A- Pours out dark brown. Head disappears quick. No lacing down the glass.
S - Roasty malts, charred wood.
T - Taste is everything with this one IMO. Great malts, with a touch of sweet. A bit of burnt coffee and chocolate.
M - Not as thick as I like (especially with a stout), but is quite pleasing to the palate.
O - Great porter from a great brewery.

bottle to pint glass.

aggressive pour to 2 fingers of light khaki head.

great drink, outstanding stout/porter.

great flavor profiles. all clean, nothing bad to say, no wow factor to put it in world class. will drink again.

compared to other beers in this category, this may be my favorite.non - bourbon aged/vanilla/chocolate/java/ stout/porter
