Good but not great, and I would drink it again. Unique name and branding, but nothing really special about this porter.

A- Pours solid black. Light peeks through it very brown as a slight halo around the edges. Half a finger of off-white uneven foam leaves blotches of lacing.

S- Chalk, roast, a little sweet nuttiness, almost like peanut brittle.

T- Meaty, a little smoky, lots of roast and wood, coffee grounds, cold press coffee.

M- A little thin for what I'd expect, but makes it decently easy drinking.

O- A decent porter. It's up my alley but not quite in my wheelhouse- I'd prefer a little more hops note and not quite as smoky. But I'd recommend this to another porter lover.

A: [4.25] Nice cola color. The beer is clear and has red hues. The beer forms a solid 2 finger off head. The head looks like root beer float. Lots of creamy bubbles. The bottle lists the ABV (5.8%). I can't find any bottled or best by dates.

S: [3.75] Roasted malts and chocolate dominate the nose.

T: [4.00] The taste is of really nice roasted malts. I am detecting less chocolate on the palate. The roasted malt tang yields to malt sweetness on the back end.

M: [3.50] The body is a bit thin. There is no noticeable carbonation or alcohol. There is a slightly dry finish.

O: [3.75] A good example of a robust porter. I am certain that you could session a few of these. The go down smoothly and have a nice flavor profile. Improvements would be elevated chocolate flavors and aroma and slightly more body.
