Our robust Porter shows bittersweet flavors of coffee and dark chocolate. It has very complex malt character enhanced by yeast fruitiness.

Bottle. Thanks to Chris H. Pleasant chocolate ans sugary aroma. Dark brown, some lace. Flavors are same as above, both quite mild. Medium-thin body. Not bad, but quite light all around.

Aroma is roasted malts and coffee. Taste is of grain, coffee, and yeast. Medium bodied with approprate carbonation. Overall, a dry porter but enjoyable.

Dark brown with a tan head. Roast malt aroma, cocoa powder, coffee. Rich roasty flavor, roast malt bitterness. Iíd like a little less bitterness in this.

strongpieman (1574) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Bottle. Heavy rich porter. Aroma is a strong coffee softened by chocolate. Dark brown, thick, some carbonation. A very good porter, on the heavier side for the style.

Poured into a snifter. 3.5 A: Black color. One finger of frothy tan head. Retention is below average, but a short ring of lacing is left nonetheless. 4.5 S: Wow is this powerful. Unyieldingly grainy with equally potent chocolate. Toasty after that. Mild roastiness. Coffee with cream. I love the nose on this. Itís both bold and well integrated. 4.5 T: Taste is just as impressive. Again a HUGE graininess. This is certainly the grainiest porter Iíve ever had and I love it. Lots of chocolate with coffee with cream underneath. Again just a mild roastiness, but it works so well. Sweet, hearty neutral maltiness. Just so good. Love this. 5.0 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Both creamy and silky smooth. Awesome here. 5.0 D: This is one of those beers that you need to buy lots of random beers to find a hidden gem. This is a hidden gem. I could drink this all damn night. I think SteveFinny sent me this, which means Iím even more indebted to him than I already am. This is a killer beer. Get it, drink it, love it.

On draft at Evening Star Cafe in Alexandria, VA. The beer appears opaque and nearly black in color. The light tan colored head is about a finger thick and fades to a thin, wispy layer after a few moments, leaving a fair amount of lacing behind it. The aroma brings roasted malt and light coffee notes, as well as melted chocolate. I found the flavor very enjoyable, with everything I detected in the aroma coming together nicely in the flavor profile. The feel was a bit on the thin side for a dark beer weighing in at 7.5%, but overall, I thought this was a good offering from a solid new local brewery. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 04-01-2011
