Bought this from the brewery, drank within a week. Very disappointing beer. Just lacked flavor. Wish they had it on tap so I didn't waste $6 on a 16.9oz bottle of this beer. A big fan of dark beers, but this just wasn't good, you can find better porters for $10/6pk.

L: Dark, opaque, black? With a dark beige, frothy, rocky head. 4.5
S: Raisin, plum, fig? Roasted malts. 4
T: Robust. Caramel and roasted malt. Acrid yet pleasant. Sweet, burnt flavor and a little sourness in the finish. 4.25
F: Medium-full body and the roast/caramel feels full and dry at the same time. 4.5
O: This is a worthy sipper. There is a lot of flavor, some conflicting but mostly in harmony. 4.25

Drank this last night during the Caps-Pens, NHL-game 1(Go Caps!). I'm trying to drink a new craft brew each game. This was a good, dark, strong porter. Really rich dark, color and creamy feel going down. It had notes of chocolate, caramel and licorice. It was a pretty neutral tasting porter making it easy to drink and got better as you drank it. This beer tastes similar to a Founder's porter. The only negative is, at the beginning, my tastebuds would pick up on a slight chemical aftertaste. This could be because of my dislike for any anise/licorice type tastes in any drink or food. Cost = $6.99 (Spruce Creek Provisions-Rt 1 Kittery, ME)

500 ml bottle. Perfect black pour with thick mocha head that fades slowly, soapy lace. Mild roasted malt aroma. Taste is full of chocolate and roasted coffee, near perfect bitterness, dry bitter finish. Medium to thick chewy mouthfeel. This is one tasty porter, deep and bitter.

L - dark brown. Can't see through it. Has an appealing milk chocolately colored head.

S - hops and roasted caramel. Smells exotic and fresh. Touch of rusted metal.

O - oats and sweet chocolate. Some bitter coffee and a lively dose of hops. Doesn't blow me away in any of those categories, but does them all well. I can pick out distinct flavors, and the tropical hoppiness blows my hair back a bit.

F - ultra creamy, thanks to the oats? This is how I like my dark beers. Not overly thick, but the mouthfeel is just sublime, swishing it between my teeth and gums. Has that heavy sludginess to it while still staying jumpy and refreshing. Well done.

O - been after this one for a while and I am not disappointed! Great showcase of coffee, chocolate, and hops. Solid porter/borderline stout. Nice beer.
