A beer for the shifting seasons. Days are shorter, skin is hidden and black beers are here. Like fur between your legs, this roasty, silk charmer is your ticket to seasonal embrace.

This is a very good Porter. Straightforward, no special flavorings, just a good drinking beer. And at 6.0 abv you can have a few. Another solid beer from Half Acre.

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.

Draft served in a tulip glass.

Black with sticky tan foam. Billowing head, slow to deflate. Lasting chunky foam, lacing all around. Looks very nice in the glass, with the halo of intricate lacing.

Aroma is mellow and roasty, some coffee, fairly simple and straightforward.

Flavor is similarly straightforward, light roastiness, some light coffee grounds and unsweetened chocolate. Very smooth feel with a light bitterness. Light bodied, it disappeared pretty quickly. Overall very sessionable, and that's the point. Perfect light porter tailor made for the colder weather.
