Tap at Papago. Dark maroon color, nice lacing. Decent coffee and chocolate. More like an English stout than a porter, but very tasty.

Black color. Dusty aroma, meat, roasted malt. Medium body strength, roasted malt flavor, some ashes, light Tequila. The final is dry bad coffee. Quite weird.

Tmoney99 (12732) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 13, 2012
Draft. Pours black color with a moderate frothy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Heavy toasted dark chocolate malt, earthy and small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy dark chocolate bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This beer exceeded my expectations.

Growler pour from dchmela...damn find porter!! Black pour. Aroma is sweet and strong with molasses, coffee, chocolate. Smells like an imperial stout. Damn if it doesnt taste like one too. Chocolate, molasses and dark dried fruit. This is a super porter. I feel very fortunate to have tried this one. Goddamn the Orlando crew rocks ass.
