On tap at Boneyard Bistro in Sherman Oaks, CA.
Pours an opaque super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and char aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, char, and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast and hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a nice balance of roast and hop aspects.

popped this top and poured into my favorite Cape May Brewing Co. glass. Appearance was spot on, with a creamy head and a beautiful dark body. The smell was warm and nutty, with hints of toffee. Taste was a great standard for porter, hints of chocolate and coffee, small note of caramel. This brew is hearty and satisfying. The best part is that it is readily available in almost all beer stores!
