Pours a murky dark brown with a off white head. Average retention.

Roasted dark malts, some smoke and bread aromas with a burst of hops at the end. A little stale coffee is also noticeable. Smell as a whole is a little muted.

Thankfully the flavor delivers much more than the aroma with big chocolate malts and the nice porter smokeyness. Beyond the more prominent flavors there is also a welcome dark fruit component. Light hops add a bit of bite to the finish, but the flavor as a whole leans toward sweeter side. Altogether a pretty richly flavored beer.

Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and smooth with fine carbonation. Right in line with expectations.

Along with Steamboat and Double Black Diamond, one of Blackfoot River's best. A very robust, flavorful beer that would have me drinking porter much more often were I able to put this in my glass at whim. (859 characters)

Sampled a fresh pint at the Tap Room.
Deep red-brown color, with a nice thin cap of brown foam.
Slightly stronger flavored than their Scottish Ale. A good kick of hop bitterness, balanced with some sweet toasted grain. Full body, with lots of different flavors, and an aftertaste that stuck around, waiting for the next sip. Just enough chocolate taste.
"Brewed from the finest O.C.I.A. certified organic 2-row malt and organic New Zealand hops."
I tend to lean towards darker brews, so I really liked this one from Blackfoot. (531 characters)
