Pretty straightforward, lighter version of the style. Pours dark but the light gets through. Mouthfeel is not as thick and creamy as most. Taste is roasty malts, bit of chocolate, and a hint of hops. In a blind taste test, I might identify this as what is often labeled a black ale. Overall, though it's not big and bold, it's highly drinkable and I really enjoyed it.

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.
