Holly Head Batman!! Seriousl, this beer has crazy head. You pour 1 oz in a pint, and the rest fills up with head! This beer actually taste like it was smoked. Not sure if I like that in a beer or not. Kinda taste like burnt coffee.

Bottle.Great porter. Soft and roasty, yet fairly assertive. You get hits of chocolate/caramel and tasty/roasty malts. Nice hops in the finish. The other thing i liked about it was there seemed to be no overkill with the hops, which was great. Nicely balanced, tasty.

Very nice beer. Dark and rich, looks and tastes like a Murphy’s with a hint of smokiness and a few other flavors. Not bitter at all.

22oz bomber - Deep garnet pour with small light tan head. Nice smokey aroma, roasted malt. Roasty, smokey flavor...nicely balanced. Thin mouthfeel, consistant with some porters. I really like the smokiness. Light hop presence to finish, smoke and caramel flavors linger. One of my favorites.

Couldn’t smell a whole lot in the aroma. Maybe it’s too cold. The taste is definitely "Smoked." Its creamy and smooth with a constantly changing after taste. I really like this beer.
