A good porter; light on the hops (but enough that you can drink it with pizza), medium malt makes it go down easy.

Sampling right now on 7/11/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a tulip glass.

Pours a deep brown in color with a good 2+ finger foamy off-white head that lasts a while then settles to a thick layer on top and sides. Decent amount of lacing is seen. The aroma is of roasted malts, coffee with a hint of hazelnut as well. Very nice. The taste has more going on with the roasted malt coming through with a hint of caramel and toffee and hazelnut coffee even. Pretty smooth to drink with no bitter or harsh aftertaste. Perfect carbonation. A great brew.

3.91/5  rDev 0%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Brown, earthly, hint of deep red, foam lighter, hazelnut cream color. Heavy, overwhelming, coffee grains, malt, caramel, although only 5.6 alc, rightfully designated as extra strong. Citrus, roasted nut cortex and some smoke in aftertaste. As it is written on bottle, beer for hard working men and woman. You can't make mistake with steaks.
