Served on tap at brewery.
A - Near black with a lasting but small tan head. Some mahogany highlights.
Aroma: malty with some hops in the background.
T - Richer and more bitter than your average porter. Slightly smokey, especially in the finish which is also tinted with coffee and bitter chocolate. ABC beers tend to be earthy, which works well in most cases, but this one is too earthy.
M - medium-full body with rather light carbonation.
O - after really enjoying some other beers at ABC, I was disappointed with this dark brew. Certainly not exceptional, but solid and now available in cans.

Poured from can. Appearance is dark brown with a thin tan head. Minimal lacing. Aroma is chocolate, caramel, and a bit of toast. Taste follows suit but a bit metallic and has notes of coffee and a slight hop bitterness. Medium body with moderate low carbonation. Overall a mediocre porter.

This is my first new porter in a while. It's pretty good. Worth a try. It's very light in body for a porter, but I'm finding that enjoyable in this particular brew. It's got a nice chocolate and malt character that leads it away from tasting too much like cold coffee, which it would otherwise be in danger of doing because it is low in carbonation in addition to being light in body. So, if you want a nice, relaxing, light-bodied porter that is a little interesting without being in-your-face with flavour, give this a try. If that sounds awful to you, stay away.
