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

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).

Dark brown, almost black with two finger tan head, nice retention, and sea foam lacing.

The aroma is balanced with roasted malts, coffee and dark chocolate, dark sugars, molasis and brown sugar with vanilla hints and earthy notes.

The flavor is nicely balanced with coffee and chocolate notes, brown sugar and a nice bittering balance.

Prickly, medium bodied, and smooth. Slightly overcarbonated for the style.

Overall, very easy drinking, sessionable porter
