4.19/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

Poured from 12oz can into a miniature snifter glass.

Look: Dark brownish tint black with a tan head and good retention/lacing.

Smell: chocolate, brownie, a bit of a coffee roast. Little to no hop presence in the nose, which I prefer on a porter.

Taste: Sweet caramel. Yeasty bread, smooth roast with hints of cocoa and coffee. small licorice like bitterness in the back end with a dark fruit like raisins in the finish. Nice balance and good flavor profile.

Feel: Heavy bodied, robust! light roast bitterness lingering on my tongue.

Overall: Good robust porter. Id have it again.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours wonderfully thick for a porter. Really is a blackish tone of a body. Head is a thick creamy inch and a half of biscuity brown head. Head has nice retention and leaves solid waves of lace as it fades. Nose is just what the name suggests, robust. Rich and grainy with a nice amount of coffee and toasted dark malts in the aroma. With first sip I am a bit let down by how the robustness that was promised by the nose doesn't transpire completely into the flavor. It is not bad at all, but it is not as big as I was expecting. Dry and crisp for a porter. Shortly roasted malts paint the tongue with coco and even background hops. As I drink I tend to appreciate this beer more. This is a solid porter overall. I have been nothing but impressed with this brewery overall.

Picked up a couple 12oz cans in a trade with awdturboiv. Poured into a standard shaker pint glass.

Pours viscous black with brown edges when held to the light, a fatty tan head, good retention with impressive lacing. Aroma is roasty and malty - coffee and dark chocolate, with some faint hop aroma (wish it were dry hopped a bit more to be honest). Flavor follows aroma with a big roasty malt bill, black licorice, tobacco, some sweetness, and what the aroma may have lacked in dry hopping, the flavor more than makes up for, staying true to the 18th Street style. Mouthfeel is silky smooth and medium-bodied, carbonation is mellow and appropriate for the style. A real working class ale - hearty, robust, flavorful - the perfect beer to wash away the wear and tear of a day's hard work.
