This medium-bodied ale is dark in color and deceiving on the palate. The glassy smooth finish of this beer is your first hint that dark in color doesn't always mean heavy in stomach.

Bottle, thanks Immanuel! Sweet chocolate malt aroma with notes of roasted malt. Pours dark brown with with a thin light brown head and a touch of lacing. Starts with roasted malt flavor with a nice medium body. Finishes smooth with the chocolate malt coating the palate at the end. Very good porter.

Sample at the brewpub. Pours nearly black with a medium tan head that recedes gradually to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, chocolate and coffee. Light-bodied with flavors of roasted coffee, chocolate malt and mild piney hops. The finish is roasty with a coffee and malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

jcr (2576) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle. Black body with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and vanilla. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Thin to medium body, watery texture, moderate to lively carbonation. Chocolate, roast and toffee taste. The body could be heftier, but an enjoyable porter nonetheless.

Thin for a porter but also very tasty. Perhaps this is a summer porter. It lacks the boozy, stickiness of a classic porter but is strong on bitter chocolates and roasted malt. I will definitely get more.

Pitch black with a khaki colored thin head. Aroma of roasted barley, dark chocolate, cocoa sweetness and coffee. Flavors of chocolate, roasted barley, coffee and some mild but noticeable hoppiness. Very roasty aftertaste. Light body with some moderate carbonation. Quite tasty and easy to drink.
