3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark cola brown with a smaller head compared to the rest. The aroma is a bit roasty, coffee-chocolate. Pretty big flavor. Toffee comes forward from the rest. A bit more toffee than most similar beers I think. This would make a good beer float or beer icecream, I think.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
På fat @ Brewpub. Hälls upp nästan helt svart, moccafärgat skum. Kaffe och choklad i aromen. Mjölkchoklad, vanilj och kaffe i smaken. Rund beska. Aningen för söt för min smak, men på det stora hela en trevlig och lättdrucken porter. Gräddig munkänsla.

(US backlog Sep 2012) Draught@Capital City Brewing, Downtown DC 12/09/2012. Mild, mouth-filling, somewhat "lazy" and bland porter with dominant toasted notes, even some distracting sesame.

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
