look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
On-tap at Deep-Ellum for their Texas Beer Takeover event for the release party of Brash's The Bollocks. Served in a pint glass.
A- An opaque jet-black with about a finger of light creamy slightly bubbly mocha brown head that has good retention, but dissipates slowly. Some spotty mocha lacing. About average carbonation.
S- Pecans, dark chocolate, light roasted malts, some espresso, about average aroma strength.
T- Lightly toasted pecans, some almonds, a tiny bit of sweet dark chocolate, light espresso, lightly sweet, with a pecan slightly chocolate malty aftertaste.
M- Smooth, drinkable, about average carbonation, lightly creamy, abv well hidden.
O- This was a very nice porter that I'm glad I got the chance to try on-tap (first time it's been served in MA). It had a nice pecan taste balanced with chocolate malts with an excellent drink-ability. Definitely not nearly as good as other porters I've had such as Founders and HF Everett. To reach that level it would have needed a little bit more flavor/sweetness and creaminess. Overall well done and I recommend trying some if you get the chance.

A: very dark brown. Almost black, but not quite. Forms a thick dark tan colored head that has good retention. Some light lacing.
S: A lot of barrel comes through on this one. Oak, vanilla, and a lot of alcohol. Actually this one comes off as fairly hot.
T: sweet and malty with notes of brown sugar, molasses, raisin, and chocolate. Lots of alcohol on the finish.
M: on the heavier side of medium with medium carbonation, very mild bitterness, and lots of spicy, hot alcohol.
O: a nice porter, but the alcohol really comes through to the point of distraction. if there is pecans in this beer, you'd never n

On cask at Hay Merchant in Houston. Review from notes.
A: Pours pitch black, pretty much opaque. A two finger whispy, tan head forms with excellent retention. Rings of sticky spiderweb lace is left. This is a looker.
S: A soft nutty aroma. Roasted malt, milk chocolate, cream coffee. A light sweetness of vanilla in the nose. Excellent.
T: Follows the nose. Nutty, roasted pecans, light roasted malt. Some smoke. Milk chocolate, toffee, coffee. Really well balanced. Love it.
M/D: A medium to full body. Velvety smooth and soft. The perfect amount of carbonation for a cask. This is like silk. So easy to drink. I have lost count how many times I have enjoyed this on cask.
One of the true treats in Texas is enjoying this on cask. Near perfect. I can not recommend this enough.

Pours with a small head into std pint glass, but maintains traditional thin head for porter.
Nose is very malty as is the initial taste. Leaves a bit of a nutty/coffee aftertaste. This is a very good slow drinking bar beer, enjoyable to the very end. It's not distributed to stores in my area yet, but I'd puck up some of this for a late night beer if it was. Good stuff.
