Bottle pours very dark brown with thick beige head. Aroma caramel malts/roasts. Taste caramel, slight chocolate, roast. Palate on the thin side. Finish prolonged mild roast. Alcohol not apparent.
Not a bad porter, kind of average.

Originally reviewed: 3/30/11. 12oz bottle, poured into a pint glass. Pours a dark black with light garnet on the edges. Small tan head. No lace. The nose is pretty basic: faint coffee aromas, roasted malts, mild leafy hops on the finish.
Good moderate body. Carbonation level melds with a creamy feel to liven it up a bit. This beer starts out with a bounty of roasted goodness. Some coffee, mild nuttiness, dark bitter chocolate. But on the finish there’s a really flavorful hop presence that caused me to double-take. Wasn’t expecting that, but it is much appreciated. This wouldn’t be confused with a Black IPA, but it’s close. Nice juicy hops that jive well with the roasted aspect. I dig this. I’d love the chance to try it again.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a tan head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is roasted malt and chocolate. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet raisin and a nice lingering dry finish. A decent porter from Santa Fe.

Flavor is dark bread, slight sweet coffee, and a little bit of sour cream. Aroma is light toast and roasted malt. Smooth, light, unassuming.

When cold this beer is fairly one dimensional - nose is all malt, with a bit of roast and chocolate in the flavor. It’s a deep clear brown with off-white head that foams up then leaves sticky lacing behind. Palate is very nice - medium bodied and creamy. Refreshing and well crafted porter. Once it warms up it gets substantially better - chocolate, smoke, roast, and a bit of nuttiness all show up in the nose and taste.
