A - Nice dark color with a lager like texture. Gives a decent head at first pour that quickly disappears.

S - Pleasant coffee and chocolate aroma, but hard to find. Not very noticeable nor long lived.

T - Crisp, clean, a lot lighter than one would expect. Decent malt flavors with hint of coffee and chocolate.

M - Again, rather light for a dark brewed beer, was expecting a thicker feel.

O - A good dark beer for the price, but was expecting something more.

The Porter pours with a nice creamy beige head, but it goes away fairly rapidly. As the foam dissipates, there is moderate lacing on the sides of the glass. The color is a dark chocolate brown, the brew is opaque.

For aroma, there is not much there. You get the roasted malt that you would expect from a Porter, but it is very soft.

As for taste, this beer gives the bare essentials of a Porter. There are roasted malt flavors, and a slight hint of hops. Not really a complex brew at all. The biggest disappointment was that it felt watery, where I would have expected it to be more full bodied.

Overall, let's put this in perspective...We're talking about a beer that sells for $6.99 a six pack. This Porter is certainly head and shoulders above a Bud or Miller Lite, it's just not a great Porter. Whereas I found the Lager to be almost undrinkable, this one I can handle. I could see myself picking this one up again, if I was on a strict budget.

not to much aroma . good beer but could be better needs more character. It is smooth but more of a lager dark beer. The apparence was dark but very close to a lager. overall worth trying but not somethnig really that special. could not taste the alcohol but i have had way better porters. It had taste of alot of water and vey little coffe beans typical dark beer more of a weak porter
would not buy again
