THis is a drinkable porter. I found it to have good balanced flavors, but it is a bit thin and the after taste is lacking. I could drink this, but I probably will not buy it again.

12 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a 1/2" tan head. Minimal lace. Subtle chocolate and coffee aroma. Smooth, soft palate with little carbonation. Goes down like silk. Flavor is chocolate with roasted malt with a hint of coffee. Maybe a little hop in the finish. Nice, solid porter.

Sampled at High Street Grill Winter Beer Fest. Very nice porter to say the least. Pours black with a tan head. Full bodied with a nicely roasted malt, coffee flavor. Finishes very refreshing for the style. A pub I got to get to soon.

On tap at Rattle n Hum. Pretty tart for a porter, without much smoke or coffee flavor. Could this have been a little bit off? It was still a good pint.

On-tap at the Publick House 8-07. Pours pitch black. Tan head. Malty nose with coffee tones. Flavor is heavy on coffee. Thick malts. Feel has a good carbonation and a nice thick liquid feel. Very drinkable. A nice hearty and robust brew. Well worth a try and pretty damn good as well.
