Entering old rates. Draft @ CCB and at Datz Deli. Couleur brune allant vers acajou, col épais beige. Arôme garde ce bouquet de seigle, laissant place à une brève note épicée-grains, le tout est accompagné d’un malté profond entre chocolat renforcé par ce profile léger de cumin. The pour yields a dark mahogany colored body with a glint of copper-chestnut translucency at the edges. Palais est complexe épais alternant malt chocolaté/grille houblonné légèrement en retrait pour l’amertume et une pointe épicée du seigle. Notable aussi ce côté Kümmel typique allemande et qui rajoute un léger soupçon de médicinal.

This porter was very interesting. Behind the usual rich cocoa and earthy notes arose a strong rye twang. The finish was the best though, nice and dry with a bitter bread aftertaste.

Draft @ CCB. Nose is plenty of light chocolate, roast, some spice, dark grains, and a hint of fruitiness. Pour is almost black with a light khaki head. Taste is pretty rye-forward with plenty of earthy malts (chocolate and roast). Nice and chewy texture to me but still very drinkable. Yet another great porter from CCB.

Nice malt and hop aroma has a small fruit tinge. Dark fruits and caramel with a grain dryness. Fruit and black malt finish. Interesting.

Tap at Kickbacks in Jax, FL. The pour is a deep cola red with an enormous, chunky, coffee head. Looks almost like a nitro pour. Very nice retention and big lacing. Nose is dark chocolate and raspberry and currants. Lots of red fruits. As it warms I come to the realization that this beer is actually funky. Sitting with it, I discover that somehow this batch of beer has been infected with Jolly Pumpkin’s terroir of wild yeast and bacteria. No joke. Straight up JP funk in the nose without a doubt. Must be from the Jolly Pumpkin barrels that have been sitting around in the brewery. The nose is excellent though: tropical fruits and pineapple with tart raspberry and mild acetobacter. Taste is quite tart and probably more attenuated than was intended. Spicy rye and fennel comes to balance providing earth to interplay with sharp lactic sourness and fruit. Thinner palate but not watery by any means. Perhaps an unintended masterpiece.

Draft at Kickbacks. Deep dark brown pour with a tan head. Scent is rye, roasted malt, chocolate and nuts. Taste is roasty, rye and earthy.

Pours deep amber with notes of chocolate and coffee. The malt pushed hard and you get the same deep flavors with the rye showing up during the tail end.

I love being out and getting to try local or bar only ticks! Had no idea what the Soggy Loaf was so I ordered it, better find after I learned it was a CCB. On-tap poured into a pint glass... Pours a very dark brown, sheeny glow. Not much, or any, carbonation on this though... The aroma is a touch light but its very good, so much going on but well integrated. It has a great standard porter backbone of coffee with some nice chocolate, but then there is tons of grainy rye, its deep and strong, they meld 50/50 perfectly. Some additional notes of caramel and hops add even more. Smells great... The taste is equally impressive, an extension of the nose, its just outstanding. Some bitter coffee at first, chocolate undertones, rye, with a slight pine finish. This is one of my favorite CCB beers, this is a must try at Datz!!

Growler @ Papsø. Pours a dark amber brown almost black color with a small off-white head. Has a roasted malty coffee and chocolate aroma. Roasted malty chocolate and rye bread flavor with hints of caramel. Has a roasted malty bready chocolate finish.
