Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine May 2007.
Coming from the self-proclaimed "Dark Beer Special- ists," this robust Porter has an addition of oats in the mash to smooth it out. They have also been known to sing softly to their yeast during fermentation. Whatever floats their duck.
Two fingers of a tight, tiny-bubbled head leaves a trail of tan lace down the glass after every sip. Smells of chocolaty roasted malt with yeast and a light fruitiness in the back. Very smooth in a dense medium body; creamy slick mouthfeel makes you go for another sip right away. Flavors of baker's chocolate, French Roast coffee and faint charcoal. Acrid, ghost-like twang and yeast flash past the taste buds. Dry, bready maltiness in the middle with a kiss of hop bitterness; both flavors end up overshadowed by a blanket of roasted grain in the drying finish.
A tasty Porter, with a good showing of balance and a sound, roasted flavor throughout. Above average for sure--largely because of its drinkability. A plate of pulled pork with a sweet molasses sauce and some black beans and rice would do well with this beer.
