My first Maine Beer Co. beer.Pours like a stout, nearly black with a one finger deep beige head that leaves a full ring of lace behind as it settles.Chocolate and nuts at first whiff,some roast and and a little drunken fruit,well rounded.Creamy and full feel with light carbonation.flavors of what a porter should be,roasty with some nuttiness,a little raw and earthy,and just enough caramel and brown sugar-like sweetness to round out everything nicely.I had high hops for this beer and it delivered and then some,kick ass.

I love this brewery; they've made consistently good beers.
This beer is black in color with a small orange/tan head. There's a little bit of lace.

Aroma of sweet chocolate and roasted malt/coffee.

The taste improves on the aroma. The chocolate is more bittersweet than sweet, and the coffee is much stronger than the aroma suggested. Strong dark coffee.

Very tasty. I don't think it's that heavy a beer, but it definitely a sipping beer. I will drink more of these.

Pours a deep brown almost black color with appreciable tan head, thin tan collar, some tan swirls when agitated. Aroma is of coffee, roasted malt, some burnt earth. Taste is lighter malt that the nose lends to. Some coffee in the mid palate and a touch of char towards the end. Nice thick body and medium carbonation.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Black, with a thin beige head that lasted a long time. No lacing on the glass.

Smell: Roasted malts, some faint coffee notes and alcohol.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth full bodied. Taste is of roasted malts, bitter hops, and some coffee in the background.

Overall: Not a huge fan of Porters personally, but I must give credit when due, and this is a great brew.

16 oz. bottle at fridge temp poured into a snifter. Bottled on 11/25/12 (about 2 months old).

Pours out pretty much opaque black with a nice full 2-3 fingers of creamy tan colored head. Keep some good retention with lots of spotty lacing sticking around.

Initially has a pretty chocolatey aroma, as it warms pine hops seem to take over. A bit of dry bakers cocoa. As it warms even further, the slightest bit of alcohol heft becomes noticeable.

Creamy dark chocolates, roasted almost charred malts, pine hops and maybe a hint of citrus are even keel with all the roasted malt flavors. Maybe a bit of oats. Finishes creamy wit a bit of a cocoa flavor and just a bit of hop bitterness.

Creamy, similar to that of an oatmeal stout. Medium bodied. Very smooth drinking.

A solid porter with a bit of welcomed extra hops. One of the better porters I've had, with a more fuller body than most. Well made.
