Aromas of coffee, chocolate, and subtle hops. Black with ruby highlights, khaki head with medium retention. Bitter, lightly sweet, roasted coffee and chocolate flavors. Medium-full bodied, lively carbonation, roasty, chocolatey finish with lasting bitterness and roast. It’s nice to have a good, homemade porter minutes from my home.
On tap at Sedona. Black. Smells of roasted coffee. Taste is iced coffee, dirt, roasted malt, light burnt flavor. Tasty.

This is awesome. Pours cloudy dark brown with good head and lacing. Nice dose of robust malt. Finishes bitter. Roasty with dark chocolate and coffee - everything a good porter should be. Good stuff. Tap at DC Beer festival.

Sampled during CBC 2013. Almost black pour with a small tan head. Coffee, roasted malts, acidic aspects, some chocolate. Light flavor, a bit thin, some chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts. Not bad. Braudog (6835) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Draft at Taphouse/Queensway. Ashy and toasty in a nice way, but also a bit thin. Comes with a sweet anise aroma, and a little bit of bitter, baking chocolate in the funky finish. (#5173, 7/21/2013) Velkyal (322) - Gordonsville, Virginia, USA - NOV 25, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Pours as black as coal, topped with a light tan head. The nose is a touch of coffee, some graininess and a bit of general spiciness. Taste wise, chocolate, nutty, a slightly roasty edge. Medium bodied and quite moreish. Good stuff! Drake (14078) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Draft at the brewery. Pours a dark brown color with a large dark brown head. Good head retention and nice lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and peppery hops. The taste is roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and a hoppy finish. Medium bodied, well balanced and chewy. Very nice porter. I liked this one a lot.
