The. Best. Porter. What more needs to be said? I live about 15 minutes from the brewery and get a growler of this about once a week. Beyond delicious, so well balanced, toasted with a little note of coffee at the end. Perfectly roasted!

Bottled March '14.
Very dark brown. Fully opaque. Forms a large tan head that takes a while to settle down. Leaves some spotty lacing on the way down. Aroma is dark toasty-roasty malts with some lighter notes of pine. Taste is comprised of deeply roasted malts, baking chocolate, and a hint of vanilla. Not sure if it is the age of the beer, but unfortunately, this beer is heavily over carbonated, giving it a lighter body than it should have and thinning out the taste. Overall, I could see this beer having potential, but the carbonation is far too lively for this to be a world-class beer.
