Notes/Commercial Description:
Know that feeling when you come across a diamond in the rough? This 12 oz sessionable gem, with notes of chocolate and hints of caramel, is well worth any trade. You'll soon be sifting through the couch cushions for spare change and crawling through closets for Great grandma's gold chain.

12 oz bottle, no date.

pours a very dark brown, off-white colored head that fades to a thin ring. no lacing. mild milk chocolate sweet aroma. taste is similar, just a touch of sweetness. no roast flavors at all. medium to thicker body, mild carbonation.

overall - easy to drink, subdued flavors.

12oz bottle, no bottling date. Thanks Matt for sending this one my way. Poured into an unlabeled snifter today, 11/1/2013.

Pours a very dark, opaque black body with a ton of offwhite head. It took a few minutes to do a full pour. Lacing is very nice, a bit spotty but very sticky.

Smells fairly tame. Quite soapy actually, with a slight hint of butter. Then there's not a whole lot else. Not much hint of the underlying malts.

Flavour is quite smoky and roasty. This is what a solid porter should bring to the table in one form or another. A bit of dark chocolate bitterness, a lot of smokiness and some roastiness. Finishes off with some char. Quite a bit like a campfire, but without the sweetness of smores.

Thinner bodied, creamy and very highly carbonated. Leaves a dry, smoky finish on the palate. Drinkable, no hint of alcohol. Sessionable.

Solid porter. Not the best by any means especially compared to shelf porters like Edmund Fitzgerald or Black Butte. But its solid.. if you don't have access to the aforementioned porters and this is local to you, then this isn't a bad choice. But its certainly not the best choice.
