Poured into pint glass from tap at duclaw in Bowie. Pours a deep brown with ruby wine color hue. No head at all. Meh
Smell is roasted chocolate malts which dominate. This carries over to the flavor. Dominating sweet roasted chocolate malt. It does have a nice bitter finish though. Its a solid porter. Not amazing but not bad.

Draft offering served in a standard pint glass. The brew appears black in color with a mocha head. A thin film of bubbles maintains across the top and rises with an aggitating swirl.
The smell is dark and roasted grain with an essence of cocoa and unsweetened chocolate. Some citris coffee bean element is present that smells more abundant than hops which i have no complaints about.
The taste is roasty with citrus hops and just like the aroma hinted, a bit of citrus coffee bean element. Some chocolate and coffee lasts into the aftertaste mixed with some mineral and herbal inclusion that is mildly reminescent of melon-like yeast aspect.
This is a medium to light bodied brew. It is easily approachable and light but there is some dirty yeast/herbal inclusion almost vegetative that I just didnt care for. Its not terrible by any stretch but its strange enough that im not interested in paying to have it again.

A poured with a small head of tan foam on a black body, good retention and lace.
S roast malt, light coffee and some smoke.
T sweet malt up front with a bit of coffee. Some toffee in the middle and a toasty, dry finish.
M medium light body, moderate carbonation, and a bone dry finish.
D not bad, it is definitely a porter rather than a stout,but not overly complex.

Half finger dark tan head on a clear but dark brown body. Excellent lacing. Aroma is full of coffee and espresso with a subtle dark fruit sweetness. Flavor follows nicely with Coffee, roasted malts and like dark chocolate moving to a light cherry and toffee sweet finish. Semi dry finish with light to moderate carbonation and typical thin porter body. Very flavorful compared to do many porters out there. A must try IMO.
