COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our porter is brewed in the traditional English style. It has a deep brown color and a creamy tan head. The mouth feel is highlighted with soft notes of chocolate and slight undertones of roasted coffee. Hop bitterness is nicely balanced with the malt and hop aroma being very low, typical of the English style.

Draft. Deep brown body. Fizzy, beige head, rapidly diminishing. Aroma of roasted malts, milk chocolate, coffee and cream. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation. A very sweet porter that could use a little more hop balance. Raw grain aftertaste with some metallic notes.

On Tap at the Slippery Noodle (Indiana’s First Bar!) Pours a dense black with slight head that dissipates. Aroma is a nice chocolate and toffee. Taste is more of the same. A nice porter!

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 20, 2012
On tap at the brewery, Indy. Dark brown pour but not especially impressive in terms of body and appearance, looking almost like a somewhat hefty brown. Nose of modest roasted malts and a dollop of chocolate, not much in the way of bitterness or complexity. Solid drinking, a bit overly carbonated, and imbalanced towards the sweet end of the spectrum.

This draft brew from a beer festival poured a head of fine to medium sized tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation semi-opaque brown colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was malty and coffee. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of mild coffee porter. An OK brew just nothing special.

The lack of IBU’s put the fear in me, but this is a surprisingly well-balanced beer. I did the full flight and this was probably my favorite of the bunch. Sorry for the lack of details. Tasting was done yesterday, and I was not taking notes.

Aroma: Coffee, slightly smokey roasted malts, chocolate. No dominant flavors from the yeast. Appearance: Stable, long-lived fine tan head, deep brown color and low turbidity Taste: Very well balanced sweetness with smooth but substantial hopping. Moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Palate: Smooth, sweet and flavorful with a drying hops finish, medium bodied and well carbonated. Overall: A very respectable porter to be enjoyed with a hearty meal and a warm atmosphere.

Poured a wonderful deep, shiny brown, with some very excellent tan head and some nice lacing. Deep dark malt scent with roasted grains and a coffee note. Slight chocolate tones, and a nice earthy finish.
