easily the best beer I had on my visit to phantom canyon. the pour from the cask is just sensational, with a matted black luster and a short but persistent chocolate brown head. the nose is definitely smoky, peaty like a good scotch, and refined in its roasted malt character. the taste is much more tame on the peat, and this is not a smoked beer per se. those elements take a back seat to dark roasted English barley malt, and bitter dark chocolate notes, as well as a pleasant ale yeast imparting some bready depth. feel is soft as a pillow from the ask, and the cellar temperature allows the flavors to fully develop right from the first sip. this is an expertly made beer, far better than anything I expected to encounter at phantom canyon. I wish I could say the same for their hefeweizen... this however, was a splendid twist on a porter, and a beer I would drive back to the springs to drink again.

ON tap at the brewpub. Pours dark brown with a creamy, long lasting, off-white head. Aroma is of toasted malt dark fruit, coffee, vanilla and dark chocolate. Body is full and creamy, no carbonation. Taste is toasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, coffee, dark fruit. Long bitter finish. Good porter, but I don’t like it flat.

A- Thick, very dark black with a finger of creamyy brown head, impressive

S- Slight bit of smokiness, light cocoa notes, sweetness

T- Slight roasted bitterness throughout, slightly sweet, light smokiness

M- Moderate body, cask smoothness is very enjoyable

O- I thought there was a good amount of complexity between the smokiness and roast to keep the brew interesting throughout, being served from a cask really helps the flavors come out and gives a great mouthfeel. I'll definitely ask for this again.

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Jet black body and thick, creamy off-white head. Carbonation appears to fall downward from the head while the beer settles after being poured.

Smell: Dark, roasted malts; coffee, nutty.

Taste: Gently bitter dark grains with touches of coffee and bitter chocolate. Nice smooth bitterness permeates it all, nicely balancing the malt flavors.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and creamy, very gentle on the tongue.

Overall: An outstanding hand-drawn cask ale. This has been around for a long time, and is something to look for if you are looking for a classic, English-styled porter.

First had: on tap at their brewpub

Poured a dark walnut brown, with a thin tan head. Roasted malts in the aroma, coffee notes, and just a bit medicinal. Dark malts in the taste as well, coffee and cocoa, with a little peat in the background, almost unnoticeable (were it not for the name I probably wouldn't have known). A bit watery for the style, but not bad. Medium body, and quite drinkable.
