Poured from bottle into snifter glass.
Pours traditional dark dark brown with thin caramel head.
Smells roasty, chocolaty and hints of coffee.
Taste was thin and not substantial enough, fell below the levels of aroma.
Mouthfeel was also thinner than I was hoping for.
Overall, this beer was disappointing. Looked and smelled nice, taste was lacking.

Slightly burned chocolate and roasted malt smell. Tastes the same, with a nice roasted and ashy flavor plowing through. A little bit of bitterness but not hoppy. Maybe not King, but Prince indeed. This porter can hang with the big boys. It is the most similar beer to Edmund Fitzgerald (the King) I have had. Wasnt expecting it to topple Founders and Black Butte. Well done Maine Beer folks.

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

Poured from 500 ml bottle into snifter.

A: Pours a very deep brown almost black with 3 finger creamy tan head. Fairly significant lacing.

S: Roasted malts, bitter chocolate, hint of coffee and smoke.

T: A nice blend of roasty flavors. A bit of chocolate, caramel, coffee. Tending a bit bitter but in a pleasant way.

M: Full bodied but not thick. Dry finish and well carbonated.

O: This is an outstanding porter. One of my favorites of the group. Compares very well to Stone's Smoked Porter or Yazoo's Sue.

On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.

Poured a deep black hue with a one finger frothy tan head. There was very good retention and lacing.

The smell featured dry cocoa, caramel and a touch of charcoal.

The taste consisted of a dry roasted malt with the accompanying charcoal element and a light grassy hop.

The mouthfeel was clean and dry.

Overall a superior porter. Nice and dry.

Enjoyed on tap at Plan b in Simsbury, CT. Absolutely delicious porter. Pours very dark and with a tan-colored rocky head. Mouthfeel is full - bodied and rich, it is full from start to finish. Chocolate and toasted malt flavors dominate without tipping into stout territory. I haven't had anything from Maine Beer that disappointed, and this is no exception.
