Poured from a bottle into a stout glass head fairly small and is a dark cream color a little darker than cinnamon butter you sometimes get at restaurants. Body of the beer is very dark pretty well impervious to light short of the edges where some leaks through. Smell is very chocolatey with a very slight cherry essence. Tastes great, slightly bitter-sweet chocolate and smooth across the tongue with lingering bitterness that fades within a few seconds. Overall I'd get it again, a nice random pick up from the grocery store.

A: Pours with a nice one finger head, off-white in color. This brew appears almost black. Head settles down but does not disappear. Excellent lacing.

S: Immediate on the nose is roasted malt, alcohol, and fresh yeast. This beer smells very fresh.

T: Taste is similar to first impression/smell. Roasted malt up front, generous carbonation, fading into molasses, and finally finishing out with bitter hop at the end.

M: This beer does not feel as heavy as it looks. It has generous, nice mouth feel up front, but finishes lighter and dry.

O: I really like this beer. I was pleasantly surprised. I can tell that care and thought went into the brewing of this beer. If I were to brew it I might try to finish it out with a bit higher final gravity. I will be looking forward to more from Uberbrew.

Picked up a 4 pack (pints) from Kroger in Durham, NC for $5.19. Bought it in the cold case and drank it at about 55 degrees...not extremely cold

It says this is 6.5% ABV on the can...did they raise the ABV? It says its 5.52% on the page. It also says its made by World Brews in Rochester NY.

I'm drinking it straight from the can but i poured off some into a glass to see it's color. It's nice and dark with a rich head!!! looks nice!

Great flavor and a nice bit of bitterness. Its a excellent porter for the price...i like how canned beers are really starting to raise the bar as far as quality goes. 5 dollars for a 4 pack of this is a steal. I will review the bottle version of this and update to see if there is a noticeable difference.

Porter fans will like this.

The beer poured a nice dark brown color with a TON of head (about 4 fingers). It smells very toasty and roasted. Sipping it I get a lot of coffee and especially roasted malt.

Its a VERY nice beer to drink. The liquid is smooth both in feel and taste. Drinking it was very enjoyable, in fact that's the thing that comes to mind the most "This feels nice to drink". A very good beer to try if you like the dark stuff!

Brewer notes 35 IBU

Served from the tap at the brewpub in downtown Billings MT.

Appears very dark brown, not quite black. thin off white head that fades. Aroma is mild roastiness, not really any hops flavor. Taste is a bit bitter from coffee and cocoa flavors, a little smokiness too. Medium body, with higher carbonation. works for the beer, nice easy drinking session style brew.

Serving Type - Bottle

Appearance - Black with traces of ruby red/tan. 1/4 creamy head with some nice lacing.

Smell - Roasted malts, brown sugar/molasses. Coffee, some dark chocolate. Classic nutty aroma mixed with some raisin and plum at the finish.

Taste - Well, it looks good, smells good, now on to the taste. First sip has a grape/raisin/plum fruity flavor. The malts are the backbone but im surprised because of the smell, its not sweeter. The coffee aspect is also not as strong as I expected.

Mouthfeel - Dark fruits coat the tongue with some sweetness. Malts, and mild coffee come out on the palate. Aftertaste is watery, light malts and some dark fruits.

Overall - This isn't bad at all. Not the coffee/chocolate porter flavor that most have but, this is smooth, flavorful and easy to drink. Would be a fine starter porter for anyone, or for a change of pace. For the price, I think was 7.99$ a 6er, its worth the price but I can get great lakes Edmond Fitzgerald for 8.99$, which is a far superior porter.
