A friend visited Nantucket for a job interview and brought me a bottle of Moor Porter from the brewery. This is one of the best porters I've ever had. Aroma and flavors of cocoa, coffee, and malt. Not much roasted barley that I could detect. It had great, medium mouthfeel and carbonation and tasted and finished dry. Beautiful!

I told her she must get the job so I can visit and get more of this beer.

Pours black with some bare hints of light around the edges and a huge ! 1/2" rocky brown head that never sinks to less that 1/2". Huge roasted malt aromas are accompanied by tons of chocolate and coffee as well. The taste starts off with some nice roastedness before transitioning into some great bittersweet, dark chocolate flavors. The chocolateness carries the brew into the slightly bitter coffee finish that lingers nicely. The brew is creamy and smooth to the point of almost being chewy, tons of body in this one. This is just an awesome beer, awesomely drinkable. Someone else said that they prefer the draught version, I've got to get some of that.

A deep dark black pour fills the glass. It is covered in such a mass of tan foam, that you might think it came out of a skaken keg. As it dies down, your glass is covered in lace. Masses of chocolate malts and coffee leap out of the glass. There is sweetness and bitterness from the blend of dark malts.

Full of body may be an understatement. It is very rich and smooth, but I would not say thick. Creamy mouthfeel. Masses of dark malts come together in this brew. Chocolate is the dominant flavor. Almost like rich chocolate cake that is balanced with some coffee notes. This is a porter that stands up to the best of them. It had some sweet creamy qualities, almost like an oyster stout. After finishing the beer, I read the side and saw that they say it goes well with oysters. They would definitely be right on that one. I slipped up on the dinner selection, but nothing could take away from me enjoying this brew.

Tausend Dank VENOM!

Appearance: deep dark brown, with a 1” finely bubbled head. Smell: chocolate, roast malt nose, some fruit – faint licorice. Taste: Very creamy, actually dries out on the end, some licorice, a touch of cola, chocolate, faint espresso. Not as roasty and bitter as a stout, some sweetness but does dry out on the finish. Nice black coffee drying out on the end. Mouthfeel: medium carbonation, medium full to full body, not quite chewy, very easy to drink porter.

Pours a dark black color with a one-finger brown head into my pint glass.

Aroma is rich and smooth with a hint of chocolate and mild coffee upfront.

Taste starts out smooth and fades into chocolate and coffee flavors in the middle.

Lingering chocolate/coffee flavors at the back of the throat. Carbonation is a bit much but is still low enough not to be a drag.

A nice example of the style. Reminds me of a porter from a local brewpub. You really can't go wrong with this offering and if you're a fan of porters, you should check it out.

Great big bottle (a very good thing in this case) poured into a pint glass. The yeasts on Nantucket are very happy with this beer & yield a pillowy thick head that lasts and lasts & a high degree of carbonation. Can't see a thing through this deep brown brew, so the only way to the bottom is to quaff.

An aroma of roasted malts and toastiness leads to a yeasty, roasty (coffee, black malt) start, followed by a growing, almost oatmeal-like oiliness which combines with the other darker malt flavors (cocoa, coffee, burnt toast) and a hint of Granny Smith apple (that's what my notes say!) to give this brew a vast depth within its medium body. It thickens, rounds, and becomes a little sweeter as it warms, as a good porter should IMO. It finishes with a bitter chocolate, roasted, round flavor that makes you SO happy they bottle this in 750ml bottles as opposed to 12 oz. So quaffable.

25.4 oz. Bottle

This has got to be one of my all-time favorite presentations when it comes to beer. I love the tall, gracefull shape of the bottle, right down to the sweeping lines of the bulge that sticks out just below the cap. (That thing probably has a name, but I have no idea what it is.) The non-glossy label is simplicity at its finest, with a minimum of graphics and text. I love the simple description of the brew in the bottom, right-hand corner: good fresh beer.

