1/18/13 bottling date. Poured into a DFH tulip shaped pint glass.

pours a pitch black color with a half inch thick beige head. Robust porter smell for sure on this one. Nice chocolate and coffee aroma. ooh, really digging the taste as well. strong chocolate and coffee on the palate. This is one strong, upfront porter. What a porter is meant to be. Heavier side of medium bodied with low carbonation. What i expect the body of a porter to be.

Overall this beer is excellent. One of the best porters I've ever had. highly recommend to anyone.

Poured a midnight black with two finger tan head, good retention and thick lacing.

Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate and coffee.

Taste followed the nose with dark roasted malt, dark coffee bitterness, hints of dark chocolate and hops.

Mouth Feel is medium body, moderate carbonation, smooth yet bitter leaving a dry after taste.

Overall this is a very nice bold porter, it is near the top of my porter favorites. This was my first Maine Beer Company brew and I hope I have a similar experience with their other selections.

Very dark color and opaque in the tumbler. Large beige head that lasts well. Quite sudsy in the mouth. This starts off as a mellow malty mouthful and shades off into the darkness. Bitterness is quite substantial. I don't see the IBU, but it's a lot of Centennial and Columbus hops. The charred flavors take over from the sweet malt.

Overall, this is a flavorful dark brew that is on the austere side. An interesting big beer that is double the flavor, if not quite double the alcohol. The bitterness finally takes its toll for me. From the 500 ml bottle bought at Whole Foods in Washington, DC.

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.
