Tap: deep brown, opaque at the center with some translucency at the edges, topped off with a small, khaki colored collar. The aroma is quite roasty with some sweet cocoa shavings & a light coffee bean essence hidden somewhere in the back. Taste is smooth with mild notes of roasted malts, nuts, woodsiness, & a hint of sweet coffee & cocoa hitting the back of the tongue. Finishes with a touch of bitterness. Overall very drinkable, good stuff.

On tap at Red Rock. Pour is a pretty thin dark brown, with a minimal head. The aroma is really bland. It's got some coffee hints, a touch of coffee and a smidge of roast. The flavor is more heavy on the coffee and is extra sweet. It lingers around, and finishes a little dry ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very peppery flavor. Smells like a nice stout. Astringent taste. Bought a draft at ashleys

Pours an almost pitch black color with no head. Mostly roasted malt aroma with a little chocolate. Taste is decent. Again almost all roasted malt. Pretty thin mouthfeel. I expected better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

If I were to have chosen a single beer to try while visiting this might have been it. For a lighter sessionable porter it balances flavor and mildness well. Once again this proves that you don’t have to go big (or sour) to create something noteworthy.

Aroma / Appearance - Rusty brown fluid rests idly below an ivory head. Coffee, malt, baker’s chocolate, and a trace of smokiness feel like sitting down to breakfast in a 24 hour diner.

Flavor / Palate - Malt and coffee drive a rough mouthfeel that feels a bit gritty like a bowl of oatmeal. With solid depth the result is a beer that is not forgettable but also not over the top. A full growler and a couple of hours would be the perfect combination for a lazy evening around the house.

On tap. Pours very dark brown to black with a slight off-white head. Has a roasty coffee aroma. Flavor has lots of roasted coffee, anise, and an earthy, nuttiness. Little bit of dark fruit as well. Slightly on the thinner side, but I like this one.

strongpieman (1390) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - JUL 24, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2011 Draft. Aroma and appearance had my hopes high for this being a great porter. Palate was a little thin and the taste was too light, not really enough there. Drinkable but not one I would choose from this very good brewer. 11/26/11 Growler: Enjoyed the second time much more. Body was medium, nice taste - mild but flavorful. Very good porter.

Poured on tap into a pint glass. Standard dark brown porter color. It looked a bit thin and tastes thin. Also very standard coffee and chocolate taste. It did have a bit of bitter hop kick at the end. Kind of plain but very drinkable.
