Appearance: black coffee body with a light beige ½ finger head

Aroma: typical porter; coffee, chocolate, and toasted grains; very light overall

Flavors: follows the nose and throw in a slight nutty note, dark caramel, toasted sugars, with a light hoppy finish

Mouthfeel: low carbonation, medium body feel, light flavors, a touch of hoppy spice on the finish, easy drinking porter, dry, balanced

To the Point: nothing special; a serviceable porter;

Got a growler from Dark Horse the last time I was around.

A: Very dark brownish/black with thin white/tan head. (my pore was bad, could have had a thick inch head if I had done it right)

S: Chocolate, roasty character

T: A mix of chocolate, maltly goodness, and a great roasted flavor. Ends with a great slight bitterness from the grains.

M: great level of carbonation, with a wonderful bitterness

D: I am hoping that I do not finish the whole growler tonight, but hell that is just a good reason to make the trip right.
