Awful porter.

This beer lacks everything that makes a porter exceptional. The smooth taste of coffee and chocolate that I come to expect from a good porter are virtually nonexistent. In their place is a harsh, unrelenting assault of hops that is reminiscent of a strong pale ale. Over-carbonation only adds to this unpleasant and unending experience. As a porter enthusiast, this beverage left me extremely disappointed.

This is a overly carbonated beer with close to no aroma. Taste was very mild,I got no coffee but maybe a little malt and possibliy something similar to vanilla. It was okay but weak on flavor and too high on the carbonation

Poured from a brown 22 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1 inch head. Smell is mild, some roasted malts. Taste is also mild, roasted malts, light coffee, not exactly bursting with flavor. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is ok, but nothing special.

Just awful. Stouts and Porters are my favorite style. As others have said in their reviews there is a sharpness or bitterness to this. I cannot detect the hints of chocolate or coffee other reviewers mention. It is so bad I want some of my friends to try it simply for comparison sake...but I don't know if I want to subject them to this. I also tried their Amber Ale...which isn't bad.

Something has changed as ABV now 5.5% as has the bottle label. Color is dark. Really dark. Black enough light will not pass through. What light does go around the edge of the glass is a dark red hue. Head was tan, did not last, and left no lace. This can be poured to the top. Smell is chocolate. To me taste is chocolate with hint of coffee (expected) on the palate and hops on the tongue. Aftertaste is faint coffee and hops. Interesting combination but lingers well. Feel is smooth (again, expected). Similar to a cream ale.
