Poured into a pint glass. Appearance is a very dark brown with a tan head and a tiny bit of lacing. The nose is coffee and chocolate with a bit of roasted grain. The taste is fairly light compared to the nose. Roasted malt and some coffee and chocolate. Feel is one of a medium body with some slight dryness. Good roast. Drinks well and is a nice fall beer.

This porter was a great blend of bitter and taste, something I have come to expect from a porter. We ended the night on this brew, and it definitely was worth the extra pain the next morning.

Very Dark but clear amber color, with no head but a little lacing, Plenty of smoke and peat and a balanced carbonation make it a nice porter.

Tap at Downtown. Pours dark brown with a thin filmy brown head. Nose is roasted malts, coffee, touch of vanilla. Quite robust. Mouth is malty, roasted, even slightly sour. Chocolate, coffee. Towards the end an almost powdery mouthfeel. Could be better, but good effort.
