look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12oz bottle poured into Founders snifter.

A- Pours an opaque dark black with a quarter finger of beige head that recedes fairly fast and leaves some light lacing. Not a ton of carbonation.

S- Light chocolate, some hops, light roasted malts, not overly aromatic.

T- Light bitter chocolate, some light hops, light roasted malts, not overly flavorful, finishes with light chocolate and hoppy presence.

M- Medium bodied, not a ton of carbonation, easy drinking. Decent feel, but could use a bit more carbonation.

O- I wasn't overly impressed by this beer. It was easily drinkable, but there definitely wasn't anything special about it and there are many other porters I'd rather drink. If you live next to the brewery I'd try it out, but I wouldn't recommend going out of your way to obtain it.

This beer pours out as a deep looking black color, it's got a thick looking tan head in top with a decent retention and lacing. The smell of the beer has a good balance of roasted chocolatey malts as well as some hoppy aromas as well. The taste has a solid bitterness to it from start to finish. There is the bitter coffee and chocolate notes up front that fade into the subtle hop bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel of the beer is smooth, nicely carbonated and rather easy to drink. Overall I found it to be a pretty solid beer. Lookin forward to drinking a few more over time.

X-Ray on tap at Pony, served on their 8-oz glass.

Appearance: looks like an Imperial stout, super black, no head but great coffee-colored lacing.

Smell: Coffee, leather, liquorice, cola/cubalibre, roastiness. Petroleum and coal. Humidor full of cigars, cedar chest.

Taste: Smooth like a mellowed whiskey, far from the intensity of the nose. Sweet touches here and there, decaf coffee, gently-licked decoy. Chocolate, tad of hops at the end. Faraway notes of vanilla.

Mouthfeel: Creamy, smooth, well-balanced. Spicy, peppery finish. Great body for the low ABV.

Overall: Great porter, almost like a big stout. Drinkable and fully flavored.

On-tap at Pony Bar Hell's Kitchen, New York, NY

A: The beer is essentially jet black in color-traces of amber are visible near the edges of the glass when it is held up to the light. It poured with a thin white head and patches of bubbles down the sides of the glass.
S: There are moderate aromas of chocolate malts in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste is dominated by flavors of bittersweet chocolate and has a very slight amount of lingering bitterness. There are some hints of roasted malts.
M: It feels a bit shy of medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The beer is easy to drink, very flavorful and has no traces of alcohol in the taste.
