This porter absolutely blew me away. I was only able to have a half-pint because it was the last of the keg, but my God was it worth it. It poured a beautiful black, no head on mine unfortunately because it was the last of the keg. Aromas of dark chocolate and roasted coffee. Taste - magnificent roasted coffee coffee coffee - like Turkish coffee - it still lingers in my memory actually. Very flavorful yet not astringent or overwhelming. Best porter I've had to date. I had the Founders once I finished my half pint, and it really paled in comparison. (554 characters)

In a pint glass this beer was a very dark brown, almost black, color. There was a small tan head.

Roasted malt aroma. Coffee and chocolate.

Nice taste. Espresso/chicory. Some dark chocolate.

Medium-bodied. Pleasantly bitter. One of the more enjoyable beers from White Birch. (277 characters)

Thoroughly enjoyed from the 22 oz bottle in a snifter. This FINE porter pours a dark chocolate brown with a fantastic head of dark tan bubbles that fades to a thick ring, nice pool, and some excellent lacing. Nose of dark coffee, dark cocoa, light black strap molasses, a touch of smoke, and some dark berries. Flavors surpass the nose with dark coffee and cocoa dancing about a sea of sweet molasses that is lightly kissed with some smokiness on the back. Dark berry flavors of blackberries and raspberries meld in the sides and fade into the back with a lightly sweet yet roasty note that is pleasant and satisfying. A superior porter. Nice full body, moderately high carbonation, and a lightly bitter roasted malt aftertaste.

OUTSTANDING! I WANT TO LIVE NEAR THIS BREWERY!

Purchased in Columbus Ohio from Weyland's Market.

Cheers! (847 characters)

From the 650 ml. bottle, Spring 2014 batch no. 1096. Sampled on March 14, 2014.

The pour is a gorgeous looking dark brown with a cloudy appearance and a long-lasting but delicate tan head.

The aroma is alive with dark toasted malts, coffee, and an earthy and clean but punchy hop note.

The body is medium and a tad astringent.

The taste echoes the aroma with its toasted dark malt vibrancy with a coffee grinds chaser and a modest dry bitterness at the tail end. Really well put together Porter. (499 characters)

22 ounce bottle, Winter 2014 batch. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours very dark brown with about an inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both pretty good. The brew smells like roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate. The taste is similar to the aroma, but there's the addition of some vanilla, nuts and woodiness. Nice balance between the sweet and bitter flavors. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's creamy, coating and smooth. It's easy enough to drink. I think it's a very enjoyable porter! I liked it a lot, and at $5.99 a bomber I certainly wouldn't have any problems with buying this brew again. Definitely worth a try if you've never had it before. (675 characters)

Pours a solid dark brown/black color with a good sized fluffy khaki head that persists forever. Lots of chocolate and coffee in the aroma as well as hints of caramel and light bits of dark dried fruits. There's a slight earthy hop aroma to provide a bit of balance. The flavor follows the aroma quite well. Lots of milk and dark chocolates along with plenty of roasted grains. Light earth and fruits round out the flavor quite nicely. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a creamy sweet velvety mouthfeel. Wow, that's a damn fine beer right there. Creamy, smooth, sweet, chocolatey, this is a great porter. (622 characters)

Poured a dark brown body with two finger head that goes away real quick and leaves little lace on top of an aroma that is balanced between chocolate and caramel sweetness and some roasted/bread/coffee malts. Medium bodied, not really thick enough to be chewey, hops are barely there and this beer is about the malts. I find the beer to be simple but enjoyable as I get a balance between mainly chocolate and roasted malts and I must say the beer tends to be on the sweet side. Not the most complex porter but pretty enjoyable. (526 characters)
