Good dark color, but the head dissipated quickly. A bit of good lacing on the glass though. Good strong malty smell typical of a porter. A bit of coffee and chocolate on the tongue, but what stands out the most is the smoky flavor. It's almost overpowering. Not TOO BAD, but I've had much better porters.

This was poured into a mug. The appearance was a dark brown close to black color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light lacing roaming all around the glass. The smell had a roasty robust black coffee with a sharp bitter hoppiness (slight earthy pine). The taste was mainly sharp roasty robust toasty and dark coffee, light chocolate does enter in a bit at the end. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was there but nothing overbearing. It carried a nice sharp bitter roasty coffee rolling over my tongue. Overall, I say this was a pretty good porter that I would have again.

On draft on the Bowie location, in a shaker pint glass.

Black in color, not much head though. a good amount of roast in the aroma and taste. On the drier side. Full bodied.