Appearance: After popping the top on this beautiful bottle, I turned my back on it to put my opener away. When I turned back, I just noticed a column of bubbles easing its way up the neck, getting ready to foam out all over the counter. I quickly grabbed my glass and poured the beer before it was too late. I ended up with a glass that was at least half head. As this light-tan column of foam settled down, it became incredibly dense and frothy. The amount of lace that was left behind (sometimes in thick, heavy chunks and solid, three-dimensional rings) was amazing. The beer itself was deep brown and did let some ruby-red light through.

Smell: As the gigantic head was dissipating, this beer gave forth some classic porter aromas. Sweet chocolate, coffee, and cream formed a creamy concoction that tickled at my nose. It smelled as though I should eat this beer with a spoon. After the beer had settled, the sweetness and the cream subsided, leaving more room for the coffee to come forth. Also, the chocolate aroma became more bitter and was joined by notes of smoke and dark fruit. When I tried really hard, I could detect a mere hint of hops on the nose.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and extremely creamy and smooth on the front of the tongue. As the beer moved back in the mouth, though, the excessive carbonation released and tickled at the palatte. It didn't really become rough, but I could definitely feel it foam up in my mouth.

Taste: The taste was pure, classic porter. The flavors of dark coffee and black patent malts exploded upfront in the mouth. These continued all the way through into the finish and aftertaste. A slightly sweet, chocolate component arose on the finish to balance out the bitter coffee and the light hops bitterness. The lack of flavors described above might lead one to believe that this beer is one-dimensional, but that is not true. There was still a nice complexity to it and a terrific depth of flavor.

A very roasted, very "dark" tasting beer. This is a damn fine porter.

A big thanks to noclueaboutbeer for hauling this one out to Kansas all the way from Connecticut.

Tall 750ml bottle with a plain and simple rust colored label of the Cisco symbol of a wavy "C" with 2 barley stocks coming out of both ends. To the far right is the barcode and Government warning. to the far left is the brewery's address, phone number, refund values, and a medium sized paragraph about the beer. It's too bad Cisco didn't stamp it with any kind of date.

Appearance: This big wine bottled sized beer was poured into my Brooklyn Brewery Imperial pint glass. "Moor" poured a wonderful black coal color. What other color can coal be? I held it up to the light to see if it was a true black color and it was. The head of foam on this beer was equally impressive. When poured, up comes this nice looking tall creamy 3 inch head of mocha foam. This tall head of foam had excellent slow retention that left behind a 3/4 of inch creamy mocha film and plenty of sticky mocha streaks of lace. It was type of appearance that you'd look for in a Porter and more.

Smell: This aroma was chock full of roasted goodness. The aroma was thick, dry, and roasted with dark roasted malts, a splash of sweet caramel, a hint of roasted coffee beans, bitter dark chocolate, a black cherry or two, a touch of roasted pine needles, and pinch of dry roasted hops at the end. This beer's thick roasted aroma was just as great as the beer's black appearance. Hopefully the taste will not let me down. Especially after the top notch appearance and smell.

Taste: Let me be frank about the taste here. The taste didn't disappoint one bit! If there was one thing that stood out about this beer it would have to be this beer's dryness. Man was this Porter dry! It was so dry that I had to take a sip of water after every sip of this beer because all of the dry roasted malts would dry out my mouth. I've never had a Porter do that to me before. The taste was dark, dry, and roasted with dark roasted malts, a few black cherries, a dab of roasted coffee beans, a hint of dark chocolate, a very subtle splash of sweet caramel, a pinch of roasted pine needles, and then this dry roasted Porter closes with some dry roasted hops. What separated the roasted aroma from the roasted taste was the black cherry profile. The black cherry profile was more pronounced in the taste than in the aroma. That was the only thing separating the two. They both had the same levels of malts, coffee beans, hops, and chocolate.

Mouthfeel: This Porter was medium bodied with a low level of carbonation and with a dry roasted aftertaste (no duh!) of dark roasted malts, a touch of bitter dark chocolate, a hint of roasted coffee beans, and plenty of black cherries. It had a huge amount of roasted flavors, but it was a bit too dry. It's pretty bad when you have to drink water with your beer or your mouth will dry out.

