Pours a black color. 1/2 inch head of a tan color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of sweet malt, roasted malt, slight nut, hint of coffee, slight alcohol, and slight hops. Fits the style of an American Porter. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, slight roasted malt, hint of coffee, hops, hint of yeast, hint of caramel malt, and a hint of syrup. Overall, good appearance, body and blend, and decent aroma.
