Pours a nearly black brown color. A finger of khaki head forms fairly quickly and hangs around through the first few sips before disappearing in a few spider webs of lace. Aroma is nutty, with roasted malts, and caramel. Flavor profile is sweet, with notes of caramel, chocolate, and roasted malts. Mouth feel is a little abrasive and aggressive, especially on the back of the tongue. Otherwise, it's about a medium-level of consistency. The mouth feel thickens up as the beer warms, and gets grainy, with a little bit more fun mouth feel. Overall, it's a tasty brew, with a good amount going on. It isn't the easiest to drink, but it's still tasty.

Served in a 12oz snifter.

not enough good porters out there lately, so this was a nice one to come across. maybe not quite as robust and intense as some of the most gnarly ones out there, but there is a lot of flavor to this, and its one of the better tallgrass beers i have had lately. i feel like these guys are at their best when they leave out the goofy ingredients and gimmicks and just make beer. this has a deep dark chocolate flavor to it with the bitterness of strong drip coffee, lots of dark roast, heavy on the dark barley and leaving out some of the sweet middle a lot of these have, less of the crystal malts there. slight dried fruit sweetness here, raisin or prune, but its quickly turned back bitter again by the dark malt an the prominent dark chocolate, pushing harshly bitter in the finish, but there is enough of a big smooth body to sort of mellow that out with texture, and it lingers long without being sweet, perfect for the chilly evenings that have just began again. nice use of the dark malts here and even the unmalted black barley. this is well made beer without all the frills of a lot of their stuff. excellent this time of year.
