COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed for our friends at the 9 Pound Hammer here in Georgetown, this is an exceptionally flavorful medium bodied porter. We use tons of Chocolate, Munich, and Roasted Malt, then blend it with Centennial and Northern Brewer hops to create what we like to call Roasted Chocolaty Goodness. Mmm.. porter. Buy it by the pint at the Nine Pound Hammer or come on in to our retail shop for growlers to go!

Draft pour pint at Rooneys, as part of my "how the hell have I not rated this" series. I remember having this beer a bunch in my freshman year of beer drinking. Enjoyed the hell out of it. Not much has changed. Jet black pour with a lasting tan head. This beer is a classic. Bold chocolate. Smooth finish. Cant believe this beer goes for aingle digit growler fills on price. Steal. Excellent.

Smells a little dark but not really strong. Average I’d say. Black as the night, froth like a Guinness. Surprisingly fresh taste for a dark beer. After the first swallow, it develops a strong but never overwhelming, full and enjoyably bitter experience. Hm, also with a roast and malt component. I like it! Aftertaste is smooth, very decent. Does not hang unpleasantly in your throat. Overall, very good. One of the best over the last weeks.

Prufrockstar (1778) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Schooner at College Inn after mis-timing my bus transfer. Oh well, carpe diem (noctum? Wish I knew Latin). Clear cola color, some head, irregular lacing. Some sweetness, but much more on the nutty, roasty side of the spectrum. Robust, with medium body and slick texture. Solid brew.

Dark brown with a pale head. Aroma is chocolate, dark fruits, hint of vanilla. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel, bitter chocolate and roast on the palate. Taste is chocolate, roasted grain, vanilla.

On tap at Georgetown, pours near-black with a medium tan head. Aroma is well-balanced, with roast and dry cocoa. Flavour is fairly robust, with with dry cocoa and roasted malt. Good balance that is highly drinkable. Solid porter.

Draft, some head, great lace. Aroma coffee, roasted barley, faint dark fruit. Taste is roasted barley, coffee and dark chocolate, vanilla, dark fruit, faint dark fruit. Palate is good, but not heavy, carbonation subdued. Overall this is a really good Porter.

Zeswaft (1573) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Tap. Typical black appearance. Aroma of faint chocolate and roasted malts but also a generic beer aroma. Flavor is the same. Mocha and sort of tame, bordering not too flavorful.
