Draught at Darkness day.pours dark brown/black with a medium tan head. Aroma has a wonderful fresh hoppy aroma of pine and citrus, floral and tropical. From the aroma the taste is rather surprising, its starts with smooth bready malts and grains mellowing into citrus and a non-offensive bitter pine. Rather light body. Really interesting, nice!

On tap at brewery. Pours dark brown with a quick soapy kahki head that fades to a thin collar and shows some lacing. Aroma is roasted malt and gentle hops on the nose. Taste is again smooth roasted malt little chocolate and a subtle bitter dry hop throughout. Palate is thin to medium with a chaulky finish. Solid easy drinker, very nice. Not so sure this qualifies as a porter more of a black PA or a mild black IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at Darkness Day
Pours bascially black with a small head and good lace.
The aroma is quite pungently wonderful featuring lots and lots of dank and piney hops.
The flavor is bitter with some spicy and piney hops right up front. The hoppiness fades about mid palate but keeps some nice citrus and allows some of the roast to shine. There really isn’t a lot of competition between roasty bitterness as most of that roastiness is very subdued giving the beer a more lightly toasted character, which works well here.
The palate is pretty gosh darned thin, I was surprised to see that this had 5% abv, I would have guessed it a bit lower in gravity, but it is highly drinkable and doesn’t ever come across as watery really.

Pours a dark dark brown, just light enough that you can tell it’s clear. Smell is bread with some pine and citrus notes. Like a very resinous black IPA. The taste definitely holds that pine, but with quite a bit more bread, some toffee, and a pleasant brown-sugariness which I fell in love with. I don’t know if they’ll ever do this again, but I’d drink more.
