Pours an opaque dark bron with khaki colored head. Roasted malts, cocoa powder, and earthiness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with plenty of roasty character and some lingering chocolate.

Appearance: A nice bubble show progresses from the pour, resulting in a three inch thick beige head; the liquid beneath is fudge brown and the foam leaves a few shards of lacing; nice retention

Smell: Chocolate and butterscotch, with hints of roast and citrus

Taste: Chocolate forward, with roast and citrusy hops building; there is a hint of butterscotch underneath, but it is not as pronounced as it was in the aroma; the finish is highly influenced by the hops

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A pretty nice porter; like the impact of the hops here but would prefer to see more complexity in the malt flavors

Thanks, jmueller216, for the opportunity

On tap at Sigler's in Tennessee.
Excellent looking with a black body and a fine tan head. Nice lacing.
Light aroma. Mildly bitter by the finish. Lots of dark roasted grain flavor. Smoky but not overly burnt. Very smooth full body. Near medium carbonation.

"Drink by 12/18/15"; drank 12/15/15 (phew!) @ the Yarchives.

Poured from the can into a glass.

Opaque brown/purple appearance.

A rough pour yielded a big, noisy khaki head; strong lace.

Milk chocolate, plum, fresh earth & cream notes in the nose.

Creamy medium mouthfeel.

Cream, oats & milk chocolate flavors up front; fresh earth & faint raspberry notes on the finish. A flavorful, sessionable porter; wonder if it's better fresher?!
