This bottle seems to be off based on the draft reviews.

I got tons of carbonation, the foam was volcanic in my glass. Very thin tasting porter, and a bit of a funk taste. The Night shift crew said not to expect funk in this beer (via Twitter), but I am guessing a few bottles got infected.

I bought my bottle at Julios two weeks ago, and its been in the fridge since then.

A: Opaque, deep brown with limited head and almost no lace.

S: Rich, chocolatey smell. Almost an espresso or coffee type scent.

T: Chocolate, honey, coffee. Taste is excellent. There is a citrusy undertone to the porter which follows.

M: Just the right amount of carbonation and drinkability. Surprisingly light.

O: Unbelievably drinkable porter. Night shift refers to it as a "summer porter". I typically shy away from porters and stouts during the summer months, but this is one I'll be sure to go back for.

Bottled 9/19/14. 5.9% ABV.

A: Pours a nice deep dark brown. Tall, frothy light brown head. Great head retention. Moderate, splotchy lacing.

S: Very floral and somewhat herbal initially. Lightly peppery and then you finally get some roasted malt. Smells like burnt toast. Black pepper again?

T: Much more peppery (black pepper) in the flavor. Lots of it up front with citrus and herbal spiciness. Lightly earthy with a bunch of caramel in the middle. Then comes the burnt bread. Charred toast, very distinctive.

M: Medium bodied and very smooth. Lightly spicy and charry.

O: Interesting porter. It says hoppy porter which immediately makes me think it's more like a black IPA but it's not. It's hoppy but only mildly so. Nice spiciness and hoppiness that accents the toasted/roasted malt. Pretty simple otherwise and straightforward.
