Enjoyed on cask while watching baseball on the screens at the brewpub. Came out black, beautiful, with a thick tan head. Excellent lacing and retention. Aromas as expected.
Roast-toasty sweet porter that went smooth and creamy. No hops could be determined, though they may have been muted with the cask work. Finished clean and nice. I could've drank this one all night.

A very solid porter. Rock Bottom KoP is really turning things around in my estimation.
After having their very good amber last time, I had the pleasure of trying this porter. A robust porter which PopeDX affectionately describes as a "stout in a dress."
Roasty. Solid mouthfeel. Watery brewpub beer seems to be long gone, at least with the beers I've tried lately here. I feel like giving them bonus points.

A decent porter. Very dark brown with chestnut highlights and a dense, tan head. The foam thinned to a ring and left behind quite a lot of spotty, streaky lacing. Aromas of dark malts, more roasted than burnt, and some sweetness. Mild hop bitterness with caramel, roast, light burnt character, and a hint of fruit. Bitter chocolate showed up towards the finish, along with a bit of fresh hop flavour. Medium/light body and carbonation, on the creamy side with a drying grain texture. This had more roast character than I tend to like, but it was well made with a nice balance and mouthfeel.

The body is an almost opaque black beneath a frothy light brown head that holds well before dropping to a wide collar. The nose expresses chocolate with a touch of roastiness and an underlying current of citrusy hops. The body is medium with a fine, median carbonation that leaves it crisp in the mouth. The flavor delivers a light acidity (as expected in most dark beers) and some fruitiness upfront before warming to reveals its chocolatey side. More fruity hops are revealed in the finish along with a mild touch of dry roastiness.

Had this at the King of Prussia RB,pours a deep brown with a slight but sticky head,aroma is very roasty and chocolaty.The taste is very warming, a nice change up here in the middle of summer.There is a slight dryness in the finish.A pretty appetizing beer I was looking to drink something dark when I got there and I was very happy to drink this.
