Pretty nice porter with an awesome chocolatey aroma and an awesome chocolatey, malty flavor. This brewpub really knows how to use specialty malts in their brews. Definately worth a try if you stop in.

Sampled on draft this beer poured a very dark brown color with a khaki head. The aroma was light roasty malts. The flavor was dry, roasty and bitter with a light smoky undertone and a long dry finish. Ok.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at the Pour House. A very dark brown color with a thick beige head. The aroma is chocolate, vanilla, butterscotch. Very roasty. The flavor is pretty sweet. A little bit of roasted bitterness. Coffee, a touch of cinnamon, and bitter burnt caramel. Decent body, but could use a little bit more carbonation.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2007 Nice black brown pour. Has a chocolate mousse head. Roasty aroma that is very attractive. A taste like somebody filtered this beer thru the old coal of a wood campfire. The taste and flavors are well controlled and enjoyable. Barely any carbonation.
