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

12 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Virginia Beach, VA. Dark brown cola-like pour with a frothy khaki head. The rich chocolate aroma can easily be detected from several feet away. Really nice flavor of dark, yet creamy, chocolate, light espresso, and faint floral hops. The finish is rich but not too bitter. This is a damn good porter!

12 oz bottle into a tulip. Thanks Max! Pours a deep black with a finger of khaki foam that fades into thin edging. Nose is rather smokey with notes of chocolate, coffee, and caramel. Taste is initially smoked malts but it then transitions into sweet chocolate and bitter coffee beans. Smooth and robust. Medium bodied and does a great job hiding the abv. A really solid no-frills porter.

Kinz (3737) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Growler fill from Aw Shucks. Poured a black brown, slight head. Aroma is coffee and chocolate. Full mouthfeel, fairly big, a bit more roast than expected, bordering on stout territory. Some faint fruitiness on the finish, undefined, but complementary of the malt show. Enjoyable brew, felt like I hadn’t had a beer like this in a long time. Liked this more than the score would indicate I think.

This was a pleasant, quietly powerful porter. Rich and chocolatey with ample coffee notes.

A really good porter! It doesn’t have the overly chocolate/caramel/sweetness that oftens ruins other porters. Great stuff.
