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.

On tap. Very dark with nice thick head and thick lace all the way to the last drop. A nice porter that is well balanced

A perfectly serviceable version of the style. Kinda nutty, quite malty, slightly oily finish. It's ok.

Pretty good flavor over all but compared to really good porters... hmm not so much. A bit thin mouthfeel, but decent burnt malts.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours dark brown with red hues in the light. Small cream colored head. A bit light colored for the style. Smell is surprisingly good. Heavy roasted coffee notes and some chocolate. Taste is hidden behind lots of water. Good ess this is watered down. Slight nutty coffee here, but mostly water. Finishes plenty clean just no flavor. Very silky smooth mouthfeel though...probably because there is zero carbonation. Not something to have again, but not anything I'll spit out either. Underwhelming.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On a nitro tap at the Tuttle Crossing brewpub in Dublin, Ohio. Very smooth and creamy beer just like you would expect from a nitro tap, with a very long and attractive cascade into a creamy tan head. Dark beer that left sheets of lacing on the glass. Light chocolaty nose. Huge chocolate taste, almost like a chocolate milk shake. Some roasted grains and too sweet caramel with a long milk chocolate finish. It was a little too sweet for me. The nitro was a nice touch.
