3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very dark brown pour, minimal head. Aroma is chocolate, vanilla, oakiness, and spice. Taste is more of the same. Pretty good.
4/29/17. Draft @SAT. Nice way to head out of TX. Classic dark w thin head and lacing. Not much of a nose but a pop of hops and nice dark flavors. Thin mouth you'd expect from a porter. Carbonation prominent. Very drinkable.

Dark brown to black pour, creamy tan head... Aroma of toasted bread, char, roasted malts... Flavor is rich and robust, some charred malty notes, licorice, roasted malts... Maybe a hint of dark fruits on finish... Solid porter

Can. Pours an opaque brown-black with an incredibly high, fine-grained, creamy, lacy medium brown head. Nose is chocolate cake, vanilla, cinnamon, roast pecans, and smoked tea. Slightly sweet and intensely bitter up front, with an herbal overtone; all the usual notes of espresso and baking chocolate, but there’s also a rosemary/mint thing going on that works, even if it sounds like it wouldn’t. There’s also a boozy streak a mile wide on this baby, redolent of port wine or sherry-cask-aged Scotch. There’s a lot going on here, and it’s outside the norm -- and that’s fun. Finish is clean and bitter. Pretty good. bu11zeye (13239) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - DEC 9, 2016
(12oz can) Pours a dark brown body with a tall beige head. Aroma of mustiness, roasted grain, cocoa, and coffee. Flavor of roasted malt, coffee, caramel, chocolate, and bread. Marheb (6334) - MontrÃ©al, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 12, 2016
(En fût à la brasserie): Un porter d’une richesse mince à moyenne transportant des tonalités très anisées, de la mélasse, noix de coco et poussières de torréfaction. Très bon.

Draft, Big Hops @ SAT. Nice aroma of chocolate. Black, with a reddish tint at the edges. Very little head/lacing. Very nice bittersweet, espresso flavor. Good body. Overall, a very good porter. PorterPounder (8357) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 29, 2015
San Antonio, TX - on tap at Busted Sandal tap room. Deep dark brown leading to black pour with a thin eggshell white head clinging to the edge of the glass. Creosote and licorice in the aroma. Robust flavor with strong espresso notes, bitter unsweetened chocolate, a touch of chocolate. Thick mothfeel with a solid chalky mouthfeel. Glad I got a full pint of this rather than the sampler.
