3.88/5  rDev n/a
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Had on-tap at Otto's in State College, PA - poured into a tulip glass.

L: Pours a brown so dark it might as well be black. Minimal light makes it through giving it a bit of a mahogany glow. About 1/2" of off-white head fell quickly. Minimal lacing.

S: Roasted malts and coffee on the nose.

T/F: Definitely a porter, with a dominant roasted malt flavor balanced out with some coffee notes mixed with chocolate. Moderately carbonated and smoother/lighter than expected.

O: A pretty easy drinking porter, and an overall solid beer. One of the better Yards brews that I've had.

A- Poured a thick tan head that lasted awhile.

S- Did not like the smell, tough to get past for me. Can't put my finger on what it smalled like.

T- Despite the smell that taste is not bad. No bad after taste.

M- Feels good in your mouth, crisp.

D- Not bad at all.

i would echo pretty much all the other posters' comments. overall you should just know that this is a good, solid beer that despite its extremely dark appearance can be drunk a whole lot without feeling too full. good stuff. i have not had it in a bottle yet but i am looking forward to it.

A- Poured a nice black with a decent sized tan head that drizzled down to pretty much nothing.

S- Coffee aroma with some hints of chocolate. Roasted malts as well

T- Nothing off the wall with taste. To me it was just a standard porter but not bad. Malty flavors with that mild espresso taste

M- A little thin for me but crisp

D- Can put a couple of these down without it filling you up. I would drink it again a pretty good session beer as well

Cask conditioned on the engine made all the difference in this one. I've had it on tap, but this was way better. Room temp and better as it got warmer. Big coffee and chocolate taste and aroma, smokey malt and well balanced with the hops. The tan head started out big, then went down to about a quarter inch, but stayed that way to the bottom. Lace throughout. A good Porter to have on a blustery fall day.
