On tap at CW's in Columbia.

A: A deep opaque brown beer, with a 2 finger tight tan head that lasts and lasts.

S: I get sweet roasted malt, cocoa, coffee, minor hop bitterness. A basic porter smell, nothing fancy or weird.

T: Lightly blackened malt, cocoa, burnt sugar, and coffee swirl in a rich blend that's perfectly bittersweet. Classic porter flavors done well!

M. Nailed! Creamy but not thick, and mellow enough to gulp. No harshness here or undesirable sourness. Leaves behind a fine cocoa aftertaste. Eminently drinkable.

Frankly, this is another hit from Foothills, a company with which I'm rapidly becoming enamored. This is a classic pub porter. Well done.
