This one was very good, sweetness surrounded by lots of earthy aromas. The name seems more like a beer that would try to blast your tastebuds off with one intense flavor but this one is very well balanced. It claims 7.3% alcohol and it doesn’t show up much at all. Will definitely try other Quaff On brews!

I found a delicious and smooth ale , that I really enjoyed at The Garage Pub & Grill while visiting family in Columbus, IN. It was just as I had asked it to be Tall , Dark and with quite a Handsome head ! Perfectly Strong and Satisfying . I enjoyed it thoroughly . Well done BigWoods of Nashville, IN. Bravo .

Dark brown creamy head. Aromas olive, wood, smoke, vanilla slight pepsi. Flavors light smoke, olive, wood, light wood. Dry light bitter finish. I little on the dry side for my taste of porters.

On draft at HopCat a Indianapolis. Thanks work! The pour is a nice black color with a thick ring of khaki head and no lace as it falls. It looks fantastic for a porter. Much like Founders Porter. The aroma is very light. There is a touch of roast, a hint of chocolate and just the slightest bit of metallic malt. It’s really faint and hardly there. Big bummer. The flavor is much of the same. The roasted malt and the chocolate are a little more prevalent with a much stronger metallic malt behind it. There is more light flavors, but it’s not that great. The mouth feel is watery and thin with a very light carbonation and a lingeringly metallic malt and chocolate finish. Poured good, failed everywhere else.

Draft sample at HopCat Indy. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, dark chocolate, some caramel sweetness, earthy bitterness, decent porter.

bottle @ Keg Liquors / Clarksville IN --- Aroma of toasted malt. Opaque brown / black color, tan head that drops to a thin cover, wide streaks of lace. Taste is lightly toasted malt that has mild carbonation on the swallow, then grows significantly to a chocolate hopped finish. Smooth, yet complex and balanced, quite good! I’d have this again.

APPEARANCE- looks super black at first, but actually dark brown. Head is creamy and dark in color. NOSE- a bit of carmely sweetness, but overall not much to it. FLAVOR- clean drinking porter with smooth flavor. As it warms up, the full body develops and the nuttiness and roastiness of the darker malt starts to come through.
