3.53/5 rDev +1.7%
On tap at Tony's Darts Away in Burbank, CA.
Pours a clear dark orange-brown with a foamy tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and slight char aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, char, and peanut butter flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with interesting cocoa and peanut butter qualities in the taste.

some audible sizzle rising from a 2 finger head off a off white foam cap, settles down in quick order but does not go the way of the dodo, lacing is OK - nothing special, most porters exhibit a brown or black hue but this one is a dark ruby, further inspection reveals organized columns of carbonation culminating into clans clamoring to the top, a decent enough looking brew
toffee with a strange faint hint of cherries, dry cocoa/chocolate notes, some faint notes of wet wood, cocoa powder would be the most obvious interloper here, overall a muted but nice quaff
almost starts off a bit watery and the carbonation is less smooth than it is prickly, there is very little flavor initially but then the aftertaste really kicks it into high gear, the wet wood taste is there, along with faint hints of smoke, some chocolate/cocoa notes, a definite dryness takes over in the finish... but. the taste is off putting, not pour me out but it is just off, if this is "stock" I ain't investing.
I prefer my porters to be as smooth as woody allen's and roman polansky's victims derrieres, also the flavor is not deep, it is also off in my opinion. there are many porters out there vastly superior to this
