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.
