On-tap at the CCB, 5oz tasting glass... Pours a dark black, really looks good. A medium tan head rises, nice ring, lacing could be better... The aroma has tons of roast and dark chocolate not bad, but a surprising and unpleasant amount of alcohol... The taste is why to dry and bitter, not a enjoyable taste or mouthfeel. It does show off some really nice chocolate notes, but Iíd rather not be drinking a liquid version of newly crushed coffee beans, same texture too. This isnít bad, not something I would come back to though.

Tap at RNH. Aroma is lots of roasted malt, a bit of smoke. Dry and roasty, bitter chocolate, a bit of caramel, finishes smoky. A very solid dry stout.

On tap at the Coffee District. Dry and hoppy. Iím such a huge fan of the CCB, but this is not my favorite style...

PorterPounder (5542) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2011
Tampa, Fl - on tap at the brewery tasting room. Dark black pour, thickish mocha colored pour, decently thick lacing. Day old coffee notes in the aroma with some fresh lake water. Flavor has the same coffee essence, hints of smoke, touch of licorice. Good example of the dry stout style. Decently thick mouthfeel - some velvety smoothess - just the right amount of carbonation.

32 oz. growler from CCB. deep black pour with a 1 finger tan head - which fades rather quickly. dry roasted malt nose with a thin layer of bitterness. medium body - well carbonated - with layers of roasted malts, light coffee, chocolate, some dark fruit and citrus bitterness. dry oatmeal finish with a touch of smoke and coffee. excellent dry stout!

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2011 16 oz pint(maybe?) on-tap at a new bar Gainesville, so it was definitely fresh dude. Well balanced toasted malt flavor and hoppy finish. No off aromas or flavors, I enjoyed it and had a second pint. I would like to taste this beer on Nitro sometime too guys...

if you are going to drink a stout, this one is probably the one to do so. the finish is a little dry for my tastes but then again its supposed to be given the style. heavy on the malts, some honey notes, rye cereal-ness and pumpernickel twang. somewhat cocoa powder-y. very good for what it is.
