On tap at the brewpub.
An outstanding porter, as validated by the two enthusiastic homebrewers with me on this excursion. Has a rich, dark roasted malt flavor with faint smoke but no burnt notes. Lasting roasty aftertaste.

Near black in the glass, it is clear and has a partially durable tan head. Smooth.

Recommended.

On draft at the brewpub BBQ place in A2. Probably GPs best offering. Pours dark brown to black with a small light brown head. Smells of deep coffee, slight chocolate, and some dirt. Taste is a nice balance of rich mocha and bitter hops, with an earthy coffee and hop finish to boot. Pretty robust mouthfeel but goes down unexpectedly easy. This is my go to when we eat here.

A - Nice looking black beer that was mohogany on the edges. Brown head left some nice looking lace behind.

S - Some coffee, cocoa, slight roast. Pretty standard and good stuff for the style

T - There's some good coffee and espresso on this that bring the taste about in a pretty straight forward manner at first. Nicely bitter on the end, with some surpring fruity ethers which give it a very nice touch and a note of complexity.

M - Creamy, lower carbonation, little thin, but not bad.

O - One of the better beers I had here at Grizzly Peak. Went down pretty easily, and it's enjoyable.
