Once. Year brew and it’s worth the wait. Solid porter. Pitch blacked with lacing that hangs around but not much of a head. Roast and toasty smell as well as a taste feel. Malty(ish) for me and that was fine. Nicely heavy and not particularly smooth but raspy. I liked that. an OK aftertaste. Fine brew from a fun brewery.

The appearance was a dark brown close to black color with a one finger white to off white foamy head that dissipates within about a minute and leaves a decent amount of foamy lacing. The smell was roasty and bitter coffee pervading through some light caramel, chocolate and oatmeal. The taste took those flavors and combined it wonderfully. There was a nice bitter coffee aftertaste that ended up leaving a dry finish. On the palate, it sat about a medium on the body with a quality that wanted to show a decent sessionability but kinda made me sip it. The carbonation was good for the style and for me as it was slightly smooth and creamy. Overall, I say this was a good American Porter well worthy of having again.

This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a dark brown close to black color with a one finger white to off white foamy head that dissipates within about a minute and leaves a decent amount of foamy lacing. The smell was roasty and bitter coffee pervading through some light caramel, chocolate and oatmeal. The taste took those flavors and combined it wonderfully.
