Pleasant enough, but the flavour is a little weak. It’s very dark, perhaps black, with a thin head. Quite fizzy too.

A very dry porter. Chocolate flavor and aroma with a fairly light body. Roasted malt give a slight burnt finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Black in color with a creamy khaki head. Coffee, roast, and dark chocolate open things up on the nose. A bit of earthy hops, licorice, and maybe some cocoa powder. The flavor is almost chalky and astringent. Lots of roasted malt, some dark chocolate, and a coffee ground note, too. A hint of dark fruit as the beer warms.

probably one of best and most consitant offerings from Lengthwise. Slight acidity from roast malts but not a detriment, actually blends nice with sub flavors of coffee and caramels... Not sweet, again slightly on the raosty side and maybe moving from a porter to a stout.. Give it a Robust porter for style, My personal guess is the name may help in marketing a dark beer with body to a location where it is rarely less than 95F in the Summer months.

On tap the brewpub. Dark amber-brown, decent dense head. Aroma-roasted malt, hint of chocolate, coffee. Taste-earthy, creamy, roasty, cocoa and coffee notes. Somewhat low carbonation. Very creamy, smooth mouthfeel.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ the brewpub. Clear deep dark ruby with a one finger cramy beige head, good retention--as a nitro should have. Loads of unsweetened chocolate up front with some moderate roasted malts. Flavor is much the same with hints of caramel and smoke, though the finish did turn a little burnt and ashy. Bitterness peaked around a 3 in the dry finish. Light prickly carbonation with a medium body. Not too bad.

On nitro tap. Poured a black color with a creamy brown head. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Flavor was strong with coffee. Body was too light, but other than that this was a great beer.

Average porter here. Nothing really different about it except perhaps it was mostly coffee dominant with little else going for it in terms of complexity. Dark brown in color with light brown highlights. Slightly lactic in flavor, creamy with a dry finish. Coffee dominates the taste, just like it did in the nose. Easy drinking.
