Draft at the original Tampa location. Brown in color with ruby highlights, not much head retention. Aroma is on the weak side even with it warm. The lightest of roast and faint chocolate. The flavor is charred and ashy, lingering char malt after the sip. As for the body... Well, it’s very light when comparing to many others in the style.

Light & sessionable porter! While the flavor is good, it’s lacking complexity. Pours well & the aroma is good. A little added flavor could go a long way for this beer!

Bierkrug (2132) - - MAR 23, 2014
On tap at the Coral Springs office. Very dark brown pour, almost black with a pretty, thin tan head with gleaming white froth, like milk atop a fresh cappuccino. Aromas of caramel, hour old coffee, vanilla, leather, big cocoa, roasted malts and a little oak. Taste was similar, focusing on the coffee and chocolate, somewhat stout-like. Palate is pretty smooth.

onceblind (4965) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Clear dark brown with a persistent light khaki head. Nose is dry cocoa with a wee bit of biscuit and earthy roast. The taste is dry and cocoa-ish with a little salty roast and a faint little coffee tone. Surprisingly dry and roasty overall.
