A classic dry porter with coffee, toffee and roasty notes in both the aroma and flavor. Black in color with a refreshingly dry finish. Reminiscent of the porters of old before the days of stouts.

Tap at taproom. Dark brown color, small brownish head, lace. Light coffee and veggies in the nose. Light-bodied. Some chocolate, toasted malts but overall a bit sweetish. Way too "easy".

BJCP Category 20A: American Porter

AROMA: Medium strong dark malt. Slight coffee and/or chocolate scent. Noticeable sweet for a "dry" porter. Little to no hops. 8/12

APPEARANCE: Nearly opaque muddy brown. Small brown soapy head mostly dissipates. No lacing. 1/3

FLAVOR: Surprisingly mild compared to the nose. Some borderline sourness/tang up front. Sharp burnt toast or old coffee on the finish. Minor dry bitterness. No sweetness whatsoever. Some wet cardboard presence (oxidized). 8/20

MOUTHFEEL: Light/medium body; low carbonation. Slick texture. No alcohol warmth. Smooth but boring. 2/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: All signs point to old bottle, but no freshness date to verify. Probably decent fresh. 5/10

At Disney, I’m assuming from a bottle poured in the back out of my line of vision as we circled The Land at Epcot. Poured black with dark brown at edges, slight head. Pleasant aroma of coffee, roasted malts. Flavor matched, with a light note of chocolate in the back as well. Medium bodied, dry, flavorful. Much like an Irish dry stout. Maybe it was because it was at the tail end of a line of totally uninspired brews, but this seemed really nice.

carried over from untapped to try and organize my beers for syncronicity’s sake.

From 12oz bottle (thanks,Rob) Pours dark black with just a touch of head. Rich, malty aroma. Taste is not as rich, and mouthfeel is a bit thin. (Probably does not help that I had an Evil Twin Lil'B a shirt while ago) Darker flavors of coffee come through as the beer is drunk. (Drinken? Drunk?) Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
