Reviewing from notes, on tap at Gabe's
A: pours a nice deep brown color with about a quarter inch of head after the bartender poured some head off and continued to pour more beer.
S: Roasted coffee and chocolate malts, balanced with mild hop bitterness
T: the roasted malt character hits the tongue with sweetness initially. The sweetness is not cloying but very nice. There is a hint of bitterness to balance
M:full bodied beer, little carbonation
Overall, I really enjoyed this beer.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours an incredibly dark brown color, a few shades off of black. Crowned by a finger-thick creamy, beige head that leaves plenty of lacing behind. There appears to be a considerable amount of carbonation present. Very appealing.
Sweet, dark cocoa nibs and molasses mixed with hints of star anise and cola. Nicely toasted.
A fantastic clash of sweet and bitter. Upfront, you're greeted by rich, toasty chocolate notes. Rye pushes its way in with a wave of bitter coffee. Very malty and lightly hopped with herbal notes breaking through and peat on the finish.
Quite thick, almost chewy consistency. Highly carbonated. Semi-sweet finish.
A very good offering from a very small brewery in St. Paul, MN. Plenty of character can be found in this distinct English Porter. Worth picking up.
