Robust porter aged on toasted oak, just enough for a dry woody finish. Great as you cuddle up to the holiday fire.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - FEB 13, 2009
Tap at brewpub. Pours a deep, deep mahogany amber with hints of red wine, chocolate, and a touch of spearmint in the nose. Flavor is cedar-chip-soaked winey chocoate. Average mouthfeel. Nice sipper; definite repeat.

Part of a sampler at the brewpub. Pours a light brown with a tan head. Sweet burnt and roasty nose. A good amount of roast in the flavors with chocolate and burnt notes. Tasty, but not near as good as the Black Snow.

At the brewpub. It doesn’t stand up the the Black Snow also available today. It is a little sweeter than that beer, and not as black. Smooth with processed grain and lightly roasted malt. Sweet with some sugar.

BVery (9574) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JAN 31, 2009
TAP: at Town Hall on 1.30.09. Hazy brown pour, small tan head. I’m having a hard time describing the aroma, other than its unique. It’s sweet, to be sure, and some spice. Some coffee and grain on taste, a little thin, maybe a little woody. Interesting beer, but just okay.

TURDFERGUSON (4045) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 15, 2009
Growler shared by JCB. Thanks J! P Pours a hazy brown with a small tannish head. Every other whiff of this beer produces a strong new plasticy aroma that is not very pleasant. Flavor is very dry and chalky with the oak taking a front seat. The base beer seems to be really lacking here. Mildly disappointing brew from a brewery I have come to respect.

Growler generously shared by JCB. Didn’t realize this had so few ratings! Nice dark brown pour, but not opaque by any means. Hit up front with that plasticy-cardboard aroma that some porters tend to show, but getting past that, there are some good flavors here. Lots of sweet vanilla up front, with a bit of roast. Has a dry, chalky finish. Seems like this has the potential to be good...

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 9, 2009
Sampled from a growler sent by MatSciGuy - thanks, Levi!! Crisp, lively pour with a faint tan head. As Ethan said there was a slightly odd quality in the nose. Mostly vanilla and oak chips, but there was a kind of cardboardy thing happening amidst some kind of anonymous confection. Burnt toast rounds out the taste, and I fear that the base beer isn’t up to snuff. The body is thin, the finish too chalky. Not bad, but not anything more than that either.

emacgee (4611) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JAN 9, 2009
Thanks to JCB for sharing. Pours a dark brown that allows some light the head is frothy and light tan. Nice pour for a growler. The nose is strange, mildly sweet, some plastic, spices, some malty character and roast. Flavor also shows this new plastic flavor as Sam put it. Also getting some dark malt, roast, little bit of coffee. Palate is dry with a bitter grain feel.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 3, 2009
Pint at Town Hall on 1/3/2009 appears black with a small head that diminishes rapidly and no lace. Aroma of chocolate and malt. The flavor is nice and roasted with a woody note. The palate is pretty significant. Overall, the best of the day out of the three I tried.
