Great Porter. Really well balanced, hugely drinkable and the roasty finish is so well integrated in to the package it comes off as one well rounded product in the mouth. Nice heavy, though well weighted body too. This is what good beer is all about - no need for huge ABVs and off kilter ingredients. Just good, honest beer values.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice dark roast malt and coffee nose, but a bit flat. Coffee brown color. Flavor also seems flat and mostly light roast coffee. Good but not great. Doesn’t hit all the right porter spots for me. Maybe fatigued palate after tasters of their IPAs at Hops and Pie’s tap takover? Will need to try again if I get a chance.

On tap at Hops and Pie poured a clear dark reddish brown with a small lasting tan head. Aromas of milk chocolate, dark fruit, vanilla and light earthiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of dark chocolate, coffee, roastiness and light vanilla with a smooth dry lingering roasty finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ Hops and Pies Denver during FiftyFifty tap takeover. Pours a deep brown appearance with a cream/tan head. Aromas of roast, chocolate, mild coffee, and a bit of piney hops. Pretty easy drinking, roasty chocolate malty flavor with a touch of anise and vanilla. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not a proper rating, but leaving a note on how punctuated thisporter is from fresh flavor hops (Columbus?) There’s a bitter hop finish a alcohol warmth that sort of cuts the sweet chocolate notes leaving you to want more.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at Falling Rock and again at GABF 2012. Pours a medium porter brown with a tan head. Nose is roasted malts, some cocoa, dark chocolate, and some earthy bitterness. Flavor is similar with roasted malts up front, some dark chocolate, cocoa, and mild hops. Light to medium in body and a nice porter overall.

Sample at GABF 10/13/2012, thanks to Bluemeow76 for assistance with note-taking. The beer pours inky black with a medium thin tan head and patchy lacing. Aroma of malt, chocolate and coffee. Medium body with a roasted malt and coffee character along with notes of sweet chocolate and fruity hops. The finish is roasty with an espresso aftertaste. Above average overall.
