COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A dark, full bodied beer, with overtones of coffee and roasted barley, that is slightly sweet, with just enough hops to balance out the full malt flavor.

Roasty. Nutty. Where’s the porter? Tastes like an overbearing brown ale. Oh well, not offensive in any way.

Deep reddish black with no real head to speak of. Bittersweet chocolate aroma with a hint of caramel. Dark roasted malt flavor with a nutty coffee undertone. Medium bodied with a creamy, bitter finish. A pretty satisfying porter.

On tap at the brewpub, pours black with a sweet chocolate and malty nose. Taste is bitter chocolate, porter-esque, a bit watery. Ok beer, maybe the best they had this weekend, but nothing to go out of your way for.

Pours a clear, very dark brownish red with a thin beige head. Aroma is sweet caramel, chocolate, coffee, grainy malt, buttery roasted nuts and an odd toasty wheat bread note. Flavor is sweet, light roast coffee, chocolate, roasted nuts and a roast note that waits till the finish to show up along with some light metallic notes. Palate is light bodied, slightly creamy on entry turning pretty dry fairly quickly. Not bad, pretty tame for a porter though.

This was really not terribly exciting. We really need to try better on this. Serving: Tap

Draft. Ever so slight coffee notes coming from this. Dark brown with slight tan head. Bitter ending. Not really a good porter.

Tap. I enjoyed this beer. It had a nice rich color and nice matly taste with lots of coffee/chocolate notes to it in the aftertaste. My favorite beer of what they had on tap during my visit.

Tastes pretty good, everything you would want in a Porter like drink-ability, re-freshness, and other hyphenated descriptions.

12oz bottle. Opaque black color with a frothy beige head that fades down to a thin oily layer after a few minutes. Roasty aroma. This is a great Porter. Some vanilla tones, big bold chocolate, but all beneath a smooth, fluffy malt body. Wow, really nails the style. Porter freaks should seek this one out. Bold, almost approaching Stout.
