Pint can from the Flying Saucer in Little Rock, AR. Pours a deep brown colored body with a finger-width, creamy, brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is roasty with a light dark chocolate sweetness, earth, and a few hints of dark fruit. A bit of a licorice character to this as well. Flavor is similar. Pretty heavily roasted with a light dark chocolate sweetness, touches of dark fruit and licorice, and some burnt malts. Finishes dry, roasty, lightly sweetened, and fairly earthy with a medium-light bitterness. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium-light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid porter. Roasty, earthy, and somewhat burnt with a nice, light sweetness to balance. Not bad.
Sampled at Boulevardia 2017. Comes dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, and coffee. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, and some caramel. Somewhat thin, somewhat dry, but very drinkable. BRW (2877) - Barcelona, SPAIN - AUG 2, 2016

RBESG 2016 in Barcelona, Grand Tasting. Dark brown colour. Dryish roasty aroma. Roasty dry flavour. A "thirteen in a dozen" porter. One-dimensional. BlackHaddock (7515) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2016
9th July 2016: can at the RBESG, traded from Greg Wilson, via me. Light haze to the deep amber/brown body, on top a beige crown. The nose and taste both had a caramel, coffee and chocolate leaning but this was not a sweet brew, it had a some dry bitterness throughout, especially in the finish.

50 cl can. Pours hazy brown with a small tan head head. Aroma is dry and toasted malty. Dry malty and caramelish malty. Bitter and dry roasted finish. thepatrickman (1398) - Lewes, East Sussex, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2016
Can from Greg (gregwilsonstl) -- cheers! This was so carbonated that it foamed over the top of the pint glass I poured it into, even with 2/3rds of the beer still left in the can. Disappointing -- once I finally got through the foam it was super-watery, super-thin, and super-forgettable. edgallow (4305) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 22, 2016
Sampler pours black with a tan head. Aroma of coffee, toffee and chocolate. Taste is pretty much the same, nice beer. gregwilsonstl (2572) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 1, 2016
Can. Brown. Thick off white head. Some cola. Caramel. Pretty simple. Nothing fancy, but nice drinkable porter. thegreenrooster (4484) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Pour is an almost black with a small tan head. Aroms is a nice roasted malt with a little black licorice in there. Flavor is a nice roasted malt with a decent char and ash which drys the mouth out after the swalllow. No sweet sugary malts here this is all about what can be done with a simple malt after the kiln. This is a nice dry and flavorful porter.
