I am not a big fan of the can beer. It was a little rough of the edges. I am porter fan but this had a little bit of a coating on the mouth. We were doing a tour of the east coast and this was kinda of a road block on the tour. DC beer that was to be the best of the batch, it was a little rough.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a mug. Pours pitch black with a nice brown head. Smells of coffee, chocolate, and very slight fruitiness. Tastes of slight berries with a very strong coffee. Beer is full bodied lighter carbonated but very drinkable. Overall, a very good beer.

4.16/5 rDev +7.8%
A: dark, dark brown to black, nice giy edge head with significant lacing.
S: roasted grain notes and coffee, coming through more with warmth
T: dark roasted grains, some medium body coffee, just on the bitter side of a balance against sweetness. The middle taste I get a little oat flavor. The end taste is a bit of generic green (shrub-like) hops taste that lightly dries the mouth.
M: besides the light drying, which I like better than a hop-bomb ending in porters, the overall feel is just a tad weak. The taste does hit all parts of the mouth, though, so I'm between a notch higher and what I gave it.
O: I think to me it's one of the best porters I've had as far as enjoyment. Roasted malt characters backed by a light, dry bittering effect in the back, that's what I enjoy. This one is also right I the edge of being a stout, maybe that helps.

Poured from 12oz can into a dimpled mug.
Appearance: deep, rich brown hue, which lets no light through. Head is a thick finger of creamy tan foam with OK retention and not much in the way of lace.
Smell: slightly sweet malty aroma with a good chocolate character. It's got a nice roastiness, but not a big astringency, which I like. I'm a fan!
Taste: much roastier than the aroma with a little bit of burnt malt right up front. This subsides into a more balanced, but still quite roasty, porter profile. Bitterness is a little high, with hop character a little bit vegetal. Not bad; definitely robust.
Mouthfeel: medium body with a good carbonation and a decent creaminess.
Overall: I find this beer quite drinkable indeed. I wouldn't mind if it were available here on the West coast.
