Pours a really dark brown with a tan two-finger, fluffy, foamy head.
Malty, caramel, and bread aromas.
Wow, a really great grainy, bready flavor. I'm not used to drinking a lot of porters, and it's not really sweet like I expected. This beer is more about the "grainy" taste. You can really taste the grains.
A medium body carries this beer well. And it's pretty dry for the most part, with some slight bitterness on the back end.
I've been turned off of porters for a while, after drinking some subpar examples. I think this one has turned me back on to the style.
