A-Black in the glass, but clear amber brown when pouting.

S-Chocolate and some coffee dominate with a little bit of roasted malt.

T-Starts with a nice chocolate flavor and a nice bit of coffee. Some brown sugar and roasted malt as well.

M-Lighter, not much carbonation and a tad watery.

O-The flavor is good but the watery mouthfeel detracts.

Thanks to allisonmichelle for sending this one over as an extra

A: Pours an opaque black with 3 fingers width of tan colored head. Head dissipates down fairly slowly and leaves a good amount of lacing. 4.25

S: Semi-sweet cocoa, blonde roast coffee, lactose-like heavy cream. Straightforward, but just what a basic porter should be IMO. 4.25

T: Similar too, but not as good as the aroma. Decent amount of black coffee bitterness, lactose, cream, and subtle chocolate. 4

M/D: Medium body, carbonation higher than I like in the style, drinkability is good. 3.75

O: Pretty good standard porter. Not mind blowing, but certainly above average. 4

Tasted from can. Possibly my favorite straight porter of all time. Creamy mouthfeel. Fantastic balance and a long, interesting finish. Highly recommend.
