Had this very early in my craft days, and then again early in my rating days. Good beer but probably not as good as I think it is.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2013 Very black color, completely opaque with a fuzzy, dark-khaki colored head. Aroma consists of roasted malts with maybe a touch of smoked malt, too; oats and grains abound, along with a hint of woodiness and a slight mocha-java vibe. The taste has a good dose of roasted malts with a burnt and slightly smokey profile. Dark coffee beans, bitter chocolate, and heavy, heavy oats. The oat flavor is explosive. Dry, rustic oats coat the palate, also giving plenty of almost wheaty, grainy flavor. No much hoppage; bitterness comes from the roast. Very creamy, nice carbonation. One of Dragonmead’s best, no doubt.

Draft at brewery, nitro. Aroma is mostly malt. Taste is smooth as most nitros are. The taste is kinda bland though. A little disappointed a I was looking forward to it.

Sample at the brewpub. Pours flat black with a medium creamy beige head that diminishes slowly. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Light to medium body with a roasty character and flavors of malt, coffee and dark chocolate. The finish is sweet with a toasted malt aftertaste, Decent overall.

draft... another really disappointing porter by DM, the oats helped a bit as there was a nice sweet note but besides that no flavor

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured up via nitro tap at the Dragonmead brewpub with deep mahogany body and firm tan head. The aroma offers up mild forays of dark roasted malts, burnt malts and almost to charred maltiness. The taste is smooth and ushers in dark roasted malts to burnt malts as well as a mild minerally earthiness that seems a touch out of place.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nitro… RBSG 2010… Pours clear and very dark with flashes of crimson when held up to light. The head is large, creamy and light taupe in color with everlasting retention. Sweet, roasty aroma. Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and pillow-soft carbonation. The flavor, like the nose, is toasted and sweet with a nice mocha component. A touch of bitterness carries over into and through the mid-length finish.
