Draft at location. Dark brown to black, virtually no head. Medium body, light carbonation, taste is a little sour. Okay as a porter ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jandd1983 (4330) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Sampled at Destihl. It poured a dark brown color with an off-white head. The aroma was of strong chocolate, roasted malts and very light coffee. The taste was of stronger coffee, lighter chocolate and some roast. Very good.

DuffMan (10434) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 29, 2013
On tap @ Champaign location. Medium brown with ruby highlights and just the thinnest tan cap. Bourbony profile, quite a bit of oaky vanilla and bourbon sweetness trumping the dark malts. Almost no carbonation. No reference was made to this being a BA version of Pappy’s, but I wonder if that is what I had in retrospect. Looking at other raters’ reviews, nobody has had a similar experience to mine. Hmmmm....

hayduke (5209) - Eureka, California, USA - APR 29, 2013
This was from a Sample glass at the Destihl normal brewpub. It came in the glass dark brown with a tan head. Nose is chocolate malts and citrus hops. Medium plus mouthfeel. Flavor is roasted dark malts and ther is lots of hops sin the taste and also the finish. Nice tasty beer.

novels (424) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 5, 2013
Had a 4oz sample of this on draft at Destihl. Wasn’t impressed- one note, simple porter without the flavor I expect from a porter described as "robust". Use more malt, dudes.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Draft at Destihl. My favorite of this trip. Pours a deep brown, near black. Nose is chocolate, faint charcoal, herbal hops and some toasty notes. Clean. Faint fruity ester. On tasting, nice and rich chocolate, light body. Brown malt and cocoa dominate. Balanced bitterness. Light caramel. Really well made porter here!

on tap-tan-mahogany. A-roasty. T-roasty/burnt-med malt, some earthy. 3.3
