Pours a deep mahogany brown that is all but opaque. The thick head is a lovely tan color with an abundance of sticky lace, quite decently carbonated. Strong grapefruit hops notes mingle with dark roasted, earthy malts, a most unusual pairing. Taste begins with sharply acidic grapefruit hops, followed by bitter chocolate, coffee, and pine tar notes which linger beyond the end of the taste. The mouth feel is quite smooth. This beer proves that a familiar style can be made quite exotic. Home brewers take note.

Pours a very dark ruby brown color with a thick and creamy tan colored head that loves to cling to the glass. Nose is sweet caramel and fresh brewed coffee. Medium in body and the taste is sweet milk chocolate followed by notes of bitter dark coffee, tart citrus, and fresh pine. Bitter hop resins remain in a lingering aftertaste. This is a very unusual porter that’s also very tasty. Definitely worth a try if you haven’t had it before.

Bought locally (Grapevine refrigerated shelves), a week in my fridge, reviewed 45F-60F.

What a nice looking dense tan head. Thick clumpy lacing. Black liquid with ruby highlights.

Wow. Hops up my nose along with some tobacco. The front is bitter citrus hoppiness. The middle is hoppy again... and there's that faint tobacco taste. A little cream and bitter chocolate when warm. Full-bodied. The finish is extreme bitterness, some smokiness, some tea.

I'm surprised at how aggressively hopped this is. I like strong hops. I like porters. Together? Why not.

This is a gorgeous brew. Crystal clear ruby-black in color with a thick, tan pancake of a head with tenacious lace atop medium to small sized bubbles. The bottle says it's dry-hopped and there is no doubting it. The aroma is predominately grapefruit...lots of fruity hops with just a bit of lavender incense hidden somewhere in there. Mouthfeel is firm and thick. This is a robust porter...Starts with a prominent fruity hoppy sweetness, fading into a sweet roasted malt background with subtle tinges of nickel, and ending in a long coffee and loud, fruity bittering hop finish. Quite rich...one should take some antacid before partaking in this brew. This is not a balanced beer, and it's not supposed to be, but it is well-done and enjoyable none-the-less. If you like IPA's and Porters, try this...it's the best of both worlds.

A quite deep garnet to brown color, the head spumous in texture, prodigious in size, the lace massive sheets that cling strongly to the glass, both a light chocolate color. Nose is caramel, hop floral and a light bittersweet chocolate sweetness also present. Start is ambrosial; top is middling in mouth feel. Finish is perky in its carbonation, rigorously hopped, droughty malt aftertaste. Avery makes some fine brews if you not tried them, well worth the effort to find and sample.

You can tell this f'er is dry hopped to an extreme. It smells more like a Bigfoot than any porter I've had. I'm guessing bigtime Centennials dry hopping. The beer looks very nice. Dark ruby and a wonderful, thick light brown colored head sits on top. Shows great retention and lacing. I'm having a hard time getting into this porter. Usually I like a highly hopped porter (SN, Rogue, Summit, etc,), but this one goes overboard. The porter qualities aren't allowed to come through much. Just the barleywine type of hopping. Very little roastedness or coffee-like tones. This is not a bad beer. Just a pretty average but unique porter.

First off. This is a positively gorgeous looking beer. Very black, with ruby edging. Large, fluffy tan head retains and laces as well as any.
Aroma of charred pine.
Hops figure prominately in the taste. They tout the dry hopping on the label. Piney, with touches of citrus. This rests upon a solid burnt background. Just a touch of chocolate, then a return to highly roasted coffee. Tasty, but not all together. I am getting some out of place citric sourness, and burning tar flavors as well. Still, it tastes like a good porter.
Body is fairly light. It really holds this beer back. Thicken this one, and now we are talking.
Easy drinking, session porter.
