COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The quintessential General Lafayette Inn brew, we carry on the tradition at the Crow of producing this rich, flavorful dark ale. Call it a Porter, call it a Stout, we call it delicious. Chocolate, coffee, and roasted flavors blend with an uncanny drinkability in this local legend.

BeerandBlues2 (10125) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 31, 2008
Bottle received via trade with zathrus13. Pours black with a small, rocky, light brown head, mostly diminishing with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (chocolate, coffee, burnt), light hops (herbs), heavy yeast (horse blanket, barnyard, leather) with notes of prune, tar, and soy sauce. Full bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation, and a metallic finish. Average duration, light sweetness, acidity, and bitterness.

Bottle served in an English pint glass. Very dark brown topped by a small but lasting tan head. Smells of chocolate cake, plums, earth, and coffee. Tastes of coffee, cocoa, caramel. Finishes dry with an earthy bitterness, a slight alcohol burn, and a touch of lactic sourness. Very tasty.

pineypower (2555) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - OCT 25, 2008
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours out black with a small to moderate brown head. Aroma is of roasted malt, chocolate and a slight earthy note. Taste is complex with a very nice mouthfeel, roasted malts come together with chocolate and some coffee and earthy notes going on in there also, the chocolate is center stage without going over the top. Very well done

Bottle thanks to Zathrus13 via BMan113VR. Thick black pour. Light brown head. Nose: roasted malt, smoke, blue stone, the odd smell that exists in the north in the late evening when it is not quite snowing yet but It will be in a few hours. (Message me if you know about this!) Taste: metal, water, grapes, chocolate, meat smoke.

douglas88 (6336) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 21, 2008
Bottle shared by footbalm, thanks man. Pours a dark brown body with a medium light brown head. The aroma is light coffee and roasted malts, no alcohol at all. The flavor had become a bit oxidized perhaps; a sour woody, roasted malt, some roasted coffee beans and some acidic notes. Not really sweet at all, but altogether not a bad beer. I’m skeptical of the quality of this particular beer and I’ll try to rate again soon. Not bad though.
