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.

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.

A - Dark coffee brown, medium tan head that decreases to thin layer of a lighter tan head.

S - Rich dark coffee with a bitter sweet chocolate.

T - Well balanced Trio of chocolate, roasted malt, and bitterness. Just the right amount of richness and bitterness is achieved to complement the milky chocolate finish.

M - Heaver side of medium body feel. Bitterness that's followed by roasted milk chocolate.

D - My preferred way to drink this beer is while snacking on blueberries and/or strawberries. The sweetness of the fruit and the rich bitterness of the beer are a amazing combo.

Primordial Porter - Original Gravity Brewing Company I had this beer at Slows barbecue on tap. Pours thick and murky brown with a nice tan head that disapated quickly. Chocolate smells along with an earthiness. This beers hops were interesting, dank but intriguing..Smooth and chewy. goes down easy, no bitter. A wonderful compliment to dinner.
