Pored at brewery, deep brown with white head. Aroma was coffee and chocolate as was taste, roasted malts in finish. Alcohol hidden but warming in finish.

I have this on tap at the brewery every week. Its hard to believe that no adjuncts are used in crafting this full-bodied, smooth, coffee forward Porter. Delicious and a must-have in the Northern Virginia/DC area.

Poured into a snifter. 3.5 A: Black color. One finger of frothy tan head. Retention is below average, but a short ring of lacing is left nonetheless. 4.5 S: Wow is this powerful. Unyieldingly grainy with equally potent chocolate. Toasty after that. Mild roastiness. Coffee with cream. I love the nose on this. Its both bold and well integrated. 4.5 T: Taste is just as impressive. Again a HUGE graininess. This is certainly the grainiest porter Ive ever had and I love it. Lots of chocolate with coffee with cream underneath. Again just a mild roastiness, but it works so well. Sweet, hearty neutral maltiness. Just so good. Love this. 5.0 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Both creamy and silky smooth. Awesome here. 5.0 D: This is one of those beers that you need to buy lots of random beers to find a hidden gem. This is a hidden gem. I could drink this all damn night. I think SteveFinny sent me this, which means Im even more indebted to him than I already am. This is a killer beer. Get it, drink it, love it.

Molasses, brown sugar, anise, prune, fig, nutty. Medium bodied, good sweet/bitterness balance. Outstanding porter.

robgibbens (432) - Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - MAR 9, 2012
Pours black with a short light head. Cocoa and coffee aromas. Taste is bitter but there is a subtle sweetness that comes through after that initial bitterness. Finishes dry with a coffeeish aftertaste.

This is a dark and super thick. This has lots of roasted and smokey notes to it that make it a great drink. Its heavy and not something for a hot day.
