Poured from bottle into a stien. Huge frothy head, nice lacing. Dark brown, deep red color. Not great at describing tastes but this one kind of has a burnt flavor to it. The malty flavor wants to come out but just can't overcome the burnt taste. Lots of carbonation which also affects the taste and mouthfeel. Overall an average porter, would probably try again if served on tap.

Pours a clear, dark brown color. 1/3 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and decent lacing. Smells of sweet malt, slight roasted malt, slight alcohol, slight hops, yeast, hint of chocolate, and a hint of oatmeal. Fits the style of an American Porter. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, hint of roasted malt, hint of oatmeal, slight alcohol, yeast, and a hint of hop. Overall, good appearance, aroma, body, blend, and complexity.

Had on-tap at Buffalo Nickel Asheville. Served in a pint glass.
A- Pours a mostly opaque black color with a 1/4 inch tan head that retains well before becoming a full sheet of surface foam. Resilient lacing slides slowly down the glass.
S-Good roasty aroma that's slightly sweet with notes of milk chocolate. A bit nutty.
T- Flavor brings more roast but it's moderate as a porter should be. However, unlike other porters, the flavor is not moderate. Plenty of chocolate and vanilla sweetness and a bit of coffee in the aftertaste.
M- Slightly robust with medium carbonation and a full body.
O- While it's not exceptional, I feel like the low BA score of this beer doesn't do it justice. It's one of ABC's best beers IMO and it being available in cans certainly doesn't hurt.
