On tap at Dust Bowl -
This was THE best beer out of the tap without a doubt. First, just a stunning beer to look at with a deep black body with a frothy light tan head. Aroma abounds with chocolate, light molasses, a touch of smoke, and dark fruits. The flavors meld really, really well together and with the combination of the great flavors and a perfect mouthfeel...this is really one fantastic beer. Really reminded me of the Duck-Rabbit Baltic Porter in many ways.

"Well done brew...aroma and flavor of dark chocolate, some cherry-like fruitiness and good old fashioned roasted malt. Probably their most enjoyable brew, and they were almost all up to par."
