Aroma is lighter but smoky oaky. A little earthy. A little campfire. Looks ok. A little light on the pour. Look darker brown in the glass. This really is the most porter like beer I think Iíve ever had.... Lighter but has a nice smoky and metallic and oak note. The key here is the taste is sharp and finishes quickly rather than having a lingering grossness. Palate is smooth. Lighter but still flavorful. This is why I love beer and this is why Iím sad I moved from michigan. This beer is so on point.... Perfect for the style. Lighter but with great flavors. The epitome of what a porter should be.

Thereís a dark red, almost orange hue that bleeds through the nearly black color of this porter - just enough to allow you peer inside (something you donít always get from a porter). What you see is what you get here: a dark, roasted experience, but with a thinness that reminds me less of a porter and more of a brown ale. The roast character in the nose is sweet and almost spiced, and once the beerís in the mouth its more obvious character really surfaces. Itís easy and thin in body, and the only thing thatís remotely harsh about the beer is itís intense roasted flavor. Some chocolate appears up front and oily, resinous barbecue pit-like flavors surface toward the finish. Itís heavily roasted, but thin, and only if I imagine comparing it to a brown ale do I start to notice its hop character. Itís simple, really, heavy on roast but not too taxing on the palate.

Pours black into a shaker. Mocha head with excellent retention recedes leaving trailing sheets. Dark smoky mocha aromas. Dry with sweet chocolate upfront turning to mild smoke before the lasting espresso finish.

12 oz bottled 3.5 months ago, purchased at Johnís Grocery ($1.79) and poured into a pint glass at home. Black appearance with a lingering tan head and thick lacing. Aroma of roast, dark malts, chocolate, coffee and caramel. Similar flavor, adding a mild earthy bitterness. Medium body, slick and smooth with average carbonation, a little dry. Rich and robust, but still pretty easy to drink.

Bottle, BBOTMC. Dark brown-black and opaque. Slightly roasty, a little smoky aroma, dry, roasty bitterness, faintly smoky taste. Medium-bodied, hickory-like finish. Very good.
