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

On tap at Finnegan’s Wake during trivia night. Black pour with minimal fizzy eggshell head. Aroma is dark cocoa and acidic coffee. Flavor is cocoa heavy, mild red fruit presence, wet coffee ground earthiness. Creamy, moderately slick body. Solid and enjoyable.

12oz bottle via trade. Dark brown pour with a small, fading tan head. Good aroma, roasty with chocolate and nuts. Dry roasty flavor with charred notes and dark chocolate. Slight bitterness on the finish. Medium body and carbonation. Overall well-done, but not too remarkable.

Honestly, I was expecting more. Its a solid porter but nothing spectacular. Could be that I just got a bottle that had been stored too hot briefly. Somewhat bittersweet with a little coffee, little chocolate, but just left me feeling that the beer wasn’t any more exciting than the label. Just okay.

Pored at brewery, deep brown with white head. Aroma was coffee and chocolate as was taste, roasted malts in finish. Alcohol hidden but warming in finish.

Horse dark black, with a small head but nice lacing. Understated aroma, but delicious strong coffee taste with a hint of chocolate.

bartlebier (1724) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - APR 20, 2014
(US 2012 backlogged in abstinentia) Draft pint @Flying Fish Restaurant, Alexandria VA 11/09/2012. Pretty headstrong porter with some unusual tangential flavour that taste willed: smooth medium full body transporting dry fruit marmelade flavours on top of a milk chocolate and cocoa stream, punctuated by refreshing hop tingles. Quick exit. Tasty, unexpected dessert. To be revisited /bottled.

Pours near black with an espresso head. Aroma is massive chocolate brownie and coffee. Taste is semi sweet with some roast. Medium bodied with a dry finish. Pretty good stuff!

Surprisingly good. Very rich and robust roast malt aroma. Pungent and thick. Some light booze and caramel with a bite of bitter dark chocolate. Well balanced. Thick and rich on palate. Medium bitter finish. Bottle at Capital Lounge.
