Pours a cloudy dark brown with a tan head. Roasted coffee and dark chocolate aroma with light dark dried fruit and a earthy yeastiness. Flavor starts roasted malt with dark roasted coffee and dark cocoa followed with candied sugars and dried dark fruits and finishing with a yeasty earthiness. On tap at Frisco. Served at a nice temp just cooler than room temp. Two great breweries come together and make a great beer. Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Serving: Draft at MacDowell Brew Kitchen. Pours a murky dark brown. The nose has notes of cocoa powder, a little dark fruit, and plenty of roasted malt. Slight burnt notes, french roast coffee, chocolate, and a little chocolate covered fruit. Robust and tasty. radio_nowhere (1472) - Maryland, USA - AUG 16, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2015 Draft at Lost Dog Cafe in Arlington, VA served in a pint glass, opaque dark brown color with light tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and some faint fruit. Taste adds notes of ash, vanilla, slight nuttiness and some faint Belgian yeast notes (clove mainly). Medium body, low-moderate carbonation, creamy, rich with roasty/faint fruity finish. Slight twist on their regular porter, still very good. Damico (3147) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Pours thick dark as night with a darker bright beige head. Aroma is roasty coffee and dark chocolate cacao, so nice and rich! Flavor roasted dark malts and dark chocolate as well, on a smooth body not too thick at all! It is rich with roast but not overbearing at all.

20140627 tap at OLAR. Just a really solid big porter. Nice C-hops cleaning things up after an ashy and mineral maltiness. Stark and soft. Both of these brewers are high on my list right now. solidfunk (8964) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Awesome with great balance. Tastes like oatmeal stout with light honey sense possibly from burnt sugar. Pours black with good head and lacing. Finishes with light sweetness. Nice roast profile. To hell with summer session beers, this is where it’s at. Keep in mind my great rating of this beer could be in comparison to all the trash I’ve had today. On tap at DC Summerfest.
