4.35/5  rDev +9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

I got this on-tap in Ybor. Poured black (but when held to light you can see it was a deep brown). Coffee colored lacing that slowly disapated to thin layer that stayed until the last sip.

Smell is all roasted malt's,a second inhale gave the smokiness,very feint aroma's of bitter chocolate and coffee.

Taste is pretty much the same as the smell only it get's stronger with every sip, The roasted maltiness kick's you right in the chomps until you crave more.

Mouth is silky smooth with a full body a great carbonation,didn't go flat like alot of darker brews have.

Drink is good but it is a little heavy to have a session going but easily drinkable for the occassion.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A- a deep, deep brown, with only a hint of light getting through when held to the light. Also sports a nice big creamy tan head

S- nice roasted malt aroma (mostly coffee) with some notes of alcohol sweetness

T- the same big roast notes from the aroma, but better defined. Distinct coffee and hints of chocolate.

M- nice and smooth.

O- a really, really good porter

Serving type: on-tap

First had: on tap at the brewpub in Tampa

Dark brown-black pour, with a small khaki-colored head; moderate retention and lacing. Roasty aroma, dark malts and coffee. No surprises here. Taste of dark roasty malts, cocoa powder, mild earthy hop notes. Medium body. Pretty basic, sub-homebrewy, and a bit bland overall. Sample-worthy, but nothing more (sums up about all TBBC beers).
