On tap at The Happy Gnome in St. Paul served in a snifter.
A - Very dark brown color with a nice white head.
S - Roasted malts are first present with subtle hints of coffee and chocolate and a mild hop sweetness.
T - Roasted malt character is the first taste but as drink this beer you notice hints of coffee, chocolate and eventually a nice smooth hop sweetness will come through.
M - Nice and silky smooth mouthfeel. Very enjoyabel brew with a nice mild hop finish.
D - Very drinkable. This beer drinks very easy and such a nice mouthfeel that you are always left wanting more. A wonderful tasting porter. I hope to see this beer in bottles soon. In my opinion this beer could easily rank up as one of the better Porters out there.

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.
