@ Party Town / Florence KY - Clear very dark mahogany with a long-lasting 1/2" tan head, bands and streaks of lace. Taste is strong porter - roasted malt with burnt toast, chalky chocolate, and bittering that is nearly sour w/o reflecting the natural taste of hops. A unique brew, but not strong enough to require sipping, not tasty enough for gulping. Verdict: good not great.

Pours jet black with no head. Aroma big on roast, licorice, piney hops. Taste is bitter, roasty, pine and dark chocolate. Average hoppy robust porter

Heavily roasted, perhaps too much. Burnt bread and dark coffee flavors. Licorice, bitter chocolate, and a nice bit of floral hops round out the flavors. Medium body with a dry finish. I’m torn on this one. Not a huge fan of the flavor but still enjoyable.

Tapped at Avery, a very dark red brown. The aroma is hoppy, and very malty. The taste is smooth, hoppy but malty enough to over power.

An excellent porter. Chocolate and nutty with a hefty amount of bite that I assume comes from the hops.

11/15/13. 12oz bottle at Bad Habitz. Happy Birthday, rdixon77! This is one of those beers that’s always around but I had never rated it for some reason. Well, here goes, I guess. Dark pour, definitely more of a dark brown than a black, with a small khaki head. Ashy aroma, dry, mild chocolate. Ashy flavor, mild chocolate, chalky and dry. Not bad.

Very dark nearly black pour with light brown to red hue, thin spiderweb of offwhite head. Very light aroma of milk chocolate. Low carbonation, creamy mouthfeel, roasty finish. Great blend of porter flavors - bitter cocoa, flat syrupy cola, slightly acidic coffee, campfire smoke, hint of vanilla. Pretty good, pretty standard.

This is a black IPA. The hops are the main event. It does have some back notes of malt and toffee. It’s a bit bitter and bites the tongue.

Black. Large to medium fluffy, creamy beige head, lasting with good last. Aroma is sweet, roasty, chocolate, coffee, caramel, and some really nice hops backing. Flavor follows. Smooth, soft, light oily, some alcohol. Everything really comes together well. Medium body. Great sweet, roasty, hoppy balanced finish.
