On tap @ Tampa Bay Brewing. Pretty much black with a finger of khaki foam. Has sort of a coffee and coffee ground aroma and flavor to it. Plenty of roasted malts, dark chocolate, and a hint of smoke. Maybe a little leafy. Slight orange rind. Nice note of licorice, too. Bitter finish with just mild sweetness to the flavor. A touch on the watery side is my only real knock on it.

Dark brown. The aroma is light coffee, accented by chocolate malt. Coffeeish, chocolatey palate with an interesting orangey note towards the dry, breadcrusty finish.

A dark clear brown porter with a thin brown head. A nice pleasant chocolate malt aroma, light moka coffee notes. In mouth, an intense caramel and chocolate malt with some smooth British hops, nutty and oily, quite nice and surprising. On tap at brewpub, May 24 2010.
