On tap at Yard House, San Antonio, TX. Pours dark brown with creamy, beige head and nice lacing. Aroma is of toasted malt, dark fruit, chocolate and coffee. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Taste is of toasted malt, coffee, vanilla, brown sugar, dark fruit and chocolate. Finish is long with coffee after taste. Good porter.

On tap in a pint glass.
Looks really dark, pretty much black. Small head that thins out to a small lace that keeps over time.
Taste has notes of coffee, at times burnt coffee. Malty. And some light notes of pecan that don't always come through.
Pretty good beer, I'd get it again.

Served on tap in a shaker, pours a mahogany with a thin khaki crown....not a ton of lacing. Nose is promising if a little underdeveloped- I get some bitter coffee, some baker's chocolate, meaty and woody pecan (but light). Taste follows the nose...and there might be a little vanilla in there. It's nice but I'm a limited way. Feel is a little thin, a litle flat.
