Served on tap in a pint glass.

Appears as close to black as you can get. About 3/4 inch head that laces nicely throughout the drink.

Smells of coffee, pecans and dark chocolate.

First taste is impressive. Goes through the gamut of chocolate, coffee and nuttiness. Hops accentuate all the characters and balance well with a good bit of malts. Best porter I've tried, leaves room for more. Only minus is an average mouthfeel, which may not be a minus for some. Wonderful beer!

Bought in a 32 oz growler from Central Market in Fort Worth, Texas. Poured into a glass in Oklahoma one day after purchase.

Pours a thick dark brown almost black with a brown head. Excellent malty aroma with hints of maple and chocolate.

Flavor is outstanding. Dark chocolate, toasted grain, caramel, licorice, just a little bit sweet at first with a dry finish. Slight hops in the background.

Nice medium-full mouthfeel. Very smooth.

Overall, I wish they bottled this beer. It is very good.

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.
