Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine April 2007.

Label shows a dog looking at three pairs of legs in heels and reads: "So many legs ... So little time!" Holy 1980's. Seems like it should come with ZZ Top theme music. There's also mention of winning medals at the World Beer Cup, but, as always, the proof is in how it tastes.

Deep and dark brown in color, and so opaque it might as well sit black in the glass. The head is a creamy, tight, milky-coffee-colored lace that collects in a ring. Big aroma of baker's chocolate and cookie dough, paired with a whiff of milk. Smooth on the palate with a round milky feel, and a bit grainy beneath. Tight carbonation, lively. Big, highly roasted grain notes, with an acrid bite and some smoky tanginess. Unsweetened chocolate, coffee grinds and cold black coffee follow, with just a touch of sugary lacto-sweetness that helps to offset the roasted characters. Suggestions of burnt raisins. Hops are thin. Lurking within the acridness is a kiss of herbal. Finish is powdery; dry with a lingering semi-burnt toast flavor.

A well-brewed Porter that's just shy of being as robust as we'd like, but it's got balance. You could definitely have a session of these and not lose interest, but allow this one to warm before drinking so you can pick up all of its nuances. Try pitting it against some grilled pork chops, blackened fish or a sweet chocolate dessert.
