I have tried many porters and this beer has ruined me for all others. Many are to sweet on the back of my tongue, this beer is a perfect mixture of hearty coffee nutty flavors. Poured pitch black with a oaky head. At the brewery they serve it nitro, which is an entirely new mouthfeel. This is the perfect porter for my pallet.

Another winner from Central Water. Pours a nice dark brown color, small head leaving good lacing. Smells exceptional, roasty and awesome. Taste is great, a bit of burnt roast with a good coffee undertone. Good mouthfeel, a tiny bit watery, but not bad, still has a thick and awesome feel. Super drinkable, I will be picking up a full 6 pack of this next time at the beer store.

The beer poured black with ruby highlights and a tan head that coated the glass.

The aroma was chocolate and some dark fruits. In the background is a slight roastiness and caramel.

The flavor was smooth silky chocolate with coffee. The bittering is substantial enough to provide more than a subtle balance and the beer had a nice complexity of flavor as a result.

The finish was dry with chocolate and slight coffee lasting long and pleasant well into the aftertaste. The body was medium and well done.

What a great beer!

12 ounce bottle, thanks to Skidz and BIF10.

This was poured from the bottle into a pint glass.

A - deep amber color, decent head that settles into a well retained lacing

S - roasted, chocolate-like malt aroma

T - rich dark malts, somewhat smoky with prominent hop flavors, moderately strong hop finish

M - medium body, moderate carbonation

D - This is a really good robust porter - very exceptional. It's quite a treat - try it if you can get your hands on some.
