3.75/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a can into a shaker pint, the beer is a dark, brownish-brown color, with a solid flow of carbonation in the body, and a tall, fluffy, foamy, light tan head. Nose of rich mocha, subtle campfire smoke, highlights of peat and earth, and some bittersweet chocolate. Flavors are heavily smoked and richly sweet, with a blend of bittersweet chocolate and rich toffee. Some bitter and roasted coffee notes add layers to the palate. Smooth, light, and dry in mouth, with a chocolate and smoky aftertaste. Dry, effervesced finish, with a rich chocolate and earthy linger. Interesting take on the style.

This is an awesome porter. Full-bodied, rich, chewy, dark, nice lacing, coffee & dark chocolate, a great way to cap off an evening at the bar. I tried this not having much idea what to expect (never had a beer from Brew Bus before) and I was not at all disappointed.

12 oz can served in a snifter with a canning date of 16 Feb. 2015 on the bottom.

Excellent looking with a generous size, creamy/bubbly tan head that leaves the glass speckled.

The aroma has ample dark roasted grains with hints of hops, toffee and chocolate.

Flavor: perhaps slightly more hoppy than average, this has a mildly bitter flavor with some spiciness from the hops.

Feel: medium-full body; nicely smooth; medium carbonation.

A: Robust brown color not quite black small tight off white head

S: smells bready with roasty sweet malts some brown sugar and a little carmel

T: very nice roast and burnt sugars taste with a little coffee

M: Full for a porter it has a nice robust feel without being thick like a stout very great mouth on this one

O: This is a solid porter it hits all the right notes you are looking for in a porter it's malty, roasty, and the mouth feel is huge without being cloying. It is interesting to note the color us brownish on this versus pitch black like some

Pour is dark brown almost black with a tight creamy tan head. Nose has a bit of wet paper up front, notes of chocolate and toffee, a good bit of brown sugar and very sweet in back. Taste is less oxidized but still a bit, some richer chocolaty malt, loads of sugar and some notes of caramel and brown sugar in back. Light acrid bitterness, light body, soft palate, and gentle carbonation.

A great porter from a small fish in the brewing world! It pours dark brown with a thin khaki head. The nose brings roasty malts with a hint of chocolate and earthy, herbal hops. The taste is chocolatey with toasted oats, nuts, and toffee. I find this to be simple and delicious with a medium mouthfeel.
