Draft: Nothing special. Both ocoffee and chocolate in the flavor, with a much more pronounced coffee flavor. Dark, but kind of watered down looking, with little head at all. It was rather roasted/toasted/burnt tasting I thought, but that was one of the better aspects of the beer I thought.

Draft at the brewery. Much better than the other beers I’ve had from them in the past. Full of mocha and chocolate flavor, a little too heavy on the roast for a porter, more like a stout, but overall it’s pretty tasty, with creamy milk chocolate and light roasted grains. I’m surprised I found something from this brewery that I liked because most of their other stuff either had recipe problems or was infected.

Draft... This beer rocks!... Clear, very dark crimson ale with a large, creamy, light brown head. Excellent retention. The aroma is a blend of milk chocolate, cinnamon, brown sugar, butter and vanilla. Well balanced flavor with lots of chocolate and a suggestion of coffee. Medium to full-bodied and lightly creamy with soft carbonation. Lengthy, chocolaty, bitter finish. World class porter!
