COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An English style robust Porter with huge malt notes from Chocolate and Black malt matched with a huge use of Crystal malt to lend ruby hues to the corners of the glass. This dark brew is then highly hopped with imported Northdown and First Gold hops to lend a subtle earthiness in character.

Pretty weak porter. Dark brown with a thick head. Oats, chocolate, and licorice. Tried at the brewery in 2013.

Barreras (1689) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Pours a deep brown color with a nice chocolate aroma. Taste is roasted malt mixed well with chocolate. A slight bitter aftertaste that lingers but overall a decent porter. I wish the beer was a little more complex, but I enjoyed it at the DC restaurant.

Draft. Dark brown with medium tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, earthy hops, and a hint of wet paper. Medium body, chocolate, roasted malt, some fruit esters, and a dry finish.

solidfunk (9363) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 25, 2014
Pours cloudy black with good head and lacing. Some roast malt aroma and good, well-balance package all around if nothing super out of the ordinary. Finishes with medium bitterness. Tap at brewpub in D.C.

Blairgus (4613) - California, USA - NOV 21, 2013
21 nov 2013, tap at Capitol City Brewing. Black. Nose is burnt toast and dark chocolate. Thin body, a tad creamy, mildly fizzy. Slightly acidic, nice burnt malt porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

På fat @ Brewpub. Hälls upp nästan helt svart, moccafärgat skum. Kaffe och choklad i aromen. Mjölkchoklad, vanilj och kaffe i smaken. Rund beska. Aningen för söt för min smak, men på det stora hela en trevlig och lättdrucken porter. Gräddig munkänsla.

3.7
deaconmike (470) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - JUL 9, 2013
On tap at brewpub. Dark walnut with reddish highlights and tan head that persists. Goods lacing. Aroma is roast, espresso and chocolate notes. Not very sweet; somewhat bitter and dry. Decent beer

2.8
bartlebier (4118) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUL 4, 2013
(US backlog Sep 2012) [email protected] City Brewing, Downtown DC 12/09/2012. Mild, mouth-filling, somewhat "lazy" and bland porter with dominant toasted notes, even some distracting sesame.

3.4
chriso (7586) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2013
On tap at Capitol City, Downtown location in July 2006. Reddish colour. Plenty of bitter coffee in the aroma and flavour. Rather light body. Quite strong hop presence. More toasty than roasty. Pleasant enough but not that robust - could use a little more depth and body.
