bubbleflubber (2159) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 11, 2011
On draught at the Charlotte brewery. Pours an oily mahogany, with a thin ring of suds that leaves light sudsy lacing. A roasted nose ensues. Coffee and roasted grains dominate, with a light cherry accent hitting mid-palate, and finishing with a roasted bitter coffee bean back. The body is nice and round, but light on the palate. The accompanying substantial mouthfeel makes this pour the fave of the flight.

Smooth roasty porter with a nice chocolate finish. Lighter on the palate with a soft carbonation that left the beer feeling very smooth.

Kevin (2192) - New Mexico, USA - AUG 17, 2006
tap at the s. denver location. poured a nice black that was far from pitch with a cool gray/white head. slight gray head. smelled of sugar and chocolate. taste was dry cocoa powder, rich chocolate, a bit of caramel. no noticeab;e bitter side, but was not unbalanced. i assume the hops were just so light as to do their job and stay the hell out of the way. a good beer i will drink again.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 2, 2006
Sampled cask conditioned at R.B. Milwaukee. Dark coffee color, thin bubbly tan head. Overall, a roasty grapefruit hop porter. Tart coffee and sweet cologne aroma. I almost thing the GF hops in taste come from Milwaukee’s "cask conditioning", as the cask red had the same taste. To me, very light for a porter, but a decent beer overall.

KOP location. Dark brown pour with sizable tan head. Heavy chocoff and malt aroma, with the same taste. Good complexity and big chocoff in the finish.
