A good smoky flavor with no aftertaste. Goes very well with food. Toasted with a hint of coffee for a dry finish.

dark, clear chocolate brown color. nice head retention. swirly dark tan head. aroma is coffee, cocoa, grape. slightly metallic. flavor is baking cocoa, cappucino, espresso. warm alcohol finish, and a strong, coffee/cocoa/licorice finish. surprisingly pleasantly bitter, heavy lacing.

finally made the trip down JUST for this beer!

pours a darker version of the typical burgundy brown porter... nearly black with a slight haze and lasting tan ring for a head. lots of roast on the nose without any sign of ashiness... lactose, wood, a touch of cocoa, fruit (though i dont know which) and some floral hops. the palate is dry... almost chalky on the finish... flavors in between of chocolate, slight char, toasty grain, floral hops and a peppery kind of spice. it is very well balanced... safe enough for tux and plenty for the nerds to enjoy. medium bodied with a soft texture and thick/rich mouth feel from carbonation. 7/4.5/7/4/16/3.9

Good dark color and aromas. Full nectar with strong flavors. This one holds it’s own for a porter and finishes with good length. Nice job guy’s.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - APR 15, 2007
Fresh growler courtesy of cbkschubert. Pours dark brown with a thin soapy head. Smells of roasted malt, chocolate, some dark fruit, and spicy. Tastes of dark chocolate, bitter hops, and splashes of peppery spiciness. More hoppy than Im used to in a porter. Mouthfeel is a little on the thin side. Finishes slightly bitter with some sweet maltiness.

Nice dark roasted flavor. Its a bit thin, but a vast improvement over their Blackout stout.
