A dark brown beer with subtle reddish highlights that’s nearly but not quite totally opaque. Lighter than most porters, in fact. Nice creamy head with decent retention; good lacing remains.

Subtly smoky in both aroma and taste; this aspect doesn’t overwhelm the other flavors, instead blending with the roasted and lightly sweet notes very well. There are also touches of coffee and bittersweet chocolate. Faintly bitter and floral hop presence comes out mostly in the finish. I actually wanted a bit more of everything and found it just a little too light in the end flavor-wise.

Easy to drink, with a moderately creamy, medium-thin body and measured carbonation. A smoked beer for those who are a bit smoke-averse.

I picked this one up at Skibbo's on East Tremont in the Bronx last week and let it age for a month which is long time for me. Probably should not have had Stone's Russian Imperial Stout prior. Nevertheless, poured into pint glass to show off on on black with brown residue tints on the side. Head was fairly big with solid lacing that drooped off after 2-3 quafs. Nose was on on strong roasted malt and hopearth secondary aroma. The taste was very pungent but not overpowering becuase my pallet still has the RIS hanging around. Mouthfeel was thin and sharp bitterness from the hops. Good heavy porter.

Poured from a bottle into a glass.

This beer poured a deep dark brown and had a nice two finger tan head.

Smells of roasted coffee and a nutty malt.

Rich coffee right up front then fades to the sweet roast. This has some complex undertones that are hard to identify. I'm guessing that the smoked flavor.

Overall this is a good porter, worth trying and I would drink again.