Drinkability: What a great dry roasted Porter! Even though it comes in a big 750ml bottle, this beer won't last long. Sometimes it can get a little dry, but it's still packed to the gills with dry roasted flavors. Just make sure you have a glass of water nearby the dryness gets to you. A know it's a poor joke, but I have to say it. I would like "moor" of this beer please.

Pours a dark brown almost black color with a small tan head, the head fizzes away fast like a cola would (quite odd) and leaves no lacing or even a cap. I find it ironic that on the label it says "A thick and creamy head floats above a black brew", alas no such head for me.

Smell is heavily roasted, lots and lots of roasted malt along with some licorice.

Taste is very nice, assertive carbonation tingles on the tongue but doesn't interfere, in fact it enhances the roasted malt aspect, a dark bitter chocolate/coffee aftertaste lingers yet doesn't overstay its welcome, not overly thick or cloying.

Pleasantly surprised by this porter, honestly at $4 a bottle this is a steal, a fairly straight forward American porter but a solid one nevertheless.

Bottle shared by Mark – much obliged!

Pours one shade from black with a tan head that leaves solid lacing.

Smells of heavily roasted malts with hints of semi-sweet chocolate and tobacco. Also present are very slight amounts of char.

Tastes similar to how it smells, though smoother. Robust roasted malts up front are joined quickly by smooth semi-sweet chocolate flavors. Midway through, the tobacco and hints of smokiness come into play, carrying through to a solidly bitter finish. Mouthfeel is good, with decent carbonation.

Overall I really enjoyed this beer, though I’m partial to dry examples of the style and those that lean toward the roasted end of the spectrum. Well worth a shot.

22oz bomber into nonic.

*new* review 7/4/2010 (see below for original).

The first attempt of this beer was a C. Sour, fizzy, and just not pleasant overall. I got it at a store in DC which probably had it on the shelf for a long time. Second attempt was from a local Whole Foods, and I trust the beer guy there.

Much smoother character, with a solid head, and good carbonation. Roasty malts and hints of chocolate and cream. The beer is very well balanced with a bit of hops hidden in the background, but they certainly aren't the focus of this one.


Pitch black hue with a rather large low-density head. The bubbles are relatively big, but don't last long, making it very fragile. Once the head settles to a thin cap, patches of bubbles rise to the top and immediately break.

A good amount of roastiness among a bit of molasses and dark chocolate. Overall aroma is on the lighter side.

The high carbonation, and dare I say fizziness, distracts a bit from the flavor. The roasted malt flavor is there along with a bit of sourness, possibly from bottle conditioning gone awry. Medium bodied.

Looking at other reviews, my experience isn't uncommon. This beer has a lot of potential once the quality control gets ironed out. I say grab a bottle, and see if you get lucky.

Woody, chocolate, and marshmallows in the aroma. Huge head, light cocoa in color that sits above a deep mahogany brown colored beer. Rich toasted chocolatey malt flavor leaves a marshmallow/chocolate aftertaste. Body is on the lighter side, yet the beer is full of flavor, making for a highly drinkable beer.

Received in a trade (I don't remember from who, probably GoGriz, but maybe Vermonthiker), thanks to whoever sent this to me.

Poured into 10oz glass. Poured very lively, a tall lively head that had long lasting retention and no lacing. The beer was black, no translucence.

The aroma was very smoky and peaty, with a nice malt base. On the tongue, the beer was very effervescent, bubbly all the way across the tongue. There were strong peat and smoke flavors.

As far as body, the beer was a bit thin for the style, but that didn't hurt this beer at all. Drinkability was very good, for a peaty beer, this is an easy drinker.

Overall, this is a fantastic beer. I want more. This is a must try if you get the chance.

Wow...what a head!!! A large creamy, bi-colored (light and dark tan) was present with a dark almost black color...real eye candy. Smell was nutty and oak-like, suggesting an oak barrel. Taste was full-bodied with nutty, oak-like characteristics and a distinctive, bitter aftertaste that was very nice. Mouthfeel was rounded, with decent body. Nicely drinkable for the 7.0 abv. A definite recommendation.

Pours a nice dark brown (no light showing thru) with a frothy bubbly chocolate milk head and some good lacing.

Some molasses and licorice, as well as cocoa in the scent. Good dark roast malt aromas.

