Cask version at NotLA. Nice creamy chocolate aroma with a really nice hop finish. Almost fully opaque with some faint reds. Beautiful lace. Really nice subtle hop finish. Fairly sweet. Good balance. If this is an example of what new brewer, Tim Marshall, can do, it portends well for Rock Bottom Yorktown.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2007 Dry hopped cask sample, 11 Jan., ’07. Come in when Sean is tending bar, start talking beer, and maybe he’ll hook you up to this. Cask pour into a room temp glass greatly enhances the presentation. A smooth tan head over the same black body. Texture is also smooth, with light cask carbonation. Dry-hopped, perhaps, but no overly so, just a nice increased sense of bitterness and well-being. current rating is for the cask version.

Mug Club Draft, 3 Jan., ’07. Served in a chilled mug, a bit of a detraction. Otherwise, a good looking porter: brown to black under a thick, lacy tan head. This should have been on cask, too. Still a nice roasty malt comes in through the bubbles. Smell includes a bit of coffee roast. Some hoppiness that may actually go a bit over style, but we’re all hopheads here. Cold does give it a clean finish, but I have to ding it for its presentation. Original rating: 6-4-5-2-13=3.0

I’m not certain what makes this robust, but it’s not a bad drink, if a bit thin. The body’s an extremely dark opaque brown topped with a light tan head that laces in sheets. Milk chocolate comes to the forefront in the nose followed by some roasted malt that intensifies as the drink warms. (They serve the beers too cold here.) The flavor’s the same as the aroma with a lightly burn malt bitterness in the finish. Okay.
