TheJester (2199) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Stout brown, not much head. Smells a little roasty. Taste is sweet, roasty, and nutty. Body is excellent. Oatmeal. Great beer.

Dark and delicious. Unlike other Indie offerings, this brew has a smooth texture with a hint of coffee, chocolate, and hops.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5602) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2015 Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a black color with an enormous foamy tan head that faded quickly but left good lacing. The aroma was coffee, a bit roasty and woody. The flavor was bitter and roasty with coffee, a hint of vanilla and wood. Long finish. Medium body. Meh.

Black beer with brown head. Coffee is the aroma and flavor, medium bodied, aftertaste builds with roasted flavours. Could be a bit richer, fairly nice.

Solid porter! Good, rich malts, nice cocoa notes, with some nuttiness, and subtle hops. Great mouthfeel and carb. Finish is medium bitter with loads of nutty and chocolatey goodness.

On tap at the brewery. Pours near black with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, some coffee and chocolate notes, some dough, light bitterness, and hints of sweetness. Flavor the same with a nice dark malt note and a dry, roasty finish. Average texture. A really good porter.
