3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On Nitro. Deep brown color with reddish hues at the bottom of the glass. Foamy tan head. Toasted malt aroma but not much else- this beer was served too cold for my liking and in a frozen glass. Caramel and chocolate malt flavors along with some roasted malts. Pretty nice but Iím not crazy about itís serving temp or the fact that they served it on nitro.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap 5 oz. sample at BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse in Vienna (Tyson's Corner), VA.
Clear, but very dense, black-mahogany with a nice creamy khaki head and excellent lacing.
Aroma of molasses, citrus, mango and chocolate.
Taste of chocolate, nuts, roasted malt and tangerine.
Medium/light body and low/medium carbonization.
Leaner and fruitier than a typical porter, but interesting.

On Tap at the Brew pub. Pours a dark opaque brown with a nice lasting tan head and abundant lacing. The nose is not very strong - malty. The taste is roasted malt and a bit of vanilla. The palate is medium-full and watery with a balance of carbonation. Not too bad.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft in Florence - recently stopped commenting appearance but I must say this has nice lacing. Must be a nitro porter. Creamy and metallic. Third sample from brewer and this one is light as well. Palate ruins this beer.

Draft flight 10/28/10 (Tucson-Broadway)-Pours a dark brown with an amber head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malt. Taste of the same with some smoke coming thru. This medium bodied brew is a bit light and weak for a porter but has big smoke and bacon.

Pour on tap at the brewpub, dark brownish black pour with thin tan head, aroma brought notes of slight roast, caramel, toffee, touch of chocolate and cocoa, hints of coffee bean, touch of spice. Taste is a mix of toffee, chocolate, roast, hints of cocoa, coffee, finishing with some bitter spice and more roast.
