Our take on an American robust porter. Dark, thick, chewy, chocolaty, and of course, generously hopped.

Bottle says to drink within ninety days of 23 September 2014, so this stuff has got to be pretty fresh. Beer consumed and review on 27 October 2014.

Edit- after reading other reviews, my palate, or the bottle, was off. I didn't get the maltiness and light carbonation others note. So take this review with that in mind...

Pours a wonderful, solid, super-dark chocolate brown. This beer seems to absorb light. Finger and a half head at pour. Foam settles out pretty quickly, but a thin layer of foam remains thereafter. As you drink,a sheet of tiny bubbles follows the beer level as you tilt the glass toward and away from your mouth. Surprisingly enjoyable to watch as you sip. Some lacing.

Maybe my nose has taken the night off, but I can barely smell this beer at all. At least it doesn't smell bad. Hopefully this is the way it's supposed to be, because if my nose is this off then my taste must be a little skewed, too.

Taste is earthy, salty. Hops are there, but not overpoweringly so. Not a lot going on malt-wise. Tasty enough, though. Certainly no complaints.

Fantastic mouthfeel. Silky, slightly creamy aspect makes itself known after an initial blast of carbonation-feel and hops. Funny, but for a beer that carries this much carbonation impact it ought to bubble like a soda; but the dense brown color doesn't allow you to see into it to see the bubbles!

Very enjoyable. The good citizen aspect of the company adds to the enjoyment as well, for me at least.

500ml bottle purchased at the Drinkery in Derry, New Hampshire. Dark black, good head. Aroma was dark malts, only the slightest hint of chocolate. Flavor was much the same and I must say I was a little let down after being so impressed by Lunch. Oh well, glad to have tried this one.
