A fine Old World porter combining British pale two-row malt with Crystal, cara-pils and chocolate malts; plus a small portion of black patent. The porter is flavored with Northern Brewer & Cascade hops.

Eh it looked pretty good. Too bad the bartender either didnt know what he was doing or the tap was way too pressured. Taste just didnt live up to what it looked like. Just bland. A good effort since its a pretty big style, but not much besides bland dark roastedness.

Tap at TBBC. Pours dark brown with beige head. Aroma, floral hops, caramel malts, some chocolate. Taste is hoppy, floral notes, lightly bitter chocolate finish with a nice caramel / malty notes on the palate. Little coffee in teh afetrtaste. For some reasons this one was a freshly new batch, and the beer seemed to be much lighter than other versions. It remains an outstanding porter, highly drinkable.

Draft at the brewpub. Cloudy dark brown pour. Aroma is bitter chocolate malt with some citrus hops. Taste is smooth malty chocolate, bitter grains and a good hop bitterness all balance really well. Very good porter.

Tap at the brewery. Pours to a REALLY deep mahogany body with a creamy light beige head. The aroma is tootsie rolls and light grainy chocolate. The cara-pils and crystal are there to round it out. Some light smoky things going on too. The flavor is a nicely grainy chocolate and has a balanced hoppiness. Nice fitting texture.

gonzo46and2 (108) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 18, 2008
On tap at the brewery. Dark thin body with dark roast flavor. Light bitterness on the finish. Well balanced and easy to drink a few with the low abv and thin body.

BBB63 (6301) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAR 24, 2008
Tap at brewery: Deep brown hue with a creamy pale brown head and very good sticky lace. The aroma has notes of chocolate, vanilla, walnut, slight smoke, fig, and herbal esters. The taste starts with sweet mocha along with some coffee and nutty notes, slight forward but nice flavor profile. The mouth feel is medium-bodied with a creamy soft character, dry finish. A really nice porter and the best I had from TBBC, got a 2nd.
