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.

12oz can thanks to Jake65. Ticks off my last remaining State. Pours a watery but opaque black with some sticky, beige head. Nose is very nice, chocolate, vanilla, mild toast, malt, molasses, dark brown sugar, earthy, some iced mocha. Flavor is very similar, lots of solid flavor, vanilla, chocolate, molasses, dark brown sugar, earthy, a little bit of umami, some toast, a little coffee ground. Clean, dry finish. Very nice. My can said 6%, very drinkable.

Big thanks to Lowery bear for this uber SoDak tick. Black with tan head. Sweet and slightly roasted aroma. Very sweet flavor, hint of roast, some slight hop notes in the finish. This is the porter?

Tasting at Bruce’s Pad. South Dakota tick! Thanks Ryan! Murky dark brown beer with a tidy pale tan head. Palate is light and crispy. Light and sweet dark malts with a little not so sweet chocolate. A little ripe orange. Light dry finish. Not bad.

The taste is roasted malt, toast, earth, brown bread, cocoa, light toast, decent bitterness, cardboard, caramel and cola with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Fairly standard porter by all acounts. Decent nonetheless.

Can shared at my 5K tasting at Bruce’s pad, huge thanks to Ryan for leaving this state whale with us to tick the fuck out of SD, 13/11/13. Very dark mahogony brown with a light tan covering that thins to a swirl. Nose is dark toffee, earthy tones, light cocoa, mineral notes. Taste comprises light roast, treacle toffee, brown sugars, brown bread, earthy cocoa. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, drying finale with light roast. Ok porter but that was not what this tick was all about !

Big cheers to Ryan for this. Nothing to rave on about here, it’s just an absolutely solid as fuck porter. Easy drinking. Just solid with a little roughness to give it that something extra. The name is appropriate. Good stuff

Pours an opaque brown with 1/2 finger head leaving mild lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, a little chocolate and a hint of grassy hop. Hint of sweet, mildly bitter. Medium body. Long rasty finish. Not too bad.
