This pours a roasty black-brown in color with light foam. There’s a light roast aroma to it with some hoppiness. It has a great roasty flavor to it that becomes more pronounced as it warms, followed by a roasty and bitter piney hop finish. There’s a lightly sweet molasses undertone to it that balances the flavors. It’s not heavy but it stays sharp and crisp throughout. Makes for a good wintery beer.

On tap at the brewpub.

The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is heavy on the burnt malt and chocolate. The flavor is more of the same. The predominant flavor is a mix of heavily charred/burnt malt with some chocolate and roasted malt mixed in. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A nice American porter.

A: Pours a dark brown, nearly black color. A one finger tan head rises, and recedes in a minute. Light lace.
S: Roasted malt. Chocolate, and coffee. The coffee is a little acrid, but not bad.
T: Roasted malt again. Chocolate, and coffee. Bitter and slightly acrid.
M/D: A medium to full body. Creamy and smooth. I finished my pint without a problem, but one is enough in a sitting.

A really standard stout. Not bad, but nothing really to recommend either.
