On tap at the Ruddy Duck, served in a standard pint glass.
As a note I could takked with the owner and he says this is an American style porter.

A - deep dark brown, nearly black. Very (surprising) dense fluffy 2" head of light brown head. It has staing pour too. Perhaps the best head I've seen on a RD beer to date. Nice looking porter.

S - bitter chocolate, char, roasted malt. The roasted malt dominates a moderate nose. But for RD beers that is quite nice.

T - smooth, creamy and tasty. Not overly complex, but what it does it does well. The bitter chocolate and roasted malt are dominate flavors. Mild hop bitterness lingers briefly on the end. Enjoyable.

M - I really like how this porter drinks. Smooth and rich. Not cloying. Bitter finish but clean. Really well done.

O - a really nice porter overall. Smooth and creamy. Nice bitterness and malt base. Easy to drink, maybe a tad higher ABV than needed but goes down smooth. Definitely a beer that I would not mind having again. One of the top beers from the Duck.

Served at the brewpub in a standard shaker pint. The beer is a brown-black in color with a nice beige head. Deep roasted barley with touches of char and bittersweet chocolate are the standouts here. Middle range caramel sweetness. Earthy hops impart a mild flavor and nicely bittered finish. Medium in body and carbonation, somewhat dense mouthfeel. Enjoyable.
