2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Aroma of malt with a note of bitterness. Pours an opaque brown with rapidly disappearing off-white head and minimal lacing. Tastes of malt, coffee like bitterness in the finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, a nice hoppy porter.
(Draught) Pours a dark brown (near black) with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, minerals, and grass. Flavor of roasted malt, mineral, cocoa, and grain with a dry finish. ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - MAR 28, 2010
This unfiltered porter has a dark brown, thick appearance, almost soda-like, with an off-white, bubbly head. A great malt-coffee aroma. This, unfiltered mouth feel that packs a great malt punch. Lightly bitter, almost mossy palate. Specialty grains add a nice coffee/chocolate character. Easy to drink and unoffensive. jumpjet2k (314) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 30, 2009
Tap at the brewpub. Pretty dark amber in color, with a thin and lasting head. Definite roastiness in the aroma. Flavor has some strong chocolate and coffee flavors up front, with some malty roastiness as well and a little bit too much hop bitterness than would be balanced. Smooth and just thick enough for the style. Overall, slightly unbalanced but the best this brewpub has to offer so far.
