I've heard this one is awesome on cask. This is from normal tap
Pours a dark roasted brown/black. Off white head
This beer was poured too cold, so I let it warm up a bit. Coffee and roasted malt are the headliners of the nose. A bit hoppy
Flavors are those of above. Less coffee and more roasted malt. Some light toffee and caramel. Coldness really hampers this one. Feels a tad thin, but it is quite drinkable.
Would love to have this on cask

i can excuse an average beer by a new brewery as long as its served properly in a cool environment, and this definitely was. pours hershey syrup color brown with almost no head. looks a little flat, and indeed is a little flat in feel. nose is dark english malts and a hint of bitter cocoa, but its not up front and intense, its a very subtle beer in all aspects. flavor is really generic, like ive had this before a million times and forgotten it until now, it is tasty and all, very drinkable, but its unexciting, and not distinct from the last or next porter in my opinion. the feel is a little light on carbonation and a little thin in body too i think, even recognizing that this is an english, not an american porter. it still felt a bit runny in the mouth and lacked that bitter finish indicative of the style. overall though not a bad beer, and one the has room to grow with the brewery itself.

On cask at the brewery, tasted a friend's pint and immediately ordered one. Dark black, expected head. Smell is robust, malts, coffee, chocolate, roast. Flavor is very robust porter: coffee, chocolate, malts. It literally coats the tongue and you can taste it lingering in your mouth. Great stuff especially if you like porters. I dare say this might be the best porter in Colorado.
