Picked this up when driving through Galveston. Didn't get much carbonation on the pour. Taste is sweet caramel with some smokiness. Mouthfeel is pretty light, but smooth aftertaste makes this a great beer.

Watch out when you pour! Foams up like crazy.

Once the head subdues though it looks really nice in the glass. Aromas of coffee are present.

I must have had a weird bottle because the combination for me was ridiculous! Like drinking soda almost.

Once that subsides though this is a solid porter I would try again. Taste is amazing and does not have the watery feel some porters do. If it weren't for the carbonation, I would rate this one better.

Poured from a 22 oz bomber into a pint glass.

Great name, as this poured a jet black stream into the glass with a thick tan head. The head was fizzy at first, more like a soft drink head, but settle into a giant foamy head that lingered, but didn't leave any lacing.

Smell is mostly burnt/roasted malt. I know there were hops there, but I couldn't pick them out as much as I expected.

Taste was good and improved as it warmed. Early, it was all roasted malt and coffee with some dark chocolate, but as it warmed the dark fruit and hoppiness appeared, which was nice.

The mouthfeel was about perfect for this style as many end up too watery.

Not my favorite beer, but enjoyable. I am used to the more English Porter style which is a little less roasty tasting, but this one grew on me.
