love the nitro head, but just like a guiness it’s disappointingly thin once you gt through that. otherwise had great roasty flavor to it.

A very robust and tasty porter at the brewpub. Nitro gives it the characteristic nitro smoothness and head. tasty is roasty and full flavored. Plenty of hops to back it up. Very nice.

On tap at Cumberland brew pub. Brown with thin tan head. Aroma of caramel, honey and roasted malts. Taste of sweet malts, honey, caramel and light chocolate. Smoot with a sweet finish. Not a bad effort.

On tap at the brewpub. Nice and darkly rich coloring but not so great of a head (small and settling) - this brewpub tends to pour beers intentionally without heads though. Smells of roasted malts, molasses, raisins, and a hint of hops. Smooth on the palate with a heavy body but still a somewhat light feel. The flavor was by far the best quality, it really blew me away. It has by far the most hoppy flavor of any porter I have had, and the hops work really well with the typical porter flavors (which I wouldn’t have expected). Great and unique balance. Overall: best cumberland brew in my opinion.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - NOV 5, 2007
Nitro at the brewpub. Poured an attractive cloudy dark brown color. Head was light tan and left some good lace behind. Aroma was of subdued chocolate and light roasted malt. Smooth and slightly sweet on the tongue with chocolate and roasted nut flavors. Almost chewy. Good stuff.

RBSG 2007 Grand Tasting. Thanks to wheninhell for sending this north with us to the Grand Tasting! Hazy brown with no head. This beer is still - too bad a growler of a nitro beer doesn’t really work. Nutty, mild nose with a nutty chocolate and coffee flavor to back it up. Some pine noticed in the finish. I’d love to try this fresh!

Skyview (5109) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Sampled at RBSG ’07 and shared by maniac, pours an opaque dark brown brew with a creamy beige head that dissolves slowly to a good lacing. Aroma of smoked, toasted dark malt, with scents of chocolate, coffee and some piney hops. Taste is full bodied, with flavors of caramel, chocolate and some floral hop taste later. Finish is smooth, creamy and then a floral hop aftertaste. Pretty average porter.

JK (4283) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUL 6, 2007
A thick, black beer. Aroma has some smoke. Flavor has a touch of smoke, as well as light coffee and chocolate. But overall the flavors and aromas are far too light.

Kinz (3188) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUN 29, 2007
Thanks to Maniac for the sample. Black with brown at edges. Light aromas of coffee and chocolate. Flavor matches. A very faint floral hop note on the finish. A bit thin.

RBSG 2007 Grand Tasting. Thanks to wheninhell for providing this for us to take along. Clear brown body with no head. Grainy burnt malt aroma. Sweet malt flavor with some light nuttiness.
