This is my first beer from these guys and I get a very good impression that they are going to do good things. Pours almost jet black with a nice beige tan head and light lacing down the glass. Aroma is vanilla, sweet chocolate, and light toffee hints. Taste is smooth sweet malty/toffee with med body and light carbonation. It has a great bittering hop that finishes dry and a lingers just long enough to make you want another sip. Overall not a bad beer at all I could see myself drinking a few more in my near future can’t wait to try some more from these guys.

mmmbeer (1230) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 29, 2013
22 oz. beer served in a shaker- poured a non transparent solid black color, one finger tan/black head formed but quickly and quietly went away to a 2mm thick one after you tell it that it lost a war. Aroma of lightly roasted malt, veggie oil, and some chocolate-meh. Hits the mouth with a medium body, dark chocolate is everywhere, almost sweeping the malt away, a chalky sensation in the middle laced with cinnamon, finish has some smoke. Meh...

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Bottle:   Deep deep brown, thin to moderate frothy pale tannish head, spotty lacing.   Soft roasted malts, a little lactose tartness, some coffee beans and bakers chocolate.   Very pale roasted malts up front.   A little tin like.   Not a lot of hop to this one.   Very minor dark or bakers chocolate.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Comes across as very pedestrian by the finish, not big on any Porter aspect.   A lighter example, with a slight metallic/tin note.   Meh...   Thanks Bill!

Thanks to dixonian for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is full of roasted malt, toffee and chocolate. The flavor is milk chocolate and roasted malt. It is very dry overall. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Nose is right on: a roasty, dry robust porter. Nailed it, seriously.

Roasted malt, coffee and chocolate, dry porter yeast. Not crazy, just well done. Exceeds my expectations. Props!
