The best porter I've tried and one of the best beers I've had. Tried on tap at Twin Peaks in Irving TX and it was so good I had to have another. An exceptional brew.

Good coffee and chocolate base all the way through the finish. Very good porter.

Not sure if I keep trying too many beers at once but I didn't like this beer at all and I like porters. Was just blah and uneventful. Kinda bitter and bland.

Made the mistake of trying this right after a stout which made it seem almost too light. But the quality was obvious.
