GT2 (8283) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Tap at DuClaw Arundel Mills. Pours a deep, clear ruby like Guinness. Thicker beige foam. Thick beige lacing. Nose is muted cinnamon and spices. Baked cherry. Taste is small vanilla, weak chocolate, some bitter iced coffee. Palate is thinner but moderately oily. Not watery or soapy. No lemon tea character. Very drinkable and moderately rich with spiced Mexican chocolate. Liked this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Huhzubendah (2424) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 22, 2012
On nitro-tap at DuClaw. A: This beer appears a near black shade with a creamy, white one inch head. S: The aromas are quite subtle, with some roasted malt and chocolate. T: The beer is pretty tasty, but again, the flavors are a bit subdued. I would prefer more roasted malt flavors and a creamier, denser beer. The nitro-tap creates a pretty velvety smooth feel, but I wish this beer had a fuller body. M: The feel has a slightly watery feel, but makes up for it with a silky smoothness, mostly due to the nitro-tap, I’m assuming. D: Overall, a pretty good beer. It wasn’t amazing or special, but I’ll probably order it again at some point in the future.

This poured a medium brown color with a beige head. Aroma was of medium roast, light chocolate, and some grassy hops. Flavor was much the same, very well balanced and tasy porter, but waaay to light and watery for the style.

I was very excited to taste this beer but ended up being very disappointed. I don’t know if I got a bad batch but when it hit my tounge it tasted good for a split second then turned weak and watery.

Draught at BWIm. Pours a dark brown with tan head. Aroma of light coffee, and roast malt. Tadte is the same, with mild bitterness. Mouthfeel is creamy but thin. Overall, not bad for a session porter.
