Shallow Grave Porter is dark as night, perfect for a cool evening out in the woods. This a big, dark ale with a complex and rich chocolate and caramel malt character followed by a touch of warmth and light malt sweetness, leaving you ready for more after each shovelful. You will love this so much you won’t have time to dig a six-footer, so make it a Shallow Grave. We’re sure you’ll dig it.

5000 (6500) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 4, 2015
Bottle:   Nearly black, deep cola hued edges, frothty beige head, little lacing.   Mild roasted malt nose, a little lactose like sweetness.   Similar on the tongue.   Mild to moderate roastiness.   Very faint sweetness, at least not as much as the nose suggested.   Low hop bitterness, seems to be mostly like this roasted malt bitterness.   Body and mouthfeel are light to moderate.   Wished this one had a bit more body.   Soft roastiness on the finish.   Pretty simple, what I would say a good pedestrian example.

dmac (4849) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 27, 2015
Draft at TRT while I sopped. Poured a pitch black body with a small bubbly light beige head. Aroma starts off with burnt toast, dry dark chocolate, earth, newspaper and some nut shells. Medium to fuller body with softer to average carbonation and a lingering earthy aftertaste. Flavor is basically the same as the aroma with a touch of burnt coffee beans and a strong earthy nut shell finish.
