Enjoyed from a growler via DEPS in KY in a snifter. This nice porter pours a deep blackish brown with a nice head of light tan foam that settles in a thick ring, thin pool, and excellent lacing. Nose of bakers cocoa, light char, and sweet roasted malts and grains. Flavors follow the nose with roasted malts and grain up front that fades in the middle to lightly bitter dark chocolate, and ends with roasted malts. Smooth, nice medium carbonation to keep it lively and sessionable, and a roasted aftertaste. Solid for the style. A nice brew.

Cheers

Black Gold Porter on tap at Country Boy.

Opaque black with large light tan head.

Feel: medium-full body with medium + carbonation. A bit too lively.

Mildly sweet up front; mildly bitter by the lightly smokey finish

Mild aroma of dark roasted malts and chocolate.

O: Good, but not outstanding. Higher ABV is well hidden.

Deepest of dark browns this Porter set up with a dense foam for a head. The nose was slightly malted with tinges of chocolate and biscuit. The flavor had a lot of purple grape sweetness with a backdrop of chocolate malt. It was very clean with a thin, watery dryness. Ultimately this is very drinkable but needs a thickness and robustness of dried fruits.
