Growler poured a dark brown with a small amber head. Aromas of roasted malt, coffee,and a hint of dark chocolate. Palate was a bit light for the style and creamy. Flavors of roasted malt, coffee, hint of smoke and chocolate. BBB63 (6567) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 9, 2005
GABF 2005: Reddish deep brown hue with a good head and lace. The aroma has notes of chocolate, espresso, caramel, wlanut, prune, plum, and earthy. The taste has a nutty bitterness with mocha and roasted malt notes. Some coffee and acidic fruit undertones additionally. The feel is lively but a bit chalky. A solid quaffable porter.

I was too lazy and tired to ask if this one was on nitro, but I’d bet a hefty sum of money that it was ... all the classic signs were painfully obvious. Black body with a frothy, tightly packed and lasting off-white head. Smooth, creamy and fluffy texture; a little too light at times. Surprisingly, there were some nice roasty notes with a slight nip of burnt. Wondered how much the nitro robbed an even greater roasty potential. Solid overtone of sweet chocolate. Alcohol seemed to be hidden well. Pretty good porter.
