3.6/5 rDev 0%
ST: I have only had this beer on draft. Typically it has been served fairly cold (like refrigerator temp). I actually prefer to let it sit for a little while and warm up a bit. I think it would be best in the 55 degree area.
AP: Thick, dark, light amount of brown head.
SM: I'll really have to come back to the "smell" portion after i've been not smoking for a little while longer. At this point, basically, yes... it does have smell, and it's good, but I can't pick up on complexities.
TA: I enjoy this porter immensely. It's more bitter than I like - but this is the beer that can eventually become my favorite barrel aged beer!
MF: Thick. The light bubbles of the light head are nice.
OV: This is so far, in my new to craft beer world, my favorite porter.

3.23/5 rDev -10.3%
Had it on tap, served in a goblet, at Mellow Mushroom in southeast Huntsville
A: Totally dark and no head whatsoever - just some thin streaks of foam across the top
S: Pleasant mix of coffee and fresh hops
T: No strong flavors - some hints of coffee
M: Not much there - some light carbonation, some mild bitterness, but just a thin-bodied beer for a porter
O: Certainly a drinkable beer, just not very memorable. Prefer a porter with a stronger or more distinctive flavor.

2.6/5 rDev -27.8%
A: Poured a nice deep brown with a 1/2 tannish cap with moderate lacing
S: A little faint. Some roasted malts with hints of bakers powder cocoa but not that charming overall
T: Light bakers cocoa powder was my initial thought backed up by some roasted malt anda light whiff of coffee and very light underlying funk. The taste lingers providing a bitter, graininess which really disappoints
M: Medium body, well carbonated, a little thin on the backend and on the palate
O: Not a creamy porter which I like. This beer needs to be cleaned up a bit.
