Served on tap into a shaker glass.

A- Poured black with an off-white frothy head that left lots of splashy lace.

S- Big chocolate, cocoa, nutty, brown sugar, and spice notes in the aroma. Very aromatic and rich aroma.

T- Big chocolate, cocoa, nutty, roasted malt, brown sugar, and some light spice notes.

M- Very creamy, smooth, silky, medium body, and dry finish. Incredible mouthfeel and just what I want in a porter or stout.

O- This is the first beer I have had from a Texas brewery on my trip in Texas and it has set the bar very high. This porter is incredibly flavorful, unique, and silky smooth. This beer reminds me of nutella with the big cocoa notes and nutty characteristics.

Had on tap at the Dig Pub.
Poured a 1 finger head into a pint glass.
Appearance is Black, opaque.
Aroma: Coffee notes, hops , some pecan apparent.
Taste: Roasty, chocolate, coffee. Straining to taste some pecan... it come out at the end after the roastiness fades.

M/D: This is very drinkable for a porter. The mouthfeel is medium, not too thick, but that contributes to the drinkability.
Overall, an excellent beer. One of the top porters I've had and definitely the best available in Texas.

So good when it's fresh. Don't bother if it's not.
