Poured a dark ruby brown with a nice cream-like head. Sour fruits in the aroma with figs standing out, also some bubblegum and sweet chocolate notes. The taste is rich in roasted grains, some sweet fruits and is medium bodied. This isn’t a heavy beer – It goes down pretty easy and the taste is agreeable. Leaves a pleasant sour tang in the back of the throat. A nice and drinkable porter.

Brown with reddish edges and a low light beige head which leaves decent lace. Light roasty caramel malt aroma. Light roasty flavor but dominated by caramel malt tones. Light-medium bodied, smooth and creamy.

Heard they no longer make this one...

This porter has a sweet roasted caramel aroma and a strong hint of peppermint or maybe black licorice in the flavor which is brought out with a high medium body. Unique and quite tasty.

Serving type: on-tap

Very dark with a pronounced caramel aroma. The caramel was not carried in the flavor, which was primarily coffee in nature, with a full body. Good bitter finish, and a nice example of the style.
