Had on tap at Kuhnhenn Brewery in Warren. Pours nearly jet black, silky and sleek looking with a small, khaki-colored head. The nose is heavy on this one and very pleasing, giving off a huge roasted aromas; roasted malts, char, and light smoke. It hits the palate a little thinner than expected, but still pretty silky and smooth overall. Huge roasted taste covers all corners of the mouth as an intense toasted flavor comes alive. Nice, campfire-like roastiness with a light hint of smoke and charcoal to really send it home. Some sweetness comes into play about halfway through in the form of ripe, red grapes and red apple skins. As this one warms, I start picking up some notes of woodiness as well. Medium carbonation, thin-medium body, silky, but a little more thin than I was expecting based on the style and the appearance.

Very nice porter. Easily drinkable with a nice roasted, campfire profile. Light sweetness brings things around to balance out the slight bitterness from the smoke and char. Hops are hidden, but I don't miss them too much, here.

On tap at Tørst.

Pours a red-tinged dark brown colour. Head is beige, densely bubbled and retains thin crown with gorgeous swathes of lacing. Pretty amazing.

Chocolatey nose, lots of sweet caramel on there as well. Burnt sugar, toffee, touch of vanilla. Mild, bit subtle, but what's there is nice.

Taste is bit more roasty and meaty (not literally). Chocolate still dominant but with some dry roasted espresso, pepper and a hint of mild dried chilli. Manages to incorporate dry notes into an overall gently sweet palate. Very enjoyable.

Good body, feels it might be thin but then develops a good presence, finishes dry.

Good American porter. Sweet, dry and spicy all held in good balance. Honestly can't wait until my next chance to try more from this brewery, I guess in many, many years' time.
