Very intense and flavorful porter, notes of chocolate and coffee and with a potent kick of rye towards the finish. Interesting and impressive.

On tap at Capital Ale House, Innesbrooke. Tasted great straight off the tap. As it warmed, it got sweeter, very creamy. I could barely finish the pint as it got so sweet towards the end. Heavy butterscotch flavor towards the end.... perhaps enjoyable 8 ozs at a time.....

Reasonably strong taste of coffee and kent goldings hops. But aside from that ... heavy on the water content. Really disappointing.

Draft, Great Decatur Beerfest. Dark brown color. Interesting roasty malt and chocolate aroma, different from stanard roasty porter aromas. More roasty and chocolate flavors, with some light fruitiness - raisins. Smooth and very easy to drink, but maybe a little thin.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown color. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is chocolate and coffee, touch of sweetness. A medium to light bodied porter. Malts are slightly roasty, touch of chocolate and coffee. The rye adds some body and spiciness to the roasted malts. Nice balanced. Smooth taste. Clean, easy to drink porter. A little thin tasting, but acceptable. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
