Pours a black color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of slight liquor, alcohol, sweet malt, hint of roasted malt, and slight hops. Fits the style of an English Porter. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with a high carbonation level. Tastes of liquor, sweet malt, hint of roasted malt, slight hop, hint of yeast, and a hint of dry hops. Overall, decent appearance, good aroma, body, and complexity.

Serving type: on-tap

An ok Porter. Easy drinking. Pours a dark brown color into a pint glass. Medium size tan head with a hard pour. Average retention and a few thick spotty lacing patches.

Aroma is roasted malt and a little chocolate and coffee.

Taste is similar. the malts are up front. The chocolate and coffee are more trace flavors.

Mouthfeel is fairly light and crisp with a little bitterness. Goes down easy.

Overall not bad at all. A pleasant sipping beer.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours an opaque deep brown with a frothy tan head that slowly dissipates, leaving modest lacing.

Dark chocolate dominates, with toasted, nutty and toasted malt weighing in. There's a hint of coffee.

Roast malt dominates the flavor profile, finishing a bit acrid and fairly bitter. Chocolate lingers throughout, but the bitterness overwhelms.

Body is moderate, with fairly high carbonation and a carbonic bite.

This one is too bitter and harsh for me.
