On tap at brewery, was told this was a test batch with an Irish yeast instead of the English they normally use. I did not care for it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rhialistic (156) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 23, 2012
On tap @ Strange. Deep brown color with thick tan head. Scents of cocoa, molasses, malt extract, coffee. Flavor has a fair amount of earthy hop bitterness for a porter plus coffee, licorice, and liquid smoke. Body is a little too light, hops a little too present for this beer. Would love more roasty/chocolate and a hint more sweetness in this one, but i do like the complexity.

onceblind (3933) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 15, 2011
On tap as 5.5% with 29 IBU. Dark brown with ruby tones, and a light khaki head that doesn’t last. Aroma of sweet coffee grounds, and some light chocolate malt. Taste was wet coffee grounds, some chocolate, some caramel, and some very mild hop bitterness. Not sure why I didn’t like it more. Maybe just too light bodied, or not roasty or chocolaty enough.
