Very tasty and well balanced porter.

This is one of my favorites at Original Gravity. The flavor is roasted chocolate with a hint of coffee. Not sweet but balanced well. It pours with a thick tan head. The color is a dark brownish/black. The mouthfeel is quite smooth.

Most porters I have had at brewpubs have been a little thin or watery but this porter is tops.

A-Deep, dark brown with some ruby highlights. A light tan head starts strong and reduces to a thin cap and leaves spotty lace.

S-A healthy dose of roast and chocolate...enough roast to make my wife exclaim WOW!

T-Smooth roasted malt and backing bitterness from the malt and the earthy hops.

M-Medium body with a full smooth feel. Good lingering bitterness and chocolate flavour.

D-A really nice, solid, all day drinking beer. Plenty of flavour without ever becoming too heavy.

Tap at OG. The usual black/brown pour. Light tan head. Sticks to the glass ok.

Aroma, nice roast malt, chocolates, cocoa. Faintest coffee.

Taste matches well. Very smooth balance of roast malt, dark chocolate, cocoa. Slight earthiness. No harshness or bitterness.

Very smooth and creamy, yet on the lighter side of medium bodied. Goes down extreamly easy. Great session porter, best of the 3 I had.

Been meaning to stop by this place for a while, got a friend who lives in a nearby farm town.
Was served in a 20oz nonic glass.

A: is a dark- brownish-black color, cloudy, with a beige 1/4 inch head with good amounts of lacing.

S: Smells robust, chocolate, coffee, toffee, earthy tones, woody tones, smoky

T: Tastes pretty good, woody character, smoky feel, very chocolatey, toffee, coffee, barley, spices

M: Smoky feel, full bodied with medium carbonation, very rich, very pleasant

O: This a pretty good porter and it's got a cool name. I was paying cheap prices and was loving this stuff. If you ever find yourself in Milan, here is a place to swing buy and grab a few.
