12 oz bottle into a nonic pint glass.
A: Pours a very dark burnt sienna color. It's not completely opaque at all, like many porters tend to be. The head is a one finger offwhite shade that fades into a thin film with some collaring around the edge of the glass.
S: A fairly chocolaty porter; it's more dry than milky sweet, though. Some nuts, dark unroasted malts, and hazelnut coffee tie these qualities together. Not particularly grabbing or expressive, but good.
T: Even drier than the nose suggested. There are some roasted nuts to start, some lactose cream flavors in the midtaste, and a finish of coffee with just a hint of dry chocolate. I also notice a twinge of finishing hops; not just in the light bitterness, but with the mildly acidic and mineral-esque kick in the aftertaste, as well.
M: Light bodied, with good carbonation, and a crisp, dry finishing kick. About what I expect from a porter.
O: For better or worse, it's a standard porter. Granted, it's a standard porter that's executed quite well; however this lacks many qualities that would enable it to stand out from its brethren. It's one to consider purchasing, but perhaps not one to seek out.
