12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A - Great tan head holds a solid cap. Dark brown in color but easily transparent showing ruby highlights with perfect clarity. Some spots of lacing down the glass.

S - Chocolate is pretty mild, touch of coffee roast. Mellow caramel tones. Not necessarily jumping from the glass.

T - Nice layer of rich caramel malt almost nearing some raisin qualities. Smooth chocolate is mild here as well. Barely sweet throughout. Leaves with a toasty flavor.

M - Medium-full body, medium-light carbonation, semi-sweet.

O - Very balanced for the style. Looks great, lacks some oomph from aroma. Taste is unoffending staying very drinkable considering a little fuller body. Good for a try, perfect "drink a whole 6-pack" type of beer.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

My second beer of this title, making my list just a bit more train-oriented than before. Sheldon would be pleased. Anyway, this stuff pours a dark black-brown topped by a finger of khaki foam. The nose comprises blackened pretzel (complete with a light coating of milk chocolate) and mild toast. The taste holds notes of rather mild roasted malts, toast, and very light chocolate powder. It all comes together in a strangely perfume-y aftertaste. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a pretty mediocre and forgettable porter.
