Thanks Sonny for sending this can my way.
A- 12oz can poured to a snifter with a black body and a light mocha head. Texture of the cap is creamy and foamy. Head retention is good as the foam falls to medium ring. Legs are plentiful as lacing forms in some sheets and spots.
S- Roast malts off the top with notes of cocoa, chocolate malts, caramel, toast and toffee. Hints of hops in the backdrop of the malts with dark fruits. Clean ale yeast.
T- As in the aroma, the roast malts are the main thing showing in this beer. Malts lend a portfolio of slightly burnt cracked grains, chocolate, coffee, caramel, toasted nuts and slight sweets. Hints of light fruits, raisin and some light hops that are of the earthy and citrus variety.
MF- Light-medium bodied with a creamy texture that brings a bit of chewiness. Carbonation at a moderate level and it seems to boost the roast flavors. Finishes with some roast and hop bitterness lingering on the taste buds.
Roast-forward Porter that delivers a nice mix of cocoa, coffee and caramel flavors. Good for those looking for a nice dose of those burnt dark grains.

Another 12oz can extra received in a great trade with madnismo... Shared with the usual suspects... Thanks Nathan!
Pours a pretty standard black with hints of garnet escaping from the stem end of my glass... long lasting dark tan head with good sheets of lacing.
Nose is exactly what I expected... nearly perfect bigger porter... sweeter/nutty/bittersweet chocolate.
Flavor mirrors the nose with a drier (than the aroma) palate... still a nice bittersweet chocolate essence... fermented out caramel/toffee... a bit of darker malt with warmth.
Body does not make me think 8%.. surprisingly drinkable.
I really liked this one and normally don't appreciate standard porters.
