Pours black with a tan head of fairly limited duration. Smell is of burnt bread and some faint coffee. The taste is nicely balanced with elements of roasted malts, coffee and with a sweet undertone. Smooth mouthfeel in an overall medium body. A very nice porter.

DATE: February 4, 2017... OCCASION: watching Captain America with the fam while basking in the glow of our Quiz Bowl team's strong showing... GLASSWARE: Howard's Pub pint... a jet black body upholds a nearly single-finger brown head... creamy and thick, almost Guinness-like in its consistency... for peat's sake, what a nice aroma for a winter's night... smoky too, with a discernibly soft chocolate scent... a hazy drizzle is left behind as the glass drains... a classic cola finish ends a creamy, smooth body... the flavor profile is peat, slight smoke, and vanilla... almost singular in its effect--kind of like its name!--but excellent in what it does... the chocolate makes this a dessertif, but the overall effect is a delicious, easy sipping porter that provokes a second....

Yum! A nice cola color on the pour. The smell is coffee , vanilla, chocolate ,roasted mats and some nuttiness as well as some sweetness. The taste follows the smell. This is a very good American porter. The alcohol is well hidden but then again it's only 5.8. This is a very nice medium body porter. The Thirsty Dog Leg Humper is very well balanced and deserves some love.

Pours a dark brown color with khaki colored head. Coffee, roasted malts, and chocolate on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with an over abundance of roast.

Oh, how these are good in the morning. I secured this beer Smokey and the Bandit style from Toledo.

Pours like a black and tan. Great malty, full bodied aroma with a matching taste of strong coffee, cocoa and even a little Mexican vanilla snuck in there. There is also a burnt marshmallow smell and flavor as well but that could be the vanilla and coffee talking to you.

Great recommendation from a Toledo, OH liquor store.
