Tap at Barcade: Pours thick oily with an initial thick brown head which fades. Nice roasty cappucino aroma. The flavor has suggestions of coffee/java icecream, followed by sweet yeasty fruityness of mangos, papayas. It’s a bit syrupy though. The flavors are great, but for some reason they don’t seem to mesh well. Still very quality and enjoyable.

This brew pours nearly black with little head. Roasty with some maltiness, the body is a bit on the light side.

Wow - intense, rich, and chocolatey.
Its like drinking a chocolate truffle.
Slightly roasty malt flavors balance
out the sweetness. Hearty body, and very
dark black color that shows a hint of brownish
red when tipped and help to the light.

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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thin dense head of fine bubbles. Recedes slowly with minimal carbonation. Rich roasty aroma with some sweet molasses, black currents and bit of milk chocolate. Color is a deep dark brown with a hint of red along the edges. Sweet chocolaty flavor with some roasted grains, a bit of coffee, lactose and sweet malts. Kind of gritty carbon in the mouthfeel. Light alcohol presence. Creamy and silky smooth going down with some lingering sweet malts and and a dry roasty finish. Pretty damn good.

Growler via the ever generous Degarth! - Thanks Joe! - Shared last night with a non rating friend - Pours dark black with a big mocha head that stays pretty well and leaves a fair amount of lacing on the english pint that I served it in. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, and burnt malts.. Some fudgy notes there as well. Aroma was pretty dessert-like. Flavor starts out with fudge, coffee, vanilla, caramel, then some roasted notes mostly come through. A good degree of burnt flavor too before the dry yet lingeringly sweet finish. Good smooth balance and a creamy mouthfeel make this one a fine example of a porter.. Reminded me a lot of Thirsty Dog Old Leghumper.. Very robust and delicious..

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2010 From a cask at the General Lafayette Inn and Brewpub. Coffee and sweet malt aroma, black pour with light orange hilites. Full and flavorful, a bit dry. Very nice porter.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2007 Draft at Capone’s. Pours black with a nice tan head. Chocolate and milky aroma. Medium mouthfeel and creamy texture. Flavor of unsweetened dark chocolate and mild roast coffee with a subtle tang. Just enough bitterness on the finish to balance this beer out. Reminds me of a coffee mocha shake. A very easy drinking
