on tap at the Blue Water in San Diego. pours a deep chocolate brown with amber highlights with minimal head and a soapy rim after a few seconds.
aroma is lightly roasted with a bit of chocolate and vanilla. wonderfully rich in the nose.
taste is more of the same with a supremely roasted character and a rich malty finish of black malts and a bit of nutty warmth on the back end.
mouthfeel is full bodied and malty smooth with a finish that lingers.
drinkability is good. very mellow, easy going and flavorful. a solid porter; quintessential for the style.
Serving type: on-tap

Deep black color with red beams when exposed to light and a thick caramel head with medium retention and leaving laces.
Aroma of roasted malts, cocoa and light milked coffee. Mild, but nice.
Bold but balanced flavor cocoa, coffee, spices, earthy and citrusy hops, some dark fruits, nuts and caramel and roasted malts. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Medium bordering full smooth body with appropriate carbonation.
Superbly balanced porter and very pleasant to drink. Not extremely hopped, but sure more interesting than traditional. Worth trying.
