12 oz can poured into tulip glass.

Appearance: dark red almost brown bodied beer with almost 2 full fingers of head resulting from a hard pour. Drops down to a thin cap and thick lacing on the side of the glass.

Smell: Very chocolately malts and hint of those bready and caramel type malts of an amber ale. Very light amount of roast, but its there. Smells really nice.

Taste: Little bit of a let down, but well above average. If the beer tasted exactly like it smelled I would really like this beers flavor profile substantially more. The beer starts out malty and slightly sweet with light roast, chocolate notes, hint of caramel. Slightly nutty and mild hop bitterness that is grassy and citrusy.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with low carbonation. Creamy body and pretty drinkable as well. Not much after taste. The beer is pretty clean.

Overall: Good beer this newer CO brewery did a decent job of brewing what they were going for. Definately a hybrid of 2 different beer styles a porter and a hoppy amber ale is what I would guess them to be.

it truly is a red porter! a well done style hybridization that comes across clean drinking, light for the style, interesting enough to hold my attention, and frothy and sudsy and delicious on the feel. more of a dark amber than a traditional porter in color, but the body is there, and the rusty tan head is alive and well at two inches high from a rather mellow pour. it smells like a pretty good dose of chocolate malt and sweeter red malt, but remains rather light on the darker roasted barley, if its there, its way minimal. the yeast is my only real critique. it seems like a generic american ale kind, where a traditional english yeast would be nice to bring it more in line with the style, as well as to give it that cakey element. clean in the finish though, lacking just a little in carbonation, but i could see this kicking butt on a hand pull. overall a nice reworking of a traditional style to fit black shirts theme. not a beer i would buy six of at a time, but an enjoyable glass or two for certain.

Had this on tap at the Black Shirt Brewery in Denver. I had the barrel aged variant. Looks a little thin during the pour, but a decent head. Boozy nose with lots of vanilla. Vanilla from the barrels definitely shines through in the taste as well, with a slight booziness complimenting the roasted malts. Surpsisingly well balanced for all of the booze on the nosed but a tad thin for a porter in my opinion.

Serving type: on-tap
