Sampled in a 4 ounce glass while at the brewery/restaurant on May 31st, 2014 while in Topeka, Kansas for the weekend. Made some notes while sampling. Alcohol content is 5.7% (ABV) and 23 IBU's.

Served at the table so I didn't see the actual pour. The color is very dark brown and almost black actually with a small beige head that left some sticky lacing on the glass. The aroma is of roasted malts with a hint of coffee. The taste is about the same with a hint of chocolate in the mix as well. perfect carbonation and is a tasty brew with no bitter aftertaste. A great American Porter!

Pours a dark brown, nearly black from a short distance, with some deep ruby hues in the light. Was presented to me with no head.

The aroma is ok, but weak. Some roasty malts manage to peak their heads, giving a bit of coffee and a slightly sweet note.

The taste is decent. Slightly roasty, with a bit of chocolate and a touch of coffee. Lightly sweet with even a light cherry note.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and lightly carbonated.

Drinkability is fairly high. It's nothing incredible, but certainly sessionable and enjoyable.

Strong cream/dairy nose. Solid black color. Cream comes through in the taste and adds a full mouthfeel. Light at the front, but your patience is rewarded with chocolate at the back and a lightly roasty finish. It was a lighter porter than I prefer, especially considering it was billed as a "Robust" English porter, but for an uncomplicated refresher it works fine.

Lighter in color than most porter I have had the pleasure of, brown with a thin tan lace on the glass. The aroma is of roasted malt with hints of a rye-like bouquet. The solid body upholds a roasted flavor with a lingering chocolate taste. The is a latent bitterness that finishes the brew off well.

Virtually black hue, w/ deep, clear garnet around the glass when held to light. Persistent one fingered tan head leaves lace. The aroma is comprised of smokey dark chocolate and a hint of burnt black patent with light caramel malt sweetness eeking in. Round, assertive hop bitterness upfront in flavor narrows into a sharper, lingering black patent bitterness. This combines with caramel sweetness and chocolate malt to lend a pleasantly bittersweet dark chocolate overall character. Moderately bodied, w/ a lightly watery mouthfeel that falls a touch short of supporting the rich malt profile. Finishes dry, w/ charcoal notes and smokiness lingering on the palate. Tiger Paw is a flavorful porter, but may be a bit too overstated with the deeply roasted / burnt malt flavors. It's definitely a tasty and above average brewpub example, however.
