Keg blew after just half a pint poured. Good amount of lasting head, of course. Dark, creamy texture with coffee, chocolate aroma and taste. Nice, subtle toasty flavor too. Don't drink porters too often, but this was a nice change of pace.

On tap at the source. Brown pour, good, deep 1" tan head. Aroma was delectable coffee. Well done.

Taste followed up in the same vein, a robust porter than walks right up to the line of being a stout, and says, nah. If you like em roasty, thick and easy drinking at the same time, this should be up your alley.

the first non wild beer i have had from these guys, i didnt even know they did stuff like this. on tap at city beer in san francisco. its definitely in the robust porter family, with a shiny dark brown body and a milkshake thick tan head on top with outstanding retention, really pretty beer. it smells and tastes very deep and intense for the style, heavy roast but also a big dose of sweet caramel malts in the middle, brown sugar and toffee, dark chocolate and drip coffee, sweet and bitter, bittersweet even. i like the dark end better than the sweet center. light smoke gives it depth, milk and dark chocolate are there too. velvet texture to this is really nice, it coats the throat on the way down, and is overall a really well made beer. hard to think of these guys doing beers like this though, i kept waiting for some interesting yeast element to arise, but that never happens here. great porter, real well made and dense on the flavor front. better in winter i would imagine than in early summer. i have a new respect for these guys after this one.

On cask at monks kettle.

Pours jet black with creamy head. Taste and fragrance are peculiar but very good. The vanilla is there if a bit extract-y but complemented by a savoriness that works well with the cask style.
