Bottle. Pours opaque brown black, off white head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, vanilla, caramel, malt, leather, tobacco. Pretty complex and lovely scent; can they make this into a perfume? Flavor is meaty, smoky, slightly oily, well balanced. A damn good, full bodied porter.

Skeegle (566) - Maryland, USA - MAR 10, 2010
Excellent porter that tastes remarkably similar to DFH Chicory Stout. Dark and roasted, this has a smooth yet complex roast complex of chicory, burnt coffee, dry chocolate malt. Very good beer.

guzzler67 (1490) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 1, 2010
Requisite dark appearance with a medium size mocha colored head and good lacing. Sweet, chocolatey aroma in front of some roasted malts. A hint of vanilla bean along with woody, earthy flavors compliment the bittersweet chocolate taste. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel with a lingering finish. Bottle from the Wine Source in Baltimore.

20100220 12oz bottle from State Line. Typical dark brown with lasting, medium sized, tan head. Aroma is a bit chary, with decent prune, fudge, and tobacco overtones. Medium bodied with somewhat aggressive carbonation, little sweetness, lingering ashy tobacco and charcoal notes. Flavor is a bit smoky, which is a nice surprise. Flavor absolutely improves with temp. Nicely done, basic, clean porter with pleasant smokiness. Canít complain about that.

sloth (2452) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - FEB 11, 2010
Small tan head with good retention and fair lace. Almost black appearence cept for some ruby edging. Nose of roast, faint smoke and licorice. Body is almost medium, soft carbonation, light oilyness. Light roast and chocolate flavors backed by a pleasent smokiness that shows itself more as the brew warms up. Fairly dry, smokey finish. Smoke does it for this brew. Bottle procured @statelinliquors.

Evolutionís bottled beers have finally made their way to Baltimore. Unfortunately, there is not any bottling code/bottled on date. I am really psyched to have another local brewer to turn to. This is a nice textbook example of dryish and drinkable Porter that is very silky with a touch of spicy hops. The finish is long and full of chocolate and coffee.

GMCC2181 (1499) - Newark, Delaware, USA - JAN 13, 2010
Bottle picked up at stateline... Poured into a pint glass, decent mocha colored head. Slight roasted malts aroma and maybe some chocolate. Taste is some light chocolate, nice roasted malts and some coffee notes. Light in texture, easy to drink. Overall, decent local porter to sip on.

eaglefan538 (2857) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JAN 2, 2010
From bottle. The pour was brown colored with a thin to weak off-white colored head, mild lacing. The aroma was chocolate malts, barley, molasses, and faint roast. The flavor followed, a pretty good melding of porter-ish flavors, the coffee detectable here but not so much in the flavor. Moderate to slightly light mouthfeel for the range of porters. Decent brew.

Sampled on tap at Churchkey DC. Pours a translucent black with a thin, slightly off white head. Aroma is mostly toasted malts, nuts, slightly sweet. Flavor is sweet and malty, a little earthy. Finish is a little watery and a little sweet. Standard porter.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 17, 2009
Draught sample at the tasting room. Pours dark brown with a light brown head. Smells of roasted malt, some spicy hints, earthy. Tastes lightly bitter and chocolatey with a nice roasty element.
