look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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 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.

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.

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: 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.

On tap at Peg's 17 Jul 2010.

Very dark brown with reddish highlights. Lightly carbonated. Small light brown head. Smells quite roasty, slightly smoky. Flavor follows, roasty, coffee, somewhat smoky. Bittersweet chocolate through middle and finish. Medium to light body. Moderate ethanol.

Dry and chocolatey.

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.

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.
