Good porter flavor, but a little on the light side.

A - Black brown with a two finger tan foamy head, thick lacing. Looks great.
S - Aroma isnt super strong here, but its what you'd want, big roasts, dark baking chocolate, slight nuttiness.
T - OUTSTANDING. This is EXACTLY what you want your porter to taste like. The roasted malts in here are big and complex, going from sweet to almost a light savor flavor, toasted oats, bready, rich, some nuttiness, chocolate.
M - very balanced, not dry, not sweet, very medium.
O - Was blow away by this beer, just solid all the way around. I cant believe its rated so low. Just stoked on such a solid example of this porter.
