Had on nitro at the Pour House in Westmont, NJ.

A nice, easy-drinking beer, that is exceptionally smooth due to the nitro.

This beer could REALLY benefit from some more roasty, malted goodness. The taste is just a little bland/ watered-down. Otherwise, all the right flavors are there - just extremely muted.

Still, a nice, forgetful drinker.

Had this on tap at the Pour House in 2014, then a bottle in 2016. The 2014 draft version was pleasant but watery. Bottle was easy to drink. Dark roasty malt and strong molasses flavor in the middle and finish. Not exceptional but smooth and drinkable, good for washing down pie. Porter is one of my favorite styles as I like dark beer, so I am biased, but I would definitely look for this again.

A good beer with a nice appearance, deep ruby brown in the light with a tall two finger beige head which is dense and long lasting.
Aromas of roasted malts char and vanilla.
Taste is like the nose malty rich with roast and char. Vanilla weaves its sweet creaminess throught out the taste.
I like this.

Nice porter that is lightly sweetened, flavored, and smoothed by molasses and vanilla.
