I’ve had better. I detected a slight medicinal (band-aid) flavor . . . sanitation problem. . . ? LilBeerDoctor (4134) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of lots of roasted malt, char, and pretzel. Flavor also lots of roast/char, salty pretzel, some sweet malt in the finish, and a hint of lactose. Smooth palate. Pretty good porter.

Sampled at the brewery. The aroma is chocolate, malty sweetness. The flavor is roosted malts, chocolate, hop bitterness that balances the sweetness. A well made porter. BeerandBlues2 (13697) - Escondido, California, USA - OCT 5, 2010

Thanks again to gregwilsonstl for sharing this growler. Pours dark reddish brown with a small tan head that leaves quickly. The aroma is a touch nutty with milk chocolate, smooth roast and vanilla. The body is fairly light and crisp with a low amount of carbonation. The flavor begins with some spice, dark chocolate and smooth roasted malt. The finish has some malty bitterness, dark chocolate and a bit of dough. Decent porter. ajnepple (6979) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 19, 2013
