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

@ 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.

Draft. Muddy brown pour with no head. Aroma is caramel, slight nuttiness, earthy. Taste is toffee, caramel...these two stand out more than anything. Sweeter than I would like in a porter. Coffee and chocolate are there but not as pronounced.

This brew poured a small head of light brown colored fine to medium sized mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a opaque black colored body with no visible carbonation and a good lacing. The aroma is mild and contains notes of hop and malt. The mouthfeel is very hopped and tingly right from the start on through the finish with a lingering bitter aftertaste. The flavor is a combination of coffee, malt, hop, caramel, mollasses and roasted notes. Very tasty and has a lot of character to it even though it is a strange combination for a porter.

Black with a tan thin head, hoppy nose with evergreen and pine and hops in the taste. Interesting overall

Nice creamy head, dark red body. Solid medium body. Taste is somewhat toasted, but mainly bitter. This is like a darker version of their ESB, only not as good. Quite hoppy, but there’s just not that much else to it.

A good dark brown porter. A good even aroma. This had a nice easy to drink flavro. Was missing some of the good strong chocolate and roast flavors but was a good brew. Easy to drink.

Tasted 2007-06-18. Black/red colour with light head. Aroma of roasted malt and hops. Taste of coffee and roasted malt. Not the best porter IMO.
