On tap at the wonderful Peg's Cantina in Gulfport. Served in a snifter at slightly lower than room temperature, as it should be.
A - Pours an fairly opaque dark brown, with some faint auburn highlights when held up to the sun. Only a thin cap of mocha-colored head on the pour, which doesn't really hang around long. No lacing to speak of.
S - Cocoa, roast, and a cereal-like quality, like Cheerios. Where some porters have an earthiness, this one has more of an oat aroma coupled with some smokiness, which is is a pleasant combination.
T - Flavors start somewhere between dark and milk chocolate lead off, with a nice dark-roasty, coffee-like element. There's some hoppiness, which helps to keep it from being dominated by the roast. Little to no alcohol at all. The finish is fairly short but is a mix of sweetness and toast.
M - Thick and creamy at first, with a full body. It edges closer to watery toward the finish.
O - It's a pretty nice execution of a pretty pedestrian style. It's good but doesn't really have an element that sets it apart from the pack. Probably the least memorable beer of my latest visit -- not a knock on this beer but there are some great offerings at Peg's.

Review from notes at Peg's Cantina on 9/10/11.
Draft poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: Poured a cola brown with a 1 finger dark tan head. Decent lacing.
Smell: Chocolate and roasted malt. A little subdued.
Taste: Milk chocolate with roasted malt up front followed by coffee in the middle before ending with a toasty finish. Aftertaste is mildly bitter.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and creamy with a decent amount of carbonation.
Drinkability: Good drinkability. Goes down smooth.
Overall: Very good beer overall. Another solid offering from Peg's Cantina. Give it a try if you get the chance.

Draft at Pegs... had to stop by. Reviewed on ky phone, so it is shortened.
Pours a nice dark brown with a little ring of head.
Nose is smokey and roasted malty...
Taste follows... a bit smokey with a nice roasted flavor too.
A bit on the thinner side.... but good none the less.

On-tap at Peg's
A - It pours a sturdy and opaque brown and is capped with a respectable deep tan head, depositing rings of lace as the glass empties.
S - The nose is mostly just roast barley. As I get deeper into it, I get some cocoa and coffee and perhaps a bit of woody astringency shows up.
T - The taste is much akin to the nose. It tastes quite good, but it hard to quantify (as many porters are.) There is a significant amount of roast barley in the flavor and a generous addition of pungently woody hops with undertones of coffee, chicory, and peat. The brew does not come of as over-the-top hoppy, but it is quite sharp and has very little untempered sweetness.
M - Truly medium in body, perfectly weighted and carbonated for the flavor, feel and aroma to mesh seamlessly; very enhancing.
O - This beer is very solid; it is not an attempt to push any boundary, it is more like a good pub brew.

growler poured in to a guiness glass.
Pours a dark brown with a bubbly tan head.
Mildly sweet smell with a roasty finish.
Taste is a somewhat dry, roasty classic porter.
Mouthfeel is a little thin, but not for a drinkable porter.
A very nice, balanced porter.

A: it was very dark, granted the atmosphere wasn't well lit but for porters I didn't expect to be able to see much in the way of colors. It came with a dark mocha colored head.
S: my nose wasn't working so well today but I got some sweetness and roasty smokiness. It smelled like a porter should.
T: like the smell it had a nice sweetness and roasted coffee flavor. A mellow smokiness as well. Its a well balanced beer not to bold but just right in flavor.
MF: like I said a very balanced beer. It had a medium mouth feel. It didn't stay in my mouth too long but just enough to let the flavors linger. Minimal bitterness offset by the sweetness.
O: its a good beer, I'm not huge on porters but this is a good one. Plus with a name like The Dude, how can you not want to try it.
The Dude abides.

Had this on-tap at Peg's.
Served in a pint.
A: There was some translucence are the edges of this dark brew, but nothing to write home about. The head was mild, but oh so icky and sticky!
S: Very roasty, with a good bit of BBQ pork and brown sugar. On second thought, make that baked beans.
T: This was lighter than I was expecting, but infinitely gulpable. Much the same as the smell, but more toasty rather than roasty.
M: Bitter on the end, but fairly low on the sugar end. Nice balance between the intense ingredients along with the carbonation bill.
O: I'd call this one a "summer porter" through and through. I'd pop a growler of this in a heartbeat.

A: single finger rapidly dissipating light brown head. Very black.
S: smokey and chocolatey
T: smokey dominance. Not very complex or special compared to others. A fairly standard porter taste.
M: full body and moderate carbonation.
Overall: This was a typical porter. A lot of brewers tend to be safe with these in order to keep the standard beer drinker pleased.
