Not as thick as expected and a nice mix of malt and hops. Went quite well with my burger but would have liked something a bit fuller.
On tap at Boscos Brewpub in Memphis. Pours a dark brown, almost black color. Tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, burnt smell. Taste has similar qualities: roasted malt primarily, slight coffee. This is a good porter.

Draught at the Memphis location. Dark brown pour with a thin tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, almonds and faint earthy notes. Medium body with a lasting malt finish. Baffled by the low rating, this was a solid, classic porter. jcwattsrugger (12435) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - FEB 25, 2010

On draft at the hillsboro brewery. Clear brown pour with light mahogany highlights and small tan head. Nose of sweet fruit and toasted toffee malts. Flavor is lactic. Lightly roasty, and has a semi floral hop bitterness. Medium creamy medium full body. Not that bad...for a boscos brew. lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2009

Draft at Boscos Nashville . Pours a translucent brown with a creamy khaki head. Aroma is of chocolate and dark roasted malt, with some mild nuttiness. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Flavor of burnt malts and bitter unsweetened chocolate, countered by an aggressive dry bitterness. Perhaps a little smoke mid palate. This could use a little more sweetness, and was a little too dry for my tastes. A-7 A-4 F-7 P-3 O-13
