On tap at the Dragonmead Brew Pub. Poured a dark brown color with an off white head. Roast, chocolate, nuts, and some earthiness. Blah.
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2014 Tap @ Dragonmead: Almost fully black body with not much of a head, only a thin film & a chunky, khaki colored collar around the edges. Aroma has strong notes of bitter chocolate, roasted malt, black coffee, & a hint of brown sugar. The taste has a larger coffee-ish presence; generic coffee bean notes with roasted malts, bittersweet chocolate, & a little nuttiness. Bitterly roasted finish, a little watery. Another decent, yet slightly unexciting beer by Dragonmead. gonzosauce (157) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAR 13, 2013
My first nitro-dispensed porter - man is it creamy! Indeed, non-lactic creamy smoothness overwhelms enjoyably. Quite dry, very little bitterness, essentially no sweetness, just all around smooth, soft, and comforting. Keir (183) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 4, 2013

Sample at the brewpub. Black pour with a big tan nitro head. Very dry and roasty aroma that is also slightly vegetal. Bready malt flavor with molasses and some roast on the back end.
