4.25/5  rDev +5.2%

On both cask and draught at Victory's brewpub.

Poured a slightly cloudy brown with 1 finger of creamy off-white head. Nice lacing. Smells of chocolate, coffee, and nuts. Tastes of roasted malt, nuts, and baking chocolate followed by some molasses sweetness and then a bitter coffee and dry grass finish. Medium in body, smooth with great roasty feel and a nice dry finish. A very sessionable porter from Victory, great for the dark beer lovers.

Served as a cloudy dark tan beer that slowly became darker as the head resolved. Beautiful.

Smell has strong notes of roasted malt, coffee, and bitter chcolate.

Tastes has in strong on coffee and roasted malt. Not much sweetness. A strong hop dryness emerges at the ending.

Leaves a profound dry sensation at the finish.

Very flavorful, very esy to drink. Another winner from Victory.

3.95/5  rDev -2.2%

On cask at Victory brewpub on 9/21/08.

A - Deep brown with burgundy highlights and one-and-a-half finger creamy alabaster head that transformed into a patchy film and left some sparse lacing.

S - Prevalent coffee aroma with hints of dark chocolate, roasted malt and mild alcohol. Some dark fruit is also in the mix.

T - Bold coffee notes and, to a lesser degree, chocolate. Malt is big on roasted flavor with some graininess and bread. Hops emerge in the backend with a leafy, earthy tinge. Finishs with roastd malt and some chocolate sweetness.

M - Medium body that's a little thin and watery overall. Finish imparts a bit of earthy bitterness on the palate.

D - Solid cask porter with lots of flavor. A little thin in the mouthfeel, but very flavorful and drinkable overall.
