An underrated porter. Nice roasted malt flavor. Deep chocolate color with medium head with one finger’s worth. Nice heavy palate that was quite smooth but not overly filling. Nice upfront roasted flavor that coated the tongue. Hints of nuttiness as well. Surprisingly good.

On draft at Republic in okc. Pours very dark brown with small thin head in a pint glass. Lots of dark choclate malts. Good mouth feel, some nice carbonation, but not too much. A bit heavy for a porter, but a very enjoyable beer!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler courtesy of BlueOkie. Pours deep mahogany with nice mocha head. The aroma is a bit odd with firm earthiness moving roasty with a mild background of red wine like fruity tannin tartness and then almost ashy and dark chocolate. The taste is pretty rich with malts and chocolate blending toward earthiness, some roasted malt astringency and then the out of place red wine tannin tartness. It ends mildly dry and roasty.
