Had some on tap last night while driving through on work trip.

Thin mouthfeel, and not much going on in terms of aroma. Small hints of chocolate but really lacking in complexity and depth.

Needs some work. I probably would avoid this next time.

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.

On tap; served in a pint glass. At Red Rock Downtown Barbecue in Ypsilanti, MI.

Appearance: The beer is an opaque black brown in color. The foam had subsided into a ring by the time the glass reached the table.

Aroma: Sweet malt with no hops presence.

Taste: Followed the aroma pretty much: Malty with only a subtle hops flavor. Black coffee and bitter chocolate with some sweetness to balance.

Mouthfeel: The beer has a medium body. Carbonation is at a medium light level.

Overall: This beer goes well with BBQ. As noted above, it is more sweet and malty rather than hoppy which is fine with me as I like the malty end of the spectrum. The waiter said that this is one of their "stock" beers. I will look for it again on my next visit to Red Rock and plan to visit OG in the near future.
