I had this on draft at the Boulder Beer Tap House in Denver International Airport.
Appearance: pitch black, poured a one finger mocha head that left nice lacing all the way down the glass as the beer was drank. There was also no clarity or signs of carbonation.
Smell: roastiness, chocolate, and some sweet malts.
Taste: very, very smoky. A little too much for me. There was also some earthiness, chocolate, roasted coffee, and sweet malts. Smoke and charcoal pretty much kill everything else going on in the flavor of the beer.
Mouthfeel: smooth, low to medium carbonation, full bodied, and tastes light. The smokiness leaves a slight chalkiness to the beer too.
Overall: Not bad for a porter, but there are better ones out there. The smokiness is a bit too much and wish it was toned down or not there at all. Was also looking for more flavor and sweetness.
Serving type: on-tap
