3.11/5  rDev -15.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pour = dark black brown w/ minimal carbonation, as expected

Smell = invitingly sweet

Taste = initially smooth, then mildly harsh / uneventful, and finally mild-moderately harsh, lingering after taste (comparable to dirtiness, so appropriate)

Buzzability = at 6%, gets you happy (or amplifies whatever your emotional buzz is by 1.5X)

As standard porters go, passable at C+, but more like a C- in my book.

Pile O dirt pours a black color with a large long lasting tan head. Their is a weak aroma, but has nice coffee notes. The taste is nice and full, with strong coffee flavors, and a nice mellow hoppy undertone. Nice strong flavors, and very full bodies. Overall a very nice strong tasty porter.

Serving type: on-tap

Thanks to jodan for my SD tick.

A - Pours a ruby-brown, looks black in the glass with a 3/4" dark tan head with good retention.

S - Roasted, subtle nuttiness and some chocolate. Pretty mild.

T - Bitter roasted and sgood amount of smoke.

D - Heavier body with medium carbonation.

O - Roasted and smokey porter. Solid, especially for my SD tick.
