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

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.

BierMeHoos (540) - Maryland, USA - JUN 6, 2016
Where: Hard Times Cafe, MD. How: Pint tap pour. Appearance: pours dark, rich brown almost black with tan head that resolves quickly to fine lacing. Aroma: warm it up a little and roasted malts, coffee, molasses. Taste: Malt, sweet with coffee and caramel notes, end notes of hops balance the profile and nice clean finish. Palate: medium bodied with minimal carbonation. Overall: Nice roasty flavors, balanced with some good sweetness.

Poured up dark brown, near black, with a thick tan head that disappeared quickly leaving lots of lacing. Aroma is mild, light malts, coffee and chocolate. Taste is coffee, lightly sweet mild chocolate and very smooth. Slightly bitter, but smooth finish. Thick and rich. Nice porter.

Not enough toasty, roasty flavors for a porter IMO. Not a bad beer for sure but didn’t hold up to others in the flights I tried. Good body but very neutral flavor profile. More like a great lager than a porter.
