Pours a thick brown with little tan head that dissipates on draft, with no lacing. Aroma is heavy on roasted coffee with a hint of sweet. Taste is full on coffee, with bitter, dry finish.

Bottle pour into snifffffter. Nose is dry cocoa and some light coffee/roasted notes. Some bready hints too. Pour is black with an off-white head. Flavor is mostly light chocolate and some roasted notes as well. Weak flavors on the finish of the beer but overall a nice offering.

It’s nice to find a local brew - and a bottled one at that. For a porter the nose was light - but hints of burnt leaves and coffee were present. THe mouth feel was thin and bitter, again with hints of dark chocolate for a clean finish. The flavors were short-lived but all in all this beer wasn’t that bad. Shared by OmegaX - thanks mayn.

Bottle from Liz. Pours brown/black with a creamy tan head. Aroma is chocolate with a little coffee and maybe a touch of anise. Med + body. Flavor is very dark chocolate with some gritty near-burnt malt and with a little coffee coming along. Anise? Maybe not. Definitely dry, but not particularly bitter. More like astringent from the burnt malt.

A very nice surprise given where we were staying in orlando was not exactly a beer Mecca at any stretch of the imagination. Nice black color, almost black ipa-ish in it’s aroma, and although not extremely hoppy like a bipa, still very delicious
