Keg - If not black then not far off with a dense, creamy, lasting and lacing tan head. Dark, dried fruits. Both slighty tangy and salty. Liqorice, smoke, chocolate, coffee, dark chocolate and roasted malt. Finishes long, dry and malty-bitter. Medium-bodied, mostly soft carbonation with a rounded mouthfeel.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ Bridgeport. Pretty much black in color with a tan head. Lots of smoke and roasted malts. Kind of heavy on the coffee grounds as well. Some dark chocolate and mild hop character. The flavor is pretty reflective of the aroma. Maybe a little watery on the tongue. Kind of dusty too. Smoke, roast, and coffee. Okay, I guess. Just not my thing.

On nitro. Pretty pitch black with creamy tan head. Mild roasted malt aromas. Really smooth, medium bodied, straightforward porter. Not too smoky or roasted, letís you appreciate the dark malts. Great clean beer.

"fairly textbook from the english standpoint. maybe a little thin for the american standard, but itís got a good roasty chocolate and coffee nose with an additional hint of molasses and hops in the flavor."

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2014 (Tap) A unique porter with quite a bit of coffee flavor and aroma. Not a great porter but it is distinct at least!

On tap at Bridgeport, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out notes of coffee and a touch of coffee. Flavour is light, with dry cocoa powder and a touch of coffee. Decent porter, but rather boring.
