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. (588 characters)
