A very strange find at my bottle shop. Never heard of these guys, a very cheesy label, and no notable ABV. Let's go!

A - Wow no head, never a good sign. Color is a very dark chestnut brown with hazy tones.
S+T - Very little smell or flavor. Very watery if any brown malt, a touch of cocoa powder, and a reminiscent of roast. I have a feeling this may be over a year old since it was marked down but I didn't find much sediment. Age doesn't do this beer any good but without any bottled dates its hard to tell when the hell it was made...
M - Very watery at this point it reminds me of Guinness Draft.

Overall looking at it's score even fresh doesn't make for a great beer. Avoid this one if you can a poor rep of a porter.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Better to be shipwrecked on a peninsula than an island, right? Anyway, this stuff pours a deep black-brown topped by a finger of faded khaki foam. The nose comprises roasted malts, toasted rye bread, and funky oak. The taste brings in more of the same, though now the oak is replaced by a cola-like flavor. The body is a very light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a lightly watery feel. Overall, a fairly limp porter, one that's a bit off flavor-wise and a bit too thin for its own good.

(Served in a nonic)

A- This beer pours a dark dense brown body that glows a garnet in the light. There is a bubbly thick ring of foam that last for a good bit and a random racing bubble trails up the side of the glass.

S- This beer has a caramel malt aroma with some darker caramel malt notes underneath. There is a nice richness and depth to the smell.

T- The soft dark toasted malt has a caramel sweetness to it with a watery and flint taste that leads to a clean slightly dry finish.

M- The medium-light mouthfeel has a gentle fizz and no alcohol heat to it.

O- This beer has a nice rich aroma with a complimentary flavor and is a classic brown porter. It has a lot of qualities of a second running beer that make it very sessionable.

look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Very cola in color with an OK head and some thin foam that lasts well after a few sips.

Roasty, and somewhat tart roasted malt and unripened fruit aroma. Pretty yeasty aroma, with some very creamy roasted malt that just doesn't seem right.

Odd roasty character upfront that bitters at the middle and even more so at the finish. Theres this weird creamy flavor and palate that is maybe powdered milk, but just doesn't sit well with me.

I love trying new beers, but this was something I will not try again or recommend to others.

I am not generally a fan of porters, but was pleasantly surprised by this gem. Though it is not perfect, I would certainly drink it again. The porter pours a black color with only a slight head. This yields to a gentle malty aroma which hardly grabs the reader's attention. Initial taste is a mild sweet coffee flavor with hints of malt. The taste is not complex, but it is well balanced. Some porters have little flavor at all, while other try to overcompensate and create an intense flavor. It is smooth and not overly heavy in texture. The aftertaste is pleasantly bitter, but does not take away from the general sweetness of the beer.