Deep roasted malt, cocoa powder, licorice, and a slight sour hint dominate here. The cocoa powder element is cool -- with that bitter and earthy element, which then turns into licorice bite. The deep roast has a light smoky element. I really like the flavor of this one.

Creamy, not overly carbonated, and smooth. A medium to lighter mouthfeel makes this one a real drinker (well, it is in a bomber, so I guess I'll drink it!). Great flavors, rich complexity, but not cloying. Once again, another great one from Cisco. Price was under $8.00, but I wish this was available in 6-er. Been waiting for this one for a while and was not disappointed. This brewer is fast becoming one of my favorites. Nothing extreme, but extremely well done. This is absolutely worth a try.

I'm not sure if there is a quality control issue, or the Cisco brewery is getting its act together more recently, but the porter I had was heavily carbonated, really frothy, very fresh, and very good. There were too many uneven reviews for me to believe that there may be other factors at work with this brewery. The beer pours a very dark color and has a very thick, dark, frothy head that laces and retains and retains. No complaints there. The smell is big roasted malts, some chocolate notes as well. The taste is dark chocolate with some cherry notes, there is a coffee flavor to this beer, and clearly some very big roasted malt flavors. The beer is creamy smooth with a very nice mouthfeel. This is a great porter, not so much of the English variety, but a real pleaser nevertheless. The 7% ABV is non existent and there is just enough of a hop presence in the finish to let you know that this is more than a well carbonated dark chocolate milk shake. L'Chaim.

Update 8-2009: this beer is really awesome with a really nice creamy base, lots of cherry chocolate cocoa notes. Excellent porter, with lots of big roasted malts on the palate.

I'll admit that I had to try this one just cause it was from the Cape...hehe

Appearance: Pours an extremely dark brown, sort of the color of root beer, with a thin mocha head that disappears rather quickly like soda carbonation. It's actually darker than root beer though and only shows that color near the edges--otherwise, it's pretty pitch black and almost terrifying, obliterating the text on the side of the glass. Once the head disappears, it looks flat save for tiny carbonation bubbles rising to the top here and there on one side, and a mocha foam on the other (extremely odd). On the one side it looks somewhat normal for a porter that's been sitting out a few minutes. On the other side, it looks flat and kind of scary. There's a sheet of fine, pretty lacing, but it doesn't stick one bit.

Smell: I can smell this one from a couple feet away as I write this, and the smell wafting from afar is extremely excellent. Coffee and cocoa are the heavy and dominant notes here, with dark fruits such as cherries and raisins wafting up in the nose. Slight caramel notes are mixed in, as well as some bitter burnt toast and smoke notes--maybe even a hint of bacon cooking, though as a vegetarian I am pretty sensitive to that smell. Slight peppermint.

Taste: The taste is superb as well. Chocolate, Peppermint, Coffee, Licorice, and burnt toast blend together extremely well. Typical porter notes blend in with some sour cherries. The hops are understated on this one, and it is smooth, creamy, and malty. Light and simple, but with just enough complexity to keep this one interesting.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel, as somewhat evident from the slightly off-putting experience, is not great. Extremely low carbonation means this one is pretty flat. There are some little bubbles, but it feels like it's been sitting out open for a few hours. I don't know if this is typical or a bad bottle. I can see what this one would be like if the carbonation were bumped up a bit, and it's got a lot of promise.

Drinkability: Easily drinkable. Despite the mouthfeel, this one goes down easily, with great smell and taste. Now if the carbonation were bumped up, it would be a perfect porter to session (can you session a 7%?).

From the 22 fl. oz. bottle with no bottling or expiration date or other kind of batch code. Sampled on February 14, 2010. It pours an opaque dark brown to nearly black with about a finger of tan head that fades a little bit but generally remains alive for the whole experience. The aroma is a hearty mixture of coffee, dark malts, and licorice. The medium to bold mouthfeel lends itself well to the smashing taste of coffee grinds, smoked but subtle hops, and a tangy dash at the finale. A very enjoyable beer.

