black as night with a reddish brown head. smells like scotch, but also some black licorice and mild sweetness. the carbonation is really nice, more refreshing than most porters, not too sticky or too sweet. this is great. some woody flavors subtle grape and root beer as well.

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
