Tap at Arundel Mills in Mar 2008: Pours a barely transparent dark mahogany with a thin light tan head. Aroma of sweet earthy dark caramel and chocolate malts with some smoky complexity. Body starts sweet and smooth with nice roasty smoky flavor befoer a more bittersweet, fairly full dark chocolatey finish. A very nice porter.

Draft @ Bel Air location in April 2008. Tastes and smells of coffee, chocolate, and bitter, roated malts. Nice balance of these elements, but not enough of them to make this one really outstanding. An enjoyable beer though.

Draft - Black pour with a tan head. A very nice aroma of chocolate and coffee. An excellent porter. Typically not my favorite style, this was excellent and full of sweet malt flavor.

Growler. This is some decent stuff. Roasty,chocolatey, malty, silky goodness. A fine porter that, thankfully, is one of their standard beers.

Color is dark with a cream head. Smelled like a stout. Taste was roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, and caramel. It was like guinness but stronger and with more flavor. A solid porter over all. I enjoyed it!

One of my favorite porters ever. This is a fairly full bodied beer with a wonderful dark color, along with a thin dark head. I usually have it from tap. Pronounced coffee taste throughout the pint, flavor becomes more rich and unique as it nears cellar/room temp.

Draft, dark dark pour, I had this in nitro (nitrogen injected) and the regular draft. I definitely think the nitro was better, and noticeably different. Dark chocolate/moca flavor, with a roasted after tasted. Pretty good porter.

Seems like they just stopped on this one...It is a great brew with okay flavor, but falls short of my porter expectations. Well, it falls within my expectations, but not of my GREAT porters.
