Pours a deep ruby tinted brown with a tight one finger mocha colored head that was gone quite fast.Aromas of unsweetened chocolate and raw earthy nut with a touch of cookie dough.A porter on the drier side quite woody and earthy with big unsweetened cocoa flavors only a tad sweet.A nice smooth mouthfeel lends to the drinkabiltity along with its dryness,I think a very solid porter and likely food friendly to boot.

On-tap at the brewery.

Pours one shade from black with a half-finger tan head. The head recedes into a wispy layer on top leaving decent lacing.

Smells of smooth roasted malts with moderate amounts of dark chocolate. Hints of herbal hops are present and intensify slightly as the beer warms.

Tastes similar to how it smells. Robust roasted malt flavors with hints of char kick things off before being tempered by slightly sweeter semi-sweet chocolate flavors. Hints of earthy hops dry things out a bit near the end of the sip, carrying through to a moderately bitter ending.

Mouthfeel is good. It's got a nice thickness with solid carbonation.

Drinkability is also good. I finished my glass without a problem and could have another.

Overall I enjoyed this beer, a solid porter without any frills. This isn't quite in the upper tier but it's a good beer that's worth a shot.

Black as night with a rich tan colored head that reached a height of at least two inches before settling down to a respectable inch of head that did not go away. Lots of chocolate and coffee leading the way here. Hints of molasses as well. Huge flavor here, maybe the best tasting porter I have come across. Lots of cocoa and chocolate, rich, huge flavor with a smooth creaminess that was second to none in my eyes. Really fantastic balance here as the chocolate really starts to come out as it warms. Lots of flavor here with a ton of mellow notes

appearance: dark mahogany with some cola highlights. pretty substantial head with big bubbles.
smell: no rough burnt edges. mellow roastiness with some chocolate and smoke.
taste: again, very smooth. No harsh burnt edge at all (and that edge can be very nice in a porter but i like this too).
overall: If I had to pick one over the other give me big, rich and in your face, but this is a nice congenial quaffer.

Pours a deep brownish black with ruby highlights. A light tan head forms and quickly recedes into the brew. The smell is of chocolate and roasted malts, with a touch of hops. The taste is very malty. Lots of chocolate and coffee notes. A hint of hops leads the finish. The mouthfeel is somewhat slick and leaves the coffee and mocha notes slowly disappearing from the roof of the mouth. A very tasty brew, and very easy drinking.
