Notes from 7/2012

Pours brown with a thin cap of tan head. Lots of chocolate in the aroma and the taste. Smell also contains roasted malt and a biscuity character. Chocolate is both milk chocolate and bittersweet. Has a slight chalkiness to it, maybe cocoa-y. Also a decent creamy coffee and vanilla presence. Very tasty, better than the aroma. Medium, slick creamy mouthfeel with a roasted bitter finish. Also some subtle hopping to counter the creamy and milk chocolate.

Served on tap in a shaker glass at the brewery.

A - jett black with a 2 finger tan frothy head with great retention and excellent lacing.

S - chocolate notes, with a touch of smoke, coffee, a bit of earthy

T - Coffee forward porter with great chocolate notes and early moderately bitter hops

M - Full body, moderately carbonated, chewy and smooth.

O - I thought this was one of their better standard brews.

Growler shared by Grant – thanks! Tasted side-by-side with Nib Smuggler.

Pours black with a light brown head that leaves decent lacing.

Smells of smooth roasted malts with moderate amounts of coffee aromas. Also present are light semi-sweet chocolate aromas and hints of char.

Tastes very similar to how it smells. Robust roasted malts up front are joined quickly by smooth coffee flavors. Midway through, mildly bitter semi-sweet chocolate flavors come into play, carrying through to a moderately bitter ending. Mouthfeel is good, with solid carbonation.

Overall this is a very good beer and I see why the brewery chose it for so many treatments. Very much worth a shot.

On tap at the Funky Buddha grand opening. Newly dubbed OP Porter. Served in an oversized snifter.

Appearance - Black with a nice khaki head. Good lacing and surface wisps. Retains well.

Smell - Nice roast. Chocolate. Mild lactose, but noticeable.

Taste - Sweet up front. Roasty dark chocolate. Lactose kicks in behind it. Mild roast and hop bitterness rounds it out. Lingering lactose sweetness.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Well carbobated. Easy drinking porter.

Overall - I can't help that I don't love lactose. This does it well, though.

one of the 4 funky buddah growlers we opened, this was my personal favorite for sure.

nice dark brown pour with a good inch and a half of dark tan head that hangs on top of the glass for what seems like forever before it falls back down to earth. very solid look i have to admit. aroma is deep coffee and sweet chocolate notes that just seem to layer themselves on top of each other. smooth, sweet, and lightly bitter it coats the tongue and offers such a smooth, and easy flavor it comes across simply great. touches of light vanilla and a lightly dry and sweet finish seal the deal for me.

On tap at FBL. Poured into new castle summer tumbler
Nice deep amber brown colar - little head.
Caramel vanilla aroma.
Coffee chocolate vanilla taste. Mild and enjoyable. Really easy drinker and smooth to boot not heavy at all but very drinkable.
I'd buy again...on tap as there are better porters out there.

I had this on-tap at the brewpub, poured into a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Pours almost black with a little light coming through at the edge. There is a finger and a half of thick tan head that fades and leaves a ring at the edge. Really great lacing.

Smell: Sweet roast and malt with some coffee and dark chocolate notes.

Taste: Super smooth and very roasty, hints of smoke and dark chocolate. There is a sweetness, but it's in the background compared to the roast. The finish is slightly bitter.

Mouthfeel: The body is on the thick side of medium. This is a smooth drinker with mild carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: This is a very nice drinkable porter. Very smooth and I love the roast. Well balanced and I would love to have another.
