wow! finally got a six pack of this & i love it!
tastes overall more like a stout than a porter, but whatever...
HST & Ralph Steadman & Flying Dog will all three,always be cool in my book!
this was not available in indiana for some reason-i wrote to FD & asked why because alot of their other beers are,but i got no real good answer...for no good reason.
my ma found it for me in california on a trip out there & brought it back...thanks ma!

I like this brewer and their Oyster Stout is a great session stout.

Perfect last beer of the evening, and great with chocolate, cheesecake, dessert. I reached for a chocolate dunker as soon as I tasted, but not great for waistline!

A: Good looking, Black, tan head, quick to settle, abundant lace. 4
S: Big aroma of coffee, caramel, chocolate - and perhaps brandy. Definite sweetness outweighing a slight hoppy finish.
T: Dessert like with smoked flavors, mostly full flavored, sweet profile and a nice dry, long smokey finish. Definitely opens up as it warms, and definitely the last beer of the night.
M: Rich and creamy, very warming, long tickle.

D - This one started mid-pack but over a long session with it, I grew to find it outstanding.
