      Black, actually. Nice dense head. Smells like coffee! This is a Porter, and a damn fine one. Lots of black malt and coffee flavor, real roasty and pretty sweet. Not a lot of wheat character, but who cares.

      Red, flat, no head. Spicy, caramel aroma. Spicy, big, sweet. If I hadn't already tasted the Rocket Red, this would be fantastic. Word: "focus"...just like sharpening the image in a telescope's eyepiece.

      Overall Impression (2½)
      Dark amber, nearly opaque. Relatively thin head. Fruity, citrusy nose. Thick. Very bitter, quite fruity. Lingering bitterness, but not balanced at all. Served on the "nitro tap".

      Overall Impression
      Bitter...long. Quite yellow. Sorta fizzy.

      Black opaque and good head. Roasty-burnt aroma. Good body, good burnt flavors...good Porter.

      Overall Impression (3)
      Definitely black, thin brown head. Nice roasty aroma that reminds me of the original Devil Mountain Devil's Brew. Real smooth. Like they say in their description, "sweet start and bitter finish." The black malt works really well, not burnt or astringent at all. This is a Really Good Beer! It's just like the original Devil's Brew, which was one of the best Porters ever.
