An interesting take on the porter. The appearance was a nice dark brown with a coffee colored head that stuck around for a bit. The smell was very nutty with some citrus in the nose. The taste was a very earthy with hints of walnuts and peanuts, but also some interesting sweetness, almost banana flavors. I thought the complex flavors paired very nicely with one another. The only thing I didn't care for was how thin the beer was. Overall I liked it and would recommend to porter lovers.

a solid B of a porter here from dc brau, who keeps randomly showing up in colorado with no rhyme or reason or consistency. this porter is quite dark in color, bakers chocolate tone, but with excessive carbonation thats unflattering to most porters. huge roasted barley notes to this with very little else. i get some coffee in the smell as well as in the finish, and perhaps a light cocoa appearance, but this is a rather one dimensional brew. this is one of those breweries we get excited about because its new to our market, but one that has really yet to impress me with anything. this is a well made porter on all counts, but is definitely lost in the crowd. nice full body to it, but the carbonation level is way too high, especially or the style, and it feels like a soda. there is a great deal of bitterness from the grain too, maybe more than necessary. this beer is in need of some refinement, a six pack would be a chore for me, but its nice to see some new breweries coming into the colorado market these days, and i welcome them all.

From the can and into the rather large snifter.
Lighter weight pour than expected, effervescent, faint carbonation present - thick, mocha head over an inch plus - Almost sugary, hickory, slight almandine aroma.
My first taste was cocoa, small amount of sea salt, creamy mouth feel and taste, not too heavy or syrupy. The middle of the palette is typical caramel hops and that gives way to the expected coffee bitterness, still cafe au lait, the slight bubbling carries the butteriness through to cut hard acidic earthy bitter taste short.Lacing is a little chunky, but I drank it so quickly, not entirely certain it had tie to set up.
*The light carbonation was different but I really enjoyed the effect it had on the brew overall.

My best friend had been crowing about this local brew for weeks and I have to admit I'm excited about it as well. Beautifully made beer that I plan on sharing with other beer geeks.
