Growler thanks to largadeer.

Very dark brown in color with a one-finger tan head and some lacing.

Roasty and coffeeish aroma with some piney hop notes.

The flavor is pretty nice, with roast and coffee, slight dark fruits, and piney hops but not in excess. Some nutty flavors.

Medium-bodied, fairly dry yet smooth on the mouthfeel. Solid stuff.

Serving type: growler

On tap at the joint itself - Alpine Beer Company.

Has a dark, yet thin-ish black appearance. We'll move on...

Aroma is good like Bar Rafaeli sipping her morning coffee - I can get used to this.

Taste meets you well like Bar in her nighty after she ate a chocolate soufflé... Yes, I think I will kiss you goodnight.

Not with the best of the best, but good.

Yep!

Served on-draught at Alpine's pub into a 5 oz sampler. Reviewed from notes taken in January 2013.

A: Pours a half finger head of nice cream and thickness, but poor retention. Body colour is a dark caramel-black. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Sm: Caramel, dark malts, buried roast, and residual sweetness. A moderate strength aroma.

T: Dark malts, caramel, and buried light roast. Very balanced and enjoyable. Flavourful and tasty. I quite like it. Complex yet pleasant to drink.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Carbonation is perfect. Great thickness and presence on the palate.

Dr: Very drinkable. A quality porter; I quite like it. Yet another solid beer from Alpine. I'd definitely get it again.
