On tap @ Publican in Chicago. How is this not a black IPA? Incredibly hoppy porter in true 3F fashion, delicious, incredibly drinkable. But truthfully, it is the hops that steal the show here, fresh and bright and yummy.

Thought I rated this before. On tap at the brewpub, mid octoberish. Brown pour frothy brown cream head. Very hoppy aroma, citruis and pine. Smells like an IPA. Taste is more hops with a bit of choc and roasted malt. I’d venture to say that this is closer to black IPA, but has the thicker body or a well rounded porter. Very enjoyable.

Poured on tap at Duke's alehouse crystal lake, Illinois. Pours dark black with one inch head. Smells of roasted grain, grassy. Has immediate roast taste followed by sharp citra twang. A bit toasty and hoppy for a porter, but still a wonder.

Pours a dark brown with a brownish off white head. Aroma consists of citra and coffee. An OSS combination and a little watered down. Points earned on uniqueness.

Expertly malted porter with loads of character. A nice nutty nose with a underlying hop flavor, perfect texture and crisp tones. I loved the lace this one left on the glass, and it really did have a great toffee nut flavor. I want to drink this again!
