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 doesnít show up much at all. Will definitely try other Quaff On brews!

APPEARANCE- looks super black at first, but actually dark brown. Head is creamy and dark in color.
NOSE- a bit of carmely sweetness, but overall not much to it.
FLAVOR- clean drinking porter with smooth flavor. As it warms up, the full body develops and the nuttiness and roastiness of the darker malt starts to come through.

12 oz bottle, thanks Kelly. Aroma is garbagey, coffee, bread, smoke, raisin. Pours black with red highlights and a collapsing tan head. Taste is better than the aroma with a nice roastiness, but thereís still a hint of garbage.

Tap at a bar somewhere in Indianapolis. Smooth and not too strong, a very good porter that stands out from the herd.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours not a deep red (as the bottle states), but rather a deep dark brown to black with a fair cappuccino head that hangs around and leaves a wall of soapy, spotty lace. Nose involves chocolate, toast, some wood-smoke, earth, cream. I fridged this thinking it was an imperial red, so Iím sure more stuff will come out as it warms. Pretty sweet flavor, fair bitterness to balance. Medium to full bodied, fair carb action, some oil and slipperiness, a touch of chalk, with a lengthy roasty cocoa and toasted malt finish. This isnít bad at all as a robust porter, and probably the best of the three brews I have tried. Decent body on it, good malt contributions, digging the smoke note wherever that comes from. Would go with a pile of meat or a dessert. Still confused about the labeling, which seems to describe the "other" Busted Knuckle, the red ale, with itís "deep red color reminiscent of fresh blood on the newly busted knuckle of a working man or womanís hand." So, yeah, theyíre a small brewery newer to bottling and have two beers with the same name and probably just left the label alone so they didnít have to wait 6 months on new label approval. But be warned, your red ale may be a porter! The good news is, it will be a pretty good porter.
