COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named for the ridiculous 4 foot dirt pile we had to put our brewery on to get us out of the FEMA-designated 100 year floodplain (no-one can remember this part of Spearfish ever flooding). This robust porter is black in color, is medium-bodied and has a rich, roasted malt flavor ending with a pleasing hop flavor and mild hop bitterness.

Can (big thanks to my friend Mike for getting this for me!); pours dark brown with a tan head; aroma of roasted malts and chocolate with some coffee and molasses notes; taste is light bitter with roasted malts, coffee, and a hint of chocolate; dry finish with some lingering roasted malt; just a touch thin but otherwise pretty good

popery (2170) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 25, 2016
12 oz can. Very dark brown. Fizzy light brown bubbles dissipate completely within seconds. Appears thin. The aroma is chocolatey with a good dose of cola and a light metallic twang. Thin, simple caramel aroma. Weak caramel sweetness in the taste. Cola underneath. Mildly nutty. Sticky and somewhat cloying. Medium to thin body. Light herbal hop bitterness in the finish. Messy flavor without much satisfying roundness.

12 Fl. Oz. Can. Poured deep brown, nice tan head and lots of lacing. Aroma of coffee and chocolate combined with some vanilla. Taste has roast noted some cocoa and coffee . Nice porter, some tartness to it; overall very drinkable and very enjoyable.
