Notes/Commercial Description:
The shift is upon us. Days are shorter, skin is hidden and black beers are here. Our first toss into the winter stew is Chub Step Porter. Like fur between your legs, this roasty, silk charmer is your ticket to seasonal embrace.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours dark brown/black with a rather noticeable red hue when in light and a beige(?) thin head.

Notes of chocolate, wood, and rather muted hints of dried fruit.

The dried druit aspect (I suspect prunes) is definitely more noticeable and balanced with silky smooth chocolate.

Mouthfeel is silk like that does not disappoint.

Overall, a mighty fine porter, but seems rather toned down from what I think it could be.
