Presentation: 1 pint can, served in a Samuel Adams pint glass.

Appearance: It's pure black, no light shines through. It develops a tan colored, two finger head and leaves no lacing.

Smell: It smells mainly of dark roasted malt with some notes of fresh ground coffee.

Taste: It tastes great! There's notes of dark chocolate, dark roast coffee and the right amount of malt sweetness to tie it all together.

Mouthfeel: It's smooth, creamy and medium bodied; albeit a bit on the light side.

Overall: A good beer, but there's nothing groundbreaking or exceptional about it. Fans of the style will appreciate it but it doesn't have much to offer beyond that.

This beer has a nice pour with a decent amount of head. The smell is good but not overwhelming. It tastes smooth with a hint of chocolate but not overly sweet like some chocolate porters. If you like porters you should definitely give this one a try.

12oz can, drink by 08/19/17
A - cola colored ale with a frothy tan head
S - brown sugar, caramel, toffee, herbal hops, chocolate
T - notes of chocolate, vanilla, brown sugar, toffee, and caramel along with herbal, earthy hops
M - medium body, very creamy, finishes modestly bitter
O - good porter here. I couldn't help but reminisce about Tallgrass Buffalo Sweat while drinking this. There are some similarities between the two - maybe it's the house ale yeast. Either way, I would drink this again, but probably wouldn't seek it out or go oit of my way to find it.

Poured from a can into a pint glass. Very dark brown with a nice beige head and good lacing. Smells of dark toast. The taste starts with a slightly sweet cherry, toasted malt and caramel and end with a bit of bitter dark chocolate. A really nice Porter!

Pours near black. Thick, short, light brown head that lasts a while fading to a ring.

Smells roasted malt, light dark chocolate and dark fruit.

Tastes roasted, Caramel malt, lightly dark chocolate and fruit. Followed by a touch of coffee and roast. finish is dry with a light earthy bitterness. Lighter medium body and fizzy medium carbonation.

I don't know where robust Porter comes from. This is a very average Porter.

A look that beckons towards a darker porter and a more intense beer. The body looks fine, almost a solid black, and the head is an off-white which lingers more than the average beer I'd reckon.

That being said the smell and taste beckon towards something more tropical. Light bready malts as well as some dark fruit and a hint of some serious hop bitterness on the smell.

The taste indicates more of the same, following the bready, dark fruit characteristics initially detected. Confusing beer given that it is dark like a robust porter but unafraid to give off those fruity characteristics more reminiscient of a dark, dark lambic or even some sort of strange IPA.

This is probably the least malty dark porter I've ever encountered, relying on hops bitterness and the sour smell to make it through. Cheers! I personally always enjoy something different even if it's not perfect.
