Found at The Beer Bar in Manhattan and served in a large chalice this porter has a solid black brown appearance with a respectable light chocolate colored thin layer of foam and excellent lacing. The aroma suggests a boozy chocolate malt with a hint of grassy hop. The flavor brings much more of a charcoal grass blend and very little chocolate. It seems to have an odd swampiness to it, a bit like stagnant water, that isn't wowing me but it generally overcomes this to provide an overall okay taste. The grassy hop slides into a sort of herbal idea in conjunction with the alligator water element. The booziness from the aroma also dissipates as you adjust to the flavor of this medium bodied brew with a midland, slightly resinous feel. As porters go I can't help but wish this had a bit more malt centric flavors and the tainted water thing does it no favors. If the off flavor is intended, then I'd have to say, don't waste your time. But if it was just a bad line or something, this might have potential. It may be an overhopped outcome but as one who worships hop indulgence, I have to doubt that. I'm going to assume something was a bit off in this first sample but it makes it hard to judge.
