Happy to be first to review the bottle and the 12th overall review of this fine Porter from Miami. Bought at KUSH, a must visit brew-pub. Also recommend miamibrewbus.com.
Also sampled their Conical Black Ale, a 3.85 too.

Bottle into a shaker pint

A: Pours a dark black beer with massive three-finger, creamy mocha colored head, that lasts, laces, and caps the beer. A great treat to look at.

S: Smell rocks it for me, it's hoppy with burnt roasted malt. floral, herbal, and a little chocolate mint.

T: Follows the smell with herbal flower garden, muted chocolate, and resolving with floral hops.

M: medium body, with a nice herbal, creamy, drying finish.

O: it's a hoppy porter. I like them this way so good for me.

Saw this at TW my favorite style and a local brewer, picked up a sixer, let's give one a whirl. Popping the top I get a hints of cocoa and molasses and brown sugar and some black licorice.. Pours to a super opaque dark brown with a nice one finger head. On the taste this brew has a nice dark roasted malt up front then gets a little charred and sweet then finishes dryly roasted with a slight bitterness and black licorice warmness. This is a very fundamental porter. Very tasty, can't put it down. I will seek out this brew. Guaranteed to be Zika free.

Very nice surprise from Florida. I bought a six pack (tough to find!) and poured from there. Light head, but strong taste first of malt with coffee & a touch of chocolate, finishing with a mild hoppy bitterness. Not too bitter (much less than Guiness), and a nice mix of flavors that make this a great dinner beer.

Poured from a 12oz undated bottle into a Prairie tulip. L: dark brown with ruby hues, a half finger of tan head that quickly disappated to a thin ring with thin legs and no lacing S: almost smells like sweet lactose similar to a milk stout, maybe a candied nuttiness, with slight dark malts in the background T: this almost taste more like a nutty brown ale than a porter, although there is a slight bitter burnt malt flavor F: very watery and thin O: not something I would buy to drink at home again, but if I was out, there are far worse things I could drink

12oz bottle. No code date apparent. Appearance: Jet black, opaque, with a moderate khaki head. Aroma: Dark chocolate dominates, with some dark fruit and light roast. Taste: Rich, toasted and roasty maltiness with a nice layer of dark chocolate. Coffee notes pop up on the back end but are reserved and complimentary. Mouthfeel: Medium body with low carbonation. Finish: Lingering chocolate and light roast bitterness. Overall: A rich, smooth Porter with different layers of complexity, while remaining very easy drinking. Nice dark chocolate flavor is prominent, with roast providing a background complimentary note.

on tap poured into shaker pint

A: very dark beer small creamy looking mocha colored head

S: a little hoppy some burnt roasted character maybe a little chocolate

T: nice muted chocolate a little bit of toffee and just the lightest hints of floral hops

M: medium to a little lighter a slight creamy finish

O: it's a solid porter I like the hints of hops I think the bring out that burnt roast taste a little more. If you like porters you will probably like this one but don't go out of your way to get it.

Growler fill into a pint glass. 2 fingers tan head. Murky brownish almost black color. Smells like bakers chocolate. Taste bittersweet, chocolate, roasty. Clean, creamy finish.

Arrives black with a thin, dark tan layer of film atop. Decent lace but retention of the head is not so great.
Smell is coffee, nearly burnt malt, bitter chocolate. Good balance but screams of bitterness ahead.
Taste is bitter chocolate, coffee, heavily toasted malts, a bit ashy truth be told. Balance is good.
Dry from middle on, coffee fades thankfully but the ashiness lingers, albeit lightly.

On tap at Dixie Bar and Grill. Served in a nonic pint.

Appearance - Black with a huge creamy khaki head. Lots of lacing.

Smell - Coffee roasted malt. Some caramel.

Taste - Taste is roasted malt. Gets a little sweet before a nice bitter roasted malt kicks in. Dark chocolate and coffee bitter finish.

Mouthfeel - Drinks very well. Pleasant bitter finish. Very clean.

Overall - Very well made porter. I know these days everyone's looking for crazy adjunct porters, but this works very well all on its own.

What a great surprise. The beer is smooth, clean taste, earthy tones and no lingering after taste. Light on the carbination which makes room for more beer. Enjoyed it at the brewery and will visit often for this little nugget.

Light-medium bodied, robust flavor of roasted coffee. Slight hints of chocolate. Well rounded. I can see how Wynwood Brewing took home Gold at 2014 GABF with this fresh local brew.

a pretty darn robust porter, more in line with what some of the new england brewers are doing than with what would seem to make sense for the florida climate, but i have no complaints about a porter with some stature, thats for sure. sturdy dark brown body, lots of roasted barley in this, built more like a stout in some ways, less chocolate malt than expected, but not lacking for grain depth at all. maybe some oats help give it all this body. the flavor is balanced bitterness from the roasted malt, not english really at all either, but not very hoppy, not much yeast flavor here. strange stylistically i guess, not really fitting either regional specifics super well. its just a nice showcase of the grain here, and the feel is palate coating and long in the finish, although the carbonation isnt low. well rounded beer, a little simple for the more adventurous drinker, but something a little bigger than i am used to from the guys down south and with a cool heavy roasted and dark chocolate complexion that is distinct. i liked this one quite a lot, and see it going well this time of year. apparently the only florida GABF gold medal winner to date, but i can not confirm that claim...
