, but what I'm getting is roasted malts and light chocolate

T- chocolate and coffee are the predominant flavors, with a decent bit of roast

M- a little thin

O- nothing really outstanding here, just an easy drinking porter

On tap @ Allentown Brew Works 10/18 (O.G. 1.058 ABV 5.7%)
This is about the 6th time I've had this brew.
Dark brown with small head, good lacing.
Strong aroma of chocolate, carmel and malt. Tastes of coffee, chocolate, english malt and carmel. A very tasty and extremely drinkable porter. Not too heavy. A very nice staple beer here at Allentown.

A fine example a of a good, clean American porter, though maybe a touch on the lighter side. The malt profile was more dark roasted coffee with a touch of cocoa and black grains. I like more chocolate and less obvious grain taste, but it was still pretty tasty and nicely balanced.

12/28...on tap in Allentown PA...pours medium dark brown. Foam capped. Coffee notes, chocolate too. Light bodied, and thin mouthfeel. Like the flavor, but like my porters a little heartier.

Appearance is dark brown with ruby and copper colors on the edges. There was a finger of head that retained for a bit. The nose was mildly roasty. As for the taste, roasted malts were present throughout and this offering had a mild bitterness on the finish. This is a standard, drinkable, but definitely unremarkable, porter.

A really nice straight forward American style porter. Dark brown/black with a thin tan head. Slight hints of roasted coffee and chocolate in the nose. Tatse of roasted malt and a backround hint of licorice that became more apparent as the beer warmed.

Overall a very nice, solid and easy to drink porter.
