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.

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.

12oz can into a Duvel tulip. Thanks to mnbearsfan for this one.
A: Black body with two fingers of creamy tan head. Good retention and lacing. Beautiful.
S: Smooth, balanced mix of milk chocolate, sweetened coffee, and earthiness. Pleasant.
T: Spicy, husky malt up front, followed by coffee and a distinct cola flavor. Creamy, bittersweet finish. Pretty good, but not quite as nice as the aroma promised.
M: Medium-bodied with moderate, late-developing carbonation. All right.
O: Good, not quite great. Always fun trying a new craft beer in a can.

Thanks to Jodan for this one
All 50 states now ticked!
App- When this poured out it was a good mix of browns and blacks. It was dense in the center and a little lighter on the outsides but not reaching the red level of some others. The head was a nice mocha colored pulled apart bubbly note. The cling was nice but not overbearing or crazy. Nice looking canned porter.
Smell- This was a bit light on the nose. It had some good porter malty roasty notes and then transitioned to a bit of a smoother chocolate powder note like that at Starbucks and just tinges of a little bit of hop bitter.
Taste- I enjoyed this porter. In fact I drank both of my cans last night. It was a good amount of roasted malts with a bit of earth behind it and transfered over to a good chocolate cocoa flavor and just tinges of a little hoppy bitter. More of an Americanized and re-done recipe vs. the malt & hop heavy imports I have had.
Mouth- Its a pretty light body. Wouldve expected a bit thicker feel based on the pour. The carbonation was pretty solid medium with a fairly good creamy bubbly feel. The residual flavors are of the small bitter and some chocoalte malts.
Drink- Its a good beer. It was a bit hard to get ahold of but glad I did get to tick all 50 states. Was super rad of Jodan to hook me up. I think this could compete with other well regarded porters out there (Founders comes to mind)

On draft in a 12 ounce pint glass.
Appearance: Mahogany dark with a rapidly vanishing head.
Smell: Roast, licorice, molasses.
Taste: Roasted malt with a sweet, charcoal finish. No bitterness to speak of. Pretty simple and straightforward.
Mouthfeel: Sweet and watery. Clears the palette very quickly.
Overall: Overall not a bad porter. Not very many layers to dissect, but that’s not always a deficit. Could be a decent “everyday” beer in the cold season.
