22oz bottle purchased from Wine & Beer - Westpark, Richmond, VA.

Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 1" light brown head over the opaque dark, dark brown brew. Head is resilient, and laces well. Aroma is of dark malts, coffee and chocolate, with a tint of vanilla. Taste is sweetly of the dark malts, and the vanilla comes through again, strong enough to seem artificial. Also a tad of sour fruit notes. Mouthfeel is somewhat good, although feels a bit thin, and the drinkability is good as well, with perhaps the sweetness stopping the fun after a few. Not a bad offering by any stretch, must have been different on tap...

On-tap at the Legend Brewing Company.

Dark black in color. Just a bit of light makes its way around the edges. No head. Things begin to go awry from here on...the aroma was all ripe raisins. Crazy, but true. Very different and very un-porter-like. Flavor, as expected, followed the aromas, with the taste profile being almost completely dominated by sweet raisins. Just the slightest bit of coffee undertones. Low carbonation and decent drinkability. Very uncharacteristic flavor for a porter.
