Served in a pint glass at tighthead.

This beer is quite robust. There is darkness to this that is quite pleasant. There is a coffee aroma to this that I love. The taste is really nice has a chocolaty taste to it that I really enjoy. The mouthfeel is really thinner than most of the porters I've tried recently, but I enjoy it. Overall it's a solid porter that I would definitely get again.

Aug 2015 brewery draft - pour dark black, typical porter. Brown foam. Still. Strong coffee nose. Burned bitter. Smooth mouthfeel, maybe too much so. Heavy bitter, all coffee. Good porter, but a little strong.

Served in a shaker pint glass at the TH tap room.

Anyone remember the Boxcar Children...? ... Anyway, this stuff pours a very dark burnt sienna topped by finger of oatmeal-tan foam. The nose comprises darkly-roasted malts, very light molasses, very light dark chocolate, and a bit of dark-roast coffee. The taste brings in more of the same, everything combining to form a very dark, roasty, robust flavor. Nice. The body is a straight medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fairly dry finish. Overall, a damn fine robust porter, probably my new favorite all-around beer from TH.
