Served on tap from the brew pub. The appearance is a medium brown black. The flavors and aromas are medium roasted malts, smoked sausage. The mouth is a touch creamy and medium bodied. An average porter.

Nice malt profile. Sweetness was balanced with a darker roasted flavor. Just a little bit of alcohol in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
from a 4 week old growler. Based on the reviews here and the style in general, I think my growler got pretty oxidized over thsoe 4 weeks, despite the lively carbonation, creamy head, and fizzy hiss upon opening the growler. Smokey, tobacco, burnt rubber, and coffee. Good, but very weird. I will try it fresh tomorrow to see what the real thing is like.
[RERATE] Much better than the oxidized growler. Simple but pleasant with nice smoke, coffee, and roasty character.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2013 draft poured dark brown with off white head that held throughout. aroma of roasted malts and some coffee and sweet maybe caramel. the flavor was deep yet medium bodied. lots of roasted malts and some sweet in there. still get some chocolate and something else I couldn’t put my finger on...overall decent.

Draft - typical porter appearance. Brown with a small tan head - maybe due to the pour. Very chocolatey aroma and flavor. This is the porter that I was trying to make with my last homebrew!
