Named for the ridiculous 4 foot dirt pile we had to put our brewery on to get us out of the FEMA-designated 100 year floodplain (no-one can remember this part of Spearfish ever flooding). This robust porter is black in color, is medium-bodied and has a rich, roasted malt flavor ending with a pleasing hop flavor and mild hop bitterness.

Tap @ my hotel, Rapid City. Jet black pour. Heavy cream head, light brown. Sweet semi-sweet chocolate. Loads of roast. Roasted grain flavor. Nice coffee-like flavor. Very hearty. Full of flavor. Loads of burnt grain & roasted malt flavor. I love this Porter. (3450) my first South Dakota beer!

Big thanks to Brian for the can/South Dakota tick! Pours near black with a brown head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has a good amount of roasted malts with a bit of a salty meat note and a bit of sweet dark grains. Flavor has a good amount of roasted malts up front with a hint of smoke and a decent amount of sweet dark grains.

Cant see through a glass of this beer, tis so dark with a light brown head. A sweet chocolate aroma and tastes a mild chococoffee with a soft lingering after effect of hops. The name fits it well.
