Murky chocolate-cherry with pitted sandstone head.
Farmy, smoky roast with dark cherry on the nose.
Bit of black bread up front but cherry cuts in soon, then some white pepper and lemon zest.
Benylin end and tight linger.
Dry, thin, not much cling.

How much is this a porter (like the label says?) Strong yeast, lots of cherry, but only a bit of roast. Kinda thin, sour, balanced and easy but ultimately dull.

A - Dark brown with ruby highlights and a thin tan head that dissipates immediately.

S - Sour cherry, gingerbread, mocha, caramel, cranberry.

T - Tart cherry, roasted malt, oak tannin, chocolate.

M - On light side of medium and well carbonated. Lingering chocolate & tartness.

D - Strange combo of flavors with the high carbonation but it works for me. It is like a dry, tart chocolate cherry soda.
