Poured in to a pint glass

A: This beer pours a rich, dark, opaque brown. In fact, it's almost black. A two finger of thick, foamy brown head sits on top. Head recedes at a moderate pace leaving big thick chunks of lacing on the glass.

S: Nose is caramel and roasted malts, chocolate, and some piney, citrus hops.

T: Taste starts with a good deal of charred flavoring. Roast malts come through mingled with some caramel notes. Bitter bakers chocolate and piney hops fill out the middle. Finish carries some additional chocolate notes mixed with a touch of lemon citrus and a hint of coffee.

M: Medium to fuller bodied, medium carbonation, creamy at the forefront with a prickly finish.

O: Goes down easy, tasty, not too filling, nice kick, nice representation of style. Another nicely crafted beer from Maine Brewing.

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a quarter finger high dense tan head that rapidly dissipated, leaving a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of burnt and roasted malts are present in the nose as well as some hints of pine resin hops.
T: The taste has flavors of dark chocolates and roasted malts along with hints of citrusy hops and a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp and chewy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a very bold tasting porter that is easy to drink.

Poured from a bottle into a tulip snifter.

A: dark dark brown, pretty well black. Huge three finger head, Tight tan to light brown with tight small bubbles. Clear as black can be. Head dissipated slowly, lasts and stops at about a finger.
S: dark fruit, some coffee, chocolate. Very toastyand roasty but not burnt.
T: Classic porter....a bit tart with huge roasty flavors. Slight vanilla. Dark plum. Some stickiness and very slight sweetness in the finish.
M: full rich mouthfeel, borderline light cream. Medium carbonation. Long last to the finish.
O: not a huge porter fan, but this is very nice. Medium to low on the sticky-sweet-tartness that I'm not a fan of in most porters. Highly recommended.

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

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.
