On tap at the Ithaca Brewery. I understand from the folks at the brewery they will no longer be brewing this beer and only have a small supply left at the Ithaca Brewery. Pours a dark brown with some reddish highlights when held to a window. Small off-white head. Light aroma of roasted malt and caramel. Flavor was also a bit on the light side with caramel and roasted malt noted along with a touch of bitterness from the hops. I found this beer to be a bit light bodied, especially for a porter.

Draft at MacGregor’s in Canandaigua. Soapy aroma with some sourness. Very light for a porter, water in appearance and flavor. Egad…the taste. Slight burnt caramel/toffee, but not in a good way. Unpleasant.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2008 [draft - MacGregor’s - Henrietta, NY] Clear brown pour that looks red in light. Slight tan head. Very mild aroma, mainly chocolate and some malts. The flavor is very mild as well. There was a slight sweetness in the beginning, but there was not much of an aftertaste. Definitely cleansed the palate.

Growler from the brewery. Pours a medium brown with red highlights, tan head. Aroma of chocolate, some lighter roasted malt. Flavor has a nice chocolaty prescence followed by some nice roastiness. Smooth medium body that finishes slightly dry. Very drinkable. I’ll enjoy the rest of my growler.
