Tap at the brewpub. The darkest brown with a "guiness-like" head that sticks around for the show and leaves an incredible amount of lacing. The aroma is underwhelming with hints of dark chocalate which is followed up by the flavor which is very slightly bitter with the mention of dark roasted chocolate malt. Very smooth and creamy in the mouth with very little after taste. Very drinkable, I could have drank this all night.

On tap at the brewpub. Black with a tan head that lasts forever. The glass remains completely coated with foam lacing that more aptly resembles stucco than lace. Toasty aroma. Ridiculously smooth and easy to drink. Reddish highlights when you hold the glass up to the light. Delicious.

Draft 10 oz at Cumberland. Black color with large light brown head that diminished slowly with good lacing. Moderate aroma. Medium to full body with smooth texture. Good smoke, caramel and malt flavor with a moderate sweet finish.

Tap and Nitro poured of course: A deep brown hue almost black with a large nitro produced tan head and good lace. The nose detected notes of walnut, chocolate and black malts, and some grassy hops. The taste is a straight forward easy going malt based porter with light acidic and fruit notes. The finish has some minor bitterness and hints of bready yeast. The feel is thin and lively, smooth and easy to drink. A good brew all things said.

Poured a dark brown with a medium tan head, very creamy looking, mmmm nitrogen. Aroma of roasted chocolate malts and nuts. Taste of dark chocolate and roasted malts with a creamy smooth finish.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2006 Black with tan head, nitrogen pour looks pretty. Aroma is very subdued, but I attribute this to the thick creamy head. Tiny nitro bubbles take their time rising to the top and give this beer a distinctive look. The nitrogen affects the mouthfeel which is similiar to Guinness, but this porter has a greater emphasis on roasted malts. Malty finish with a slight sweetness. Excellent beer, probably the best at Cumberland.

Had this in a sampling glass at the brewpub (and brought a growler home). Pours a dark brown color with a nice fluffy off-white head. The aroma isn’t very strong, but there is a bit of nice maltiness there. Wow, what a great taste. Extremely creamy and smooth. Drinkability and mouthfeel are top notch. Has a slight coffee and malty flavor. Some creamy chocolate there as well. Just wow. Best porter I’ve ever had.

Rich creamy head. Smooth roasty flavor that's slightly sweet. It's hard to find micro's that use nitrogen. Very nice!

Draft: this is a beautiful beer! Pretty much Guinness looking, but a very roasty nose and very chocolatey flavor. Easily my favorite Cumberland beer.
