First had: on tap at Cigar City, Tampa, FL
Dark brown-black pour, topped with a small tan head that receded to a wispy layer, and left a bit of lacing on the glass. Smell was that of a basic porter, roasty dark malts, light notes of coffee and unsweetened chocolate. Taste was about the same, dark malts, coffee, maybe just a touch of unsweetened chocolate, and some burnt caramel. Medium body and carbonation. An okay porter, nothing really memorable.

Being from New England (w/ lots of great micro-brews), my brother proudly took me to Cigar City Brewing in Tampa Florida. And I must say I was very impressed with both the quality and the number of excellent craft-brews on tap. The organization is very well run, and I fully expect to find their beers in the New England region in the near future ( I can see them expanding nationally).
I started with a taster rack of Jai Alai (IPA), Resonator Double Bock, El Lector English Style Dark Ale, and the Puppy Breath Porter. All were excellent.
Had the Puppy's Breath in a small 4oz tasting glass.
Compared to the beers in the rack, with was definitely the darkest. Very dark, black, with no translucency
Strong coffee notes
strong coffee notes. very complex. Nice burnt notes to the hops. Surprised that it was 8% ABV. No sense of high alcohol
heavy bodied beer. leaning more toward a stout. Nice Effervescence.
Excellent Porter. Highly recommended.

On tap at House of Beer in Gainesville. Pours dark opaque brown with minimal head. Smell of huge coffee here with significant chocolate, earthy and sweet all in one. Heavy coffee flavor with chocolate finish, the flavor is incredible bordering on semisweet chocolate syrup, with the coffee more subdued than the palate . Medium heavy mouthfeel. Exceptionally creamy. Yum.
