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

One of the best Porters I have had - tried it at the Capital Ale House in Richmond, VA - also highly recommend going there

One of my all time favorites. If you like porters this is a must to put on your íto tryí list.

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.

I have this on tap at the brewery every week. Itís hard to believe that no adjuncts are used in crafting this full-bodied, smooth, coffee forward Porter. Delicious and a must-have in the Northern Virginia/DC area.

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.

Pours black with a short light head. Cocoa and coffee aromas. Taste is bitter but there is a subtle sweetness that comes through after that initial bitterness. Finishes dry with a coffeeish aftertaste.

This is a dark and super thick. This has lots of roasted and smokey notes to it that make it a great drink. Itís heavy and not something for a hot day.

BREWMUSKCLES (2234) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 21, 2012
smooth, somewhat creamy and substantial mouthfeel that is exactly what makes a great porter. sense of caramel and dark cocoa with a malt and hop infusion evenly and exactly layered. just a bit of vanilla rum and that broth like hint that says beer or rather porter. this is my idea of a great porter.

A really good porter! It doesnít have the overly chocolate/caramel/sweetness that oftens ruins other porters. Great stuff.

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