Ar: Low-intensity burnt notes - charcoal and chocolate. Ap: Deep brown, almost opaque - medium coffee-tan head with good retention. T: Char and coffee up front - malty and sweet with some deep caramel notes - light blueberry esters in the background - fairly low bitterness P: Medium-bodied and very silky and rich - finish is medium-dry. O: A very nice porter - mouthfeel is really spot-on, rich without being sweet or cloying.

Rustyham (1732) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2011
This beer smells nice and toasty, some cacao. Palate is thin and head is white, though the beer is decently dark. Flavor is nice with a slight roastiness, rye slickness, but overall kind of thinbut drinkable.

bottled, thanks to cavie, poured an undistinguished muddy brown to black with nice creamy cocoa and coffee aroma, flavor is not big on rye which is fine, flavor has more of a cream and coffee roast with some toffee and nuts

tap at flying saucer in Memphis. Deep brown witha small off-white fizzy head. lactic and nutty nose-old tap line or old keg? a bit of choclate in the nose as well(baking). flavors are sweet, husky and nutty. nothing really special here but definately pretty tasty chocolate based porter. long lactic and chocolate finish. simple and to the point.

Pours hazy brownish at DLD, thanks! Aroma has notes of rue spice, chocolate, some roast and coffee. Bitter roast and spice from rye component to a smooth slightly dry finish.
