On tap; served in a pint glass. At Red Rock Downtown Barbecue in Ypsilanti, MI.

Appearance: The beer is an opaque black brown in color. The foam had subsided into a ring by the time the glass reached the table.

Aroma: Sweet malt with no hops presence.

Taste: Followed the aroma pretty much: Malty with only a subtle hops flavor. Black coffee and bitter chocolate with some sweetness to balance.

Mouthfeel: The beer has a medium body. Carbonation is at a medium light level.

Overall: This beer goes well with BBQ. As noted above, it is more sweet and malty rather than hoppy which is fine with me as I like the malty end of the spectrum. The waiter said that this is one of their "stock" beers. I will look for it again on my next visit to Red Rock and plan to visit OG in the near future.

A - Dark coffee brown, medium tan head that decreases to thin layer of a lighter tan head.

S - Rich dark coffee with a bitter sweet chocolate.

T - Well balanced Trio of chocolate, roasted malt, and bitterness. Just the right amount of richness and bitterness is achieved to complement the milky chocolate finish.

M - Heaver side of medium body feel. Bitterness that's followed by roasted milk chocolate.

D - My preferred way to drink this beer is while snacking on blueberries and/or strawberries. The sweetness of the fruit and the rich bitterness of the beer are a amazing combo.

Primordial Porter - Original Gravity Brewing Company I had this beer at Slows barbecue on tap. Pours thick and murky brown with a nice tan head that disapated quickly. Chocolate smells along with an earthiness. This beers hops were interesting, dank but intriguing..Smooth and chewy. goes down easy, no bitter. A wonderful compliment to dinner.

Been meaning to stop by this place for a while, got a friend who lives in a nearby farm town.
Was served in a 20oz nonic glass.

A: is a dark- brownish-black color, cloudy, with a beige 1/4 inch head with good amounts of lacing.

S: Smells robust, chocolate, coffee, toffee, earthy tones, woody tones, smoky

T: Tastes pretty good, woody character, smoky feel, very chocolatey, toffee, coffee, barley, spices

M: Smoky feel, full bodied with medium carbonation, very rich, very pleasant

O: This a pretty good porter and it's got a cool name. I was paying cheap prices and was loving this stuff. If you ever find yourself in Milan, here is a place to swing buy and grab a few.
