16oz tallboy, sample from the brewery.

Black with edges of dark brown, tan lacing leaves a trail down the glass. Big league smoothness, slightly creamy body within a nearly full body. Suggestions of dark chocolate, espresso, charcoal, & burnt toast. Ample bitterness from the hops and roasted character. Its robust but not over the top, drinkable but bold. A very enjoyable Porter.

Pours dark brown with ruby highlights and a finger of creamy tan head that settles to a thin film and leaves behind good lacing. Aroma is subdued but has lightly burnt malts with some caramel and grainy notes. Lightly burnt malt is the dominant flavor here but it doesn't overwhelm. I also get toffee and caramel but the finish is relatively dry. Medium bodied with moderate+ carbonation. Overall I found this beer to be more than the sum of its parts. It's. Tasty and drinkable Porter; I'd be even happier if the ANV were a bit lower so I could session this.

Pours black from 16 oz can, canned 3 weeks ago. Thin tan head that fades out quickly. Aroma is strong roasted grain boarding on burnt toast. Taste is bitter and roasted, like a porter should, but I find a bit too bitter. I could deal with the bitterness with a slightly better mouthfeel. Feel is good, but not among the better porters I've had.
Overall a solid, drinkable porter, but no surprises here.

This is definitely a nice beer. Crazy looking hazy chocolate brown, looks thick and chocolaty. The smell is standard porter stuff as well as the taste but it is very smooth, very easy drinking, and very tasty. yb

Look is dark brown with Amber highlights. Slightly tan head.

Aroma is roasted malt.

Taste is coffee with lots of roasted malt. Astringent bitter but in a delicious day.
