A - Pours like cream soda. Very strong carbonation, and decent lacing. No foam retention is noted. Very clear look.

S - At first there was no scent of anything of note. As the beer warmed some smoky notes and roasty cocoa hit the nose.

T - Hmmm... This one is at best a gateway craft. There is some notes of chocolate and caramel, but the majority of the flavor seems artificial.

M - On one hand the beer is sessionable. But the high carbonation and slight aftertaste would make you wonder why you would want another. Mixed bag, and likely not a good choice for a diehard craft drinker.

O - I'm giving this an extra strike for falsely throwing the word "porter" on the label. Its clearly a brown ale, and not a good one at that.

A- poured a oak brown color with 1finger foam. Minimum lacing.

S- heavy cinnamon and brown sugar. Smell reminded me of roasted cinnamon nuts at Christmas. Not getting any sort of brownie scent at all. No chocolate or coffee scents at all.

T- first note was cinnamon. Very heavy on the cinnamon (too heavy for me.). Very sweet. No traditional porter flavors at all. A harsh artificial taste is there as well. Like a bad diet cookie.

M- medium with a very short finish

O- honestly, one of the most unpleasant beers I 've had in a long time. The artificial note on the end is not appetizing at all.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Special? Anyway, this stuff pours a clear sunset amber topped by a finger of glowing khaki foam. The nose comprises cinnamon, cocoa, vanilla bean, and a kiss of nutmeg. The taste generally brings in more of the same, but replete with a general graininess/wheatiness that threatens to drown out nearly all else, though a few sprinkles of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cocoa powder occasionally appear. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a slick feel. Overall, a weak porter and a sad excuse for a brownie-flavored anything. Quite the letdown.

I was hoping for more from this beer....unfortunately my high expectations werenot met. Kudos to the person that defined this beer as a brown and not a porter. The beer poured a clear deep rich brown with thin slightly off white head that is leaving some lacing. The smell is filled with breaded malts with hints of cinnamon. The cinnamon dominates the taste and I'm not picking up alot of chocolate or brownie. Define base of bread/yeast malt present. The mouthfeel is kind of lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall the beer is ok...not a huge fan of cinnamon....I have definitely had better browns than this.
