Had on tap in a pint glass.
Pours a very dark brown, nearly pitch black, with a thick dark tan head. Good head retention and lacing.
Aroma of dark roast coffee and roasted malt along with some dark fruit such as plums and raisins. Pretty nice but a little on the weak side.
There is a touch of smoke in the flavor along with roasted malt and some coffee. The roast seems to go a little overboad, though, and the mouthfeel is quite chalky and watery. Just isn't put together very well.
Overall, I was really looking forward to this based on the appearance and aroma but the taste and mouthfeel kind of let me down. Just an ok beer.
Serving type: on-tap

a: dark brown ale with about 1/2 head from the tap at 41F
s: coffee, smokey malt. some chocolate. no hops detected
t: Nice balance of coffee, burn candy, burnt milk, malt and chocolate, not much smoke, hops balanced it out OK. Was not as good as many other porters i had. Some bitter aftertaste.
m: medium to thin body, decent carb, smooth. easy to drink
o: overall its decent nothing earthshaking. sure does not even compare to Sn porter on a bad day, heck SA porter is better.
on tap for 5 plus I drank a few wrote some notes and I am done.

Pours a dark brown color with an off white bubbly top. The aroma is quite mineral like, somewhat metallic, and has a faint bit of roast and chocolate. In the flavor, roasted malt, charcoal, dried fruit, minerals, and a mild but growing off flavor of tartness. A bit of piney hops and citrus, too acidic, slightly infected, not so great. Light, thin, watery feel with prickly carbonation. Like a roasted gueze, or sour porter, but unintentional. Rough, and a pretty weak porter in many ways.
