A "smooth" porter. While it does have complexity, it is also a very easy to drink and approachable beer.

This one was very good, sweetness surrounded by lots of earthy aromas. The name seems more like a beer that would try to blast your tastebuds off with one intense flavor but this one is very well balanced. It claims 7.3% alcohol and it doesn’t show up much at all. Will definitely try other Quaff On brews!

12 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown with a reddish hue and a small light tan head that leaves little lacing. Aroma of roasted hazelnut and almond, chocolate, and toasty malts. Taste is more on par with a nut brown ale with a nice nutty taste. Roasted nuts, caramel malt, lactose, cocoa, biscuits and white bread. Decent amount of bitter earthy hops cutting through as well. Smooth, long finish of caramel malts, cocoa and toasty nuttiness. Medium bodied, slick texture, lively carbonation. Definitely smooth and an incredibly easy drinker for a 7.2%er.

Don’t spread this around too loudly . . . but it tastes like soap. Awful stuff.

12oz bottle from Big Red in Indianapolis. Labeled 7.2%. Black color. Good finger of brown head. Solid ropes of lace. Nice chocolate aroma. Interesting mild spice flavors. Medium plus body. Smooth kind of soft crisp lighter carbonation, lightyl slick. Light chewy. Some cola flavors. Some vanilla. Solid porter. Better than expected (for some reason I was excepting this to be an American Strong Ale)

12 ounce bottle brought with Hayduke for DLD weekend. Black with the tiniest amount of red. A tan head leaves lacing as it falls. A soft roasted and cocoa aroma along with just a whiff of earth. I taste lactose first and then chocolate syrup. This might be tasty being poured over ice cream. A little hop note underneath. Citrus and bitterness from them. A bit of molasses. The hops grow towards the finish and become spicy. The beer also became more subdued at the finish. And the last sip is green pepper. Interesting stuff.

hayduke (3464) - Eureka, California, USA - APR 28, 2014
This was slipped to me by someone at Dark Lord Day 2014. I brought it home and shared with Strykzone. Pours jet back with a dingy tan head. Nose is chocolate roasted malts. Some touch of hops. Body is medium and on the thin side for a porter but the mouthfeel is smooth. Flavor is chocolate malts with a slight bitterness in the finish. Easy enough to drink and tasty. A fine beer.

Not bad. Strong and potent with a good flavor and alcohol content. Easy to drink as described. Nice malt backbone.

hotstuff (4269) - Indiana, USA - APR 20, 2014
Rated on 4-20-2014 (Bottle) This beer pours a medium sized tan head that mostly diminishes, opaque body, very fizzy, fast rising carbonation observed, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is malt, chocolate, roasted, and some earthiness. The taste is moderately bitter, malty, chocolate, roasted, and earthy. This beer’s mouthfeel is lively, moderately aggressive, watery, and thin. This beer is light bodied. Overall, an easy drinking porter because of the thin texture. This beer needs more rounded out flavor to make this a truly good porter.

thedm (4971) - Fort Wayne, USA - APR 20, 2014
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized light brown colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque dark black brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The nice aroma was roasted malt smoky and burnt malt. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering roasted malt aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of black malt roasted malt smoky toasted malt chocolate and brown malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

tap - Pours near black and has a fairly mild chocolate malt aroma. The flavor is quite sweet with chocolate and subdued roast character. It’s medium bodied at most, which makes it pretty light for the style. This is a fairly good beer and is smooth as marketed, but would be better with more body and more punch.

Bottle. Lightly smoky chocolate malt aroma. Dark chestnut with nice tan head. Lightly sweet smoked ham and light chocolate malt flavor. Pretty good - like the smokiness.
