An English style robust Porter with huge malt notes from Chocolate and Black malt matched with a huge use of Crystal malt to lend ruby hues to the corners of the glass. This dark brew is then highly hopped with imported Northdown and First Gold hops to lend a subtle earthiness in character.

On tap at Capitol City, Downtown location in July 2006. Reddish colour. Plenty of bitter coffee in the aroma and flavour. Rather light body. Quite strong hop presence. More toasty than roasty. Pleasant enough but not that robust - could use a little more depth and body.

Draft. Dark brown color, thin tan lacing. Mild roasty and coffee aroma. Mild sweet taste, with some dark fruit flavor coming through at the end. Medium body, ave carbonation. For me an average porter overall.

On draft at Capitol City Brewing Co. in Virginia. The beer is dark brown with a tan head that leaves ample lacing on the glass. Malt, roast, and chocolate are the main forces at work here. Pretty good. Decent balance. The main issue I have this brew is the body, which is thin and watery. Overall, this was one of the more enjoyable beers I have had from this brewery.

Tap at the Shirlington location. Dark pour but it doesn’t look overly dense. Spotty head. Roasted malts and some earthiness. Neither bitter nor sweet. Decent.

Black pour, tan head. Chocolate milkshake on the nose and across the tongue. Hops dry finish to a nice lingering smokiness.
