Had this one on cask at the Grey Lodge this past Saturday.

Appearance: Pours dark brown with a 1.5 finger off white (dirty beige) crown that displays good retention and some lace.

Smell: Chocolate, toffee, wood, and moderate roasted malt.

Taste: Same as nose. Well integrated and enjoyable.

Mouthfeel: Cask conditioning really has helped this one. Just a beautiful creamy delight.

Drinkability: Sessionable. (412 characters)

Appears a opaque black with a tan cap that quickly fades into a tiny head. Tons of scattered lacing is left around the glass.
Smell is of cocoa, herbs, cut wood, toffee, and roasted malts.
Taste is of the aromas with a flavorful punch of ripe fruit and vanilla smoothness.
Mouthfeel is of the aromas with a chewy full roastines thy screams brown sugar in espresso from a mile away. (381 characters)

I enjoyed this one night on tap at the brewpub in West Philly while Jeff was making pies and Rosemarie flittered about. Good service from the bartender, BTW, who's name I didn't get but was from another country (I'm thinking perhaps Croatia?). Anyway, I'm pretty sure this beer is named for the Man Full of Trouble Tavern (the only surviving tavern of colonial Philadelphia, built 1759) located at 125 Spruce St. near Little Dock Creek, and later on, Dock Street - inspiration for the original Dock Street Brewing Company (and although no breweries were ever actually located there, there were several in the vicinity). The story behind the name of the beer, however, is probably more interesting than the beer itself which was simply a basic porter: Typical appearance. Average head retention and lacing. Chocolatey aroma with some limited roastiness. Medium bodied. Moderate carbonation. Creamy smooth and chocolatey and nutty/caramelish with just a hint of black coffee. Restrained bitterness. No real hop flavors to speak of, as it really should be in an English-style porter. It was very drinkable, but also quite simplistic, although I can't exactly fault it for that. A decent pint to be sure!!! (1,202 characters)

Pint glass on tap at the Dock Street Brew Pub.

Poured a deeper brown color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of chocolate, some roastiness, and caramel. Tastes of chocolate, caramel, lighter roast, and nutty. On the sweeter side (I would have liked some bitterness in the finish). (294 characters)
