Hand-bottled bomber courtesy of crellmoset split at an impromptu Charlottesville BA tasting. Many thanks to Chris, dkachur and Proteus93 - bottle split between us all. Sampled in Williamsburg Alewerks tasting glass.
Deep and dark with a solid maple walnut head and sparse lacing. Quite opaque - a little on the dark side, even for the style.
Nice sniff of roasted coffee - mild and very creamy pecans abound as well, but in subtlety. Solid hop presence - a little pine and grass together. Coffee balances out with deep dark roasted malt. Quite velvety.
Excellent balance in this - pecans provide a mild nuttiness and maybe a pinch of salt. Coffee grounds and some bittersweet chocolate notes with no hint of alcohol. Nicely done.
This is very creamy - the pecans smooth out the bitter coffee and chocolate malts. Slight slate in there with a little hop grass.
This sips very nicely. Balance doesn't show a hint of alcohol and it's very smooth and comforting. I have wanted to try this offering for quite a while so I am happy for the opportunity to check it out - no disappointment here. Must be even creamier and smoother on the tap. Well-crafted.

Served on tap into a shaker glass.
A- Poured black with an off-white frothy head that left lots of splashy lace.
S- Big chocolate, cocoa, nutty, brown sugar, and spice notes in the aroma. Very aromatic and rich aroma.
T- Big chocolate, cocoa, nutty, roasted malt, brown sugar, and some light spice notes.
M- Very creamy, smooth, silky, medium body, and dry finish. Incredible mouthfeel and just what I want in a porter or stout.
O- This is the first beer I have had from a Texas brewery on my trip in Texas and it has set the bar very high. This porter is incredibly flavorful, unique, and silky smooth. This beer reminds me of nutella with the big cocoa notes and nutty characteristics.
Serving type: on-tap
