There's no question this is a nitro-tap: the dense brown cream that forms the head takes a full two minutes to develop before capping the dark brown beer beneath it. After it's fully formed and the beer falls slowly down the glass, it remains clinging to it as an almost unbroken sheet to the very bottom.
The main features of this porter are roast and dryness. There's a bit of woodiness and toffee/caramel sweetness to counter a dose of hops stronger than most porters receive but unobtrusive to its character overall. The gently bitter dryness serves to balance very nicely without interfering negatively.
The dry, medium-full body is very smooth. It's not as exceptionally smooth as some nitro beers (surprising, really, given the look), but it's got it.
Serving type: nitro-tap
