A- Pours thick, but an aggressive pour yields a lot of tan head. Deep black.

S- Roast, a little fruity notes. Roast comes out more as it warms.

T- Roast, some tangy hops, more roast. Delicious and what I expect in a porter.

M- Not to thick, not too light. My standard for the style.

O- My favorite porter. Very affordable, very available, very easy-drinking, very rich and flavorful. Cheers
