Had on tap at the American craft beer fest, then again reviewed from bottle. Colour is black with generous lacing and film.

S- rich dark maltiness, caramel, dark hot chocolate/mocha, earthy and robust. Hops come through with a piny resiny level ontop of the rich treacle caramel. Smell also has done black licorice and rich foresty notes.

T- smooth dark chocolate, pine, and citrusy hops with grapefruit, salted caramel, coffee notes come forward but the beer as a whole is quite fruity and forward, cherries and toffee, some florals from the hops. It all comes together really nicely to yield a moderately bitter, mildly roasty, but deliciously complex porter.

M- quite a full porter, nice body, with a mild/moderate carbonation, bitter dark chocolate and smooth bitterness on the finish. Quite crisp, with a lingering toasty and pine character.

A full bodied and well hopped porter, with a great balance and depth of flavour. Assertive hop flavour blends well with the dark malt. Not much else to say than this is another really well put together beer, very drinkable with a satisfying and intriguing complexity. Nothing disappointing about this, outstanding hoppy porter.

On tap at the Thirsty Moose in Portsmouth NH.

Bold, dark look and smelled of chocolate, hops, and burnt smoke. Taste of chocolate upfront and some nice bitterness from the hops. Slick, smooth mouthfeel makes for one tasty porter. Again, Maine Beer Co. has outdone themselves. Really liked this porter.

A- Dark brown/black with a thin tan head. Some decent lacing left behind.

S- Coffee, roasted malts, chocolate/cocoa. Smell slightly underwhelming.

T- Dark chocolate, coffee, slightly bitter. A slightly smokey taste is also present. Slight alcohol taste. A great tasting porter.

M- Medium and smooth. Decent carbonation. Bitter and dry aftertaste. A slight alcohol burn on the way down but nothing big deal.

O- Second only to Founders from what I've tried thus far for Porters. Well done.

The beer is near black with a thick, soapy, beige collar. The aroma brings beautiful roast character and milk chocolates. Chocolate forward with moderate bitterness in the back. Smooth on the palate with a zesty kick from the hops. A solid example of the style. My primary complaint with Maine Beer Co. is the price. $7 per 500 mL is too much to pay for porters, IPAs, pale ales and the like.
