Pours a dark colour with a large (be careful when puring) brown head that lasts all the while. Good lace. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits, licorice. Creamy palate, medium body, strong carbonation. Taste of coffee, chocolate, roasted notes, dark fruits, licorice and tobacco.

Awful. It may not be fair to review this one based on this bottle however I would argue the quality control at Dunham needs some work. Pours into instant foam, 95% of this bottle was foam. The brew smelled delicious however I could only manage a few sips.

Again I'm disappointed by Dunham. I wouldn't have reviewed a beer in this state however this seems to happen often with this brewer. Perhaps I'm unlucky.

Pitch black with a nice off-white head.

Intense dark chocolate and espresso smell.

Taste similar to the nose, lots of dark chocolate and nice roasted notes. With a moderate bitterness.

I would prefer a longer finish but otherwise nice mouth feel.

Purchased at L'Duchesse in Quebec City (summer 2014)
kept in fridge since then

Pours completely black with a huge tan head, very creamy, lots of lace
Somewhat muted nose, not surprising for a porter
Well balanced roasted and chocolate malts, slight hop bitterness,creamy mouthfeel, very easy to drink
An excellent example of an American Porter, I'd happily have a second and probably a third. Definitely worth trying.

A:
Pours a dark cola brown that is opaque with a frothy three fingers of tan head that airily drops to a nice film. Good retention; spots of tiny lacing dots. (3.5)

S:
Earthy and darkly bitter. Chocolate, hard water, coffee, roasty burnt nuts. (3.75)

T:
Coffee and charred nuts. Lots of coffee, chocolate and charred flavors, with some dirty hop flavors in the background. (3.5)

M:
Lightish bodied and a touch watery with lots of bubbles and a dry finish that lingers a bit. A bit too pop-ish. (3.25)

O:
This is an all right take on a porter.
It is not the best ever; but it is tasty, inoffensive, drinkable, and not terribly expensive.
It looks alright in the glass and smells and tastes like robust porters do; like a porter with a characteristic or two beefed up. It is pretty heavily coffee-tasting and has a kind of funky medicinal hop presence underneath that reminds me of a used dishcloth. *Huele a trapo*. I don't mind it, but it might taste a little richer and be a little more drinkable to me if it was a little more clean/nutty. It is a touch watery, too, but not horrible.
Might have again; worth a shot if you like Dunham's beers. (3.75)

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color porter with a dark brown foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of light dry roasted notes with subtle chocolate notes. Taste is also dominated by dry bitter roasted malt notes with some subtle chocolates notes with light green herbal notes. Body is fuller than average with good carbonation. Overall this was enjoyable but not sure this should be rated so highly.
