Of the Proof regulars this is probably my favorite. Itís got the complexity I look for from a porter but itís very well balanced.

mverity (263) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 12, 2014
Pours a rich, deep brown. Nice creamy tan head and pretty good lacing. The aroma isnít too bad: heavily roasted malt and charred oak. The flavor is a deep roasty sweetness. Some earthy woodiness. Silky-silty mouthfeel, nice full body, and low-medium carbonation.

Aurelius (4042) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Fruity, olivine aroma with very light creosote. INky. Tan head. Very smooth, lightly sweet, a bit fruity. Generally, just a clean and rich beer. Roasty finish. Good drinking. Dark cocoa very apparent in the finish. Proof, on Tap w/PorterPounder.

Pours a nice opposite brownish black on tap with fluffy tan head that laces nicely. Aroma of roasted malt, hints of soy, and English yeast esters. Taste follows, add some dark chocolate. Thick on the mouth for a porter, very nice.
