Draft at Pegs... had to stop by. Reviewed on ky phone, so it is shortened.
Pours a nice dark brown with a little ring of head.
Nose is smokey and roasted malty...
Taste follows... a bit smokey with a nice roasted flavor too.
A bit on the thinner side.... but good none the less.

On tap at the wonderful Peg's Cantina in Gulfport. Served in a snifter at slightly lower than room temperature, as it should be.

A - Pours an fairly opaque dark brown, with some faint auburn highlights when held up to the sun. Only a thin cap of mocha-colored head on the pour, which doesn't really hang around long. No lacing to speak of.

S - Cocoa, roast, and a cereal-like quality, like Cheerios. Where some porters have an earthiness, this one has more of an oat aroma coupled with some smokiness, which is is a pleasant combination.

T - Flavors start somewhere between dark and milk chocolate lead off, with a nice dark-roasty, coffee-like element. There's some hoppiness, which helps to keep it from being dominated by the roast. Little to no alcohol at all. The finish is fairly short but is a mix of sweetness and toast.

M - Thick and creamy at first, with a full body. It edges closer to watery toward the finish.

O - It's a pretty nice execution of a pretty pedestrian style. It's good but doesn't really have an element that sets it apart from the pack. Probably the least memorable beer of my latest visit -- not a knock on this beer but there are some great offerings at Peg's.

A: it was very dark, granted the atmosphere wasn't well lit but for porters I didn't expect to be able to see much in the way of colors. It came with a dark mocha colored head.

S: my nose wasn't working so well today but I got some sweetness and roasty smokiness. It smelled like a porter should.

T: like the smell it had a nice sweetness and roasted coffee flavor. A mellow smokiness as well. Its a well balanced beer not to bold but just right in flavor.

MF: like I said a very balanced beer. It had a medium mouth feel. It didn't stay in my mouth too long but just enough to let the flavors linger. Minimal bitterness offset by the sweetness.

O: its a good beer, I'm not huge on porters but this is a good one. Plus with a name like The Dude, how can you not want to try it.

The Dude abides.

Had this on-tap at Peg's.

Served in a pint.

A: There was some translucence are the edges of this dark brew, but nothing to write home about. The head was mild, but oh so icky and sticky!

S: Very roasty, with a good bit of BBQ pork and brown sugar. On second thought, make that baked beans.

T: This was lighter than I was expecting, but infinitely gulpable. Much the same as the smell, but more toasty rather than roasty.

M: Bitter on the end, but fairly low on the sugar end. Nice balance between the intense ingredients along with the carbonation bill.

O: I'd call this one a "summer porter" through and through. I'd pop a growler of this in a heartbeat.

growler poured in to a guiness glass.

Pours a dark brown with a bubbly tan head.

Mildly sweet smell with a roasty finish.

Taste is a somewhat dry, roasty classic porter.

Mouthfeel is a little thin, but not for a drinkable porter.

A very nice, balanced porter.

A: single finger rapidly dissipating light brown head. Very black.

S: smokey and chocolatey

T: smokey dominance. Not very complex or special compared to others. A fairly standard porter taste.

M: full body and moderate carbonation.

Overall: This was a typical porter. A lot of brewers tend to be safe with these in order to keep the standard beer drinker pleased.
