The Man In Black Porter is a dark rich beer. It is darker than our Southbound Nut Brown Ale but not as opaque as our Steamboat Stout. Our Porter has a captivating deep mahogany color and is complimented by a silky tan head. It has a rich, full-bodied and robust flavor. A combination of black patent and chocolate malts provide the steam engine black color for our full-bodied porter. We add special roasted malt and Hallertauer hops to give this beer a dry, slightly roasted finish.

Dark brown with a light brown head on top. Very light aromas of roast barley and not much else. Flavor of dark roast coffee that gives this beer a light bitter finish. Thinner that it looks. The server told me it was "last month’s seasonal". Now I know why.

On draught at the brewpub. Faint aroma, only some very light roastiness and cocoa malt sweetness, an even lighter molasses character seems to appear after a while as well. Opaque jet black color with a sparse, slight, fine head. Flavor is thankfully a little more interesting, sweet and seeing some milky caramel up front, soon infused with cocoa and faint lactose-like sugars, then fading into a blend of tangy coffee and mild hop bitterness. Some very faint dark fruitiness, perhaps some hints of prune alongside much stronger, lingering notes of cola. Smooth, lightly prickly mouthfeel, nearly watery palate with a medium body. Flavor is actually mildly interesting, and now I can say I’ve had a beer named after Johnny Cash.

At the brewpub. Dark-brown/blackish color. Light brown head, maybe a centimeter. Sweeter than most porters, as it had more of a chocolatey flavor than coffee. Smooth palate and easy to drink.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a mahogany black color. This is a good porter. Very sweet- much sweeter than you expect from this style. Almost milky. I think it has an appreciable alcohol content. Very chocholate tasting. Slight coffee taste. Palate is smooth. Some lacing from the ivory colored head. I would say that this is the best this brewpub had to offer.
