Tap at Blind Tiger: Very dirty, muddy, yeasty pour with a tan film of head. Milky, chocolaty aroma with a nutty note. Has a creamy body with a nice dark crystal malt flavor. Some milk sugar notes, lots of toasted notes, mild husk and a cocoa touch. Nicely hopped back with a peppery note. A nice milky porter.

Sample at the brewpub. Pours dark brown with a medium compact light beige head that diminishes slowly to a film. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of chocolate, malt and hops. Medium body with flavors of biscuity malt, hops, caramel and chocolate. The finish is malty with a roasty aftertaste. Above average overall.

Very dark brown beer. Crisp palate. Fresh minerally porter. A little sour dark malt but it’s non too heavy. Finishes crisp with more tangy sour dark malt. Light refreshing porter.
