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.

Served on tap at the Oak Park Micro Brew Review. Pours a blackish brown with minimal head and visually matches style. The features heavy smoke and robust roasted barley. Mice aromatic roasted notes here with some chocolate and oats to round things out. Taste is smokey as well with a very mild malt sweetness. Lots of flavor here with a dry and roasted finish. Mouthfeel is medium with somewhat high carbonation for the style. Overall, a nice robust porter with plenty of flavor and a high level of drinkability.
