3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nitro tap at the Aspen Tap Room in downtown Aspen.
A great looking brew with a finger and half of tan cream colored head on a pitch black body.
The aroma is a faint roasted malt.
The taste is all bitter/sweet with a dose of roasted malt. Great balance.
Smooth and creamy texture. Low carbonation and heavy body.
A really enjoyable beer; just a little more on the nose would make it really great.
On tap at the Aspen brewery. Solid hazelnut brown with a strong one-finger tan head and modest lace. Aromas of roasted chocolate and coffee. Taste is similar, with dark chocolate sweetness and roasted coffee, accompanied by hints of nuttiness and piney hops. Medium body, light carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and a very dry finish.

Shaker pint draft at the Brewery tap room in Aspen, Colorado. The pour is a hazed brown with a 1/2 inch light khaki head. The aroma is roast, dark chocolate, and a bit of char. The taste leads with the char mineral, along with pine hop and finishing with slight bitter dark chocolate. The finish shows some chalk in addition to the mineral. The palate is medium bodied with a dry finish. Solid porter. jcwattsrugger (12507) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - FEB 13, 2012

Draught at brewery. Black with egg white head (on nitro). Aroma of roasted malts, notes of light coffee and faint caramel. Taste of burnt chocolate and light coffee. A fairly rich porter but also pretty smooth (the nitro certainly helped). DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2009
