easily the best beer I had on my visit to phantom canyon. the pour from the cask is just sensational, with a matted black luster and a short but persistent chocolate brown head. the nose is definitely smoky, peaty like a good scotch, and refined in its roasted malt character. the taste is much more tame on the peat, and this is not a smoked beer per se. those elements take a back seat to dark roasted English barley malt, and bitter dark chocolate notes, as well as a pleasant ale yeast imparting some bready depth. feel is soft as a pillow from the ask, and the cellar temperature allows the flavors to fully develop right from the first sip. this is an expertly made beer, far better than anything I expected to encounter at phantom canyon. I wish I could say the same for their hefeweizen... this however, was a splendid twist on a porter, and a beer I would drive back to the springs to drink again.

ON tap at the brewpub. Pours dark brown with a creamy, long lasting, off-white head. Aroma is of toasted malt dark fruit, coffee, vanilla and dark chocolate. Body is full and creamy, no carbonation. Taste is toasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, coffee, dark fruit. Long bitter finish. Good porter, but I don’t like it flat.

A- Thick, very dark black with a finger of creamyy brown head, impressive

S- Slight bit of smokiness, light cocoa notes, sweetness

T- Slight roasted bitterness throughout, slightly sweet, light smokiness

M- Moderate body, cask smoothness is very enjoyable

O- I thought there was a good amount of complexity between the smokiness and roast to keep the brew interesting throughout, being served from a cask really helps the flavors come out and gives a great mouthfeel. I'll definitely ask for this again.