As I redo my “Master Database of Beers”, I found some detailed notes on about 500 beers I thought lost forever, so I’ve decided to post them to the site, not for the numbers, but for a “failsafe source” for future reference.

The beer pours an almost onyx color, the head planetary in size, creamy, and a nice light chocolate color, as it erodes a thick and glutinous sheet of lace forms to meld with the glass. The aroma of toasted barley, sweet, caramel and also a bit coffee like, a treat for the schnozzle with the start rich in malt, slightly sweet and the top middling in feel to the palate. Finish is light to moderately carbonated, the hops masterfully spicy and the aftertaste quite dry and lingering, a marvelous porter in my book and one unfortunately for me not available in the Southwest.

Purchased in Bennington, VT at the what I still like to call The Smoker's Den.

22 oz. bomber poured into a nonic.

Pours a complete onyx black with no light coming through. A one finger tan colored head rests above the darkness leaving a thin wall of lacing on the sides of the glass. First whiff consists of big roasted malts. A touch of sweet chocolate is there, but mostly smokey aromas and deep dark coffee. Some earthy hops tickle the nose as well. Taste is very simalar to the smell. French Roast coffee beans, toasted grains, and smokey malts. A light brown sugar midway with dirty hops and more smokiness. Aftertaste is fairly bitter with a semi-sweet chocolate flavor and bark. Such a smooth feel in the mouth a with the slightest bit of carbonation, very nice. Surprised to see this beer at 7% abv as I put it down pretty quick. A fine American Porter indeed, I'll have to pick up another bottle next time I'm home visiting the family. The $5.49 price tag ain't too shabby either.

This is a nice porter...more of an after-dinner brew. Would probably go great with non-chocolate desserts. Think hot/cold apple crisp.

Pours an opaque black. The head is a delicious-looking tan. Lacing is minor and less than I expected.

The primary aroma is coffee and malt, with hints of bitter cocoa.

Coffee is also the most prominent flavor here. Hops don't play a big role - or maybe they're just masked by the malt and bitter chocolate aftertaste that comes quick after you swallow.

It feels a bit more carbonated on the tongue than I expected - although it's not overwhelming.

Don't see this as a session beer. Although the alcohol content isn't overpowering, this brew fills you up quick from the above-average weight and carbonation. Most likely, you'll reach for a glass of water after your first pint instead of another pint, because it's fairly dry.

Overall, a good porter. I'm starting to roll my eyes now at every new porter I come across that sports coffee and chocolate flavors and aromas, because it seems to be the common theme for craft porters now. However, for that genre, this is a good pick and recommended if, again, you're looking more for an after-dinner brew.

Was in the mood for something porterish today, so I swung by Jaspers. No Smuttynose Baltic Porter... bah! Spotted this from Cisco, and their description took me in. Snagged a 22oz bottle for $4.99. Hope it's worth it; here goes...

Came out of the bottle into my nonic pint looking opaque and dense, a murky brown sliding into the glass like oil into an engine. Head a a rich tan hue, creamy and fine, lasting well with decent lacing. The aroma is lovely! Chocolate and cocoa waft forth, as if I were taking in a brownie dipped in hot fudge sauce. Body is a sliver above medium, though I was hoping it would be nice and chewy. It has an airyness about it which keeps things light on the tongue, though without getting prickly.

Taste follows the aromas lead, hitting you up with milk chocolate notes, some cocoa powder, a smidge of bitter, dark choco, a little mocha, and even a hint of smokiness. Dry from start to finish, the choco malts are ever-present and quite enjoyable. An ever-so-subtle suggestion of floral hops can be detected near the conclusion of things as well. Though nothing that the tickerati would beat the doors down for, this one is solid, fairly-priced, and satisfying. Prosit!!

On draft at the source. First pour off a fresh keg. Nitro.

A: An initial cascade of beer waves to make the surf at Cisco beach proud. Settles in to a black stillness. A permanent 1/4 inch of white frothy head (until the first taste).
S: Light chocolatey notes.
T: Milk chocolate which intensifies slightly as it warms.
M: Light & Creamy. Light carbonation.
O: Nicely done porter. Fares well on nitro. Perfect accompaniment to a cool September day.
