First, I only review beers that I find exceptional.

This is my favorite Porter that can be found on tap year round at my Winkin Lizards bar close to my bowling alley. (Sadly, this is the only place I can find it)
I drink 1 or 2 of these while consuming a Italian Sub sandwich every week before bowling.
They help put me in the right "Frame" of mind.

I'm a home brewer and wish I could duplicate this kick butt beer.

Pours black with a one inch chocolaty head made of microscopic bubbles. YUM
The smell reminds me of eating chocolate while drinking black coffee.
Taste is a repeat of the smell.
Perfect.
For some reason I get a really good buzz off this beer.
