12 oz bottle poured into pint glass

A: Big foamy head settles to rocky, sticky foam, color is near black, very very dark brown with chestnut edges, great lacing

S: Malty with layers of caramel, nothing special

T: More roasted and less caramel than aroma, almost hints of wood, has background dark bread but decent roasted bitterness

M: Decent body but remains on the litter end, dry

O: Good flavor but heavy on the roast and low on complexity

Pours a black with some ruby around the edges. Has a nice darker tan head that falls to scum leaves some sparse lace behind.

Aroma is nice chocolate malts with some roasted character mostly coffee like under the chocolate.

Taste is roasted upfront with good doses of chocolate little light in the middle with a nice dry roasted finish. Finish has some nice roasted coffee flavors that mingle with grassy/minty like hops.

Mouthfeel is solid medium with average amounts of carbonation.

Overall a pretty solid porter good and favorable nothing over the top just as it should be.

I like this beer, but it is not great. It is a regular in my rotation due to it's availabity in my area. It is an easy drinking porter with decent taste, only the mouthfeel is a little watery and it has a slight burnt aftertaste. It gets better as it warms up. Still it a decent attempt at an english style porter.

12 ounce bottle poured into a snifter.

A: Pours a very dark brown color with a one finger head and nice lacing.

S: Dark chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts.

T: More of the roasted malts and coffee up front followed by a light chocolate flavor in the end. Very nice.

M: Medium bodied with decent carbonation.

O: This is a very drinkable and enjoyable Porter. If it was a little heavier, it could be considered a stout. I'll gladly drink it anytime.

I love this beer. Chocolate malts present as its poured into a tumbler, very good head and lacing. Aftertaste is very nice, chocolate malts finish. Abv is low enough to have a few and still be on point. Most porters are too light for my tastes, but this porter has a pretty full body.
