Very smooth for a porter. One of the best ones I've tried. I'm starting to really like the beers from this brewery. I havnt had one yet I didn't like. Anyone who enjoys dark beer will probably really like this one.

The only time you'll hear me gladly say give me VD!! Seriously though, this is an impeccable complex dry beer that is pleasure to drink!

On tap at Tony's Darts Away in Burbank, CA.

Pours an almost opaque super dark crimson-brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. A foamy lattice of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and char aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, char, and smoke flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with straightforward but solid roast and cocoa characteristics all around.

Serving type: on tap.

Pours heavy and dark, with a slight reddish hue. Brown foam that laces the glass. Smells like your typical porter: coffee, chocolate, malt... The taste is a lot like it smells, but the avocado honey stands out more than the chocolate. The aftertaste has quite a bite though, so I'm not sure I'd drink this regularly, but it's a worthy, flavorful effort from this Brewery. Still, I prefer their Six Killer Stout to this.

Poured into my Alaskan 25 year tulip glass, not sure when it was bottled. Pours pitch black with a two inch brown head, that slowly settles into a thick layer of foam and covers the sides with thick lace. Smell is roasted expresso, vanilla, honey, some tobacco, little smoke, and molasses. Taste is really complex, everything from the nose, roasted expresso is the main event. The body is medium large, perfect amount of life, on the dry side, and hard to sip because it is complex and delicious. I am impressed and depressed! Beer on the wall was supposed to send 2 and either they ran out or forgot to put in the second:(
