Draft at Taphouse/Queensway. Looks like a porter ... still and pitch black. Not much of a head. Easy to drink with just a mellow bitterness, and without much of a distinctive tilt either way. Their description is well written and accurate. Solid, but lacking distinction. (#4968, 4/2/2013) Beergeek23322 (2602) - Chester, Virginia, USA - MAR 24, 2013
sample at my local beer store. This beer have all the right components and aromas, but somehow seem too thin. The roasted malts and sweet finish give it balance through. obguthr (6431) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAR 21, 2013
