From the can poured into a pint glass, the mouthfeel was rather thin, but overall this is a quality porter with a nice lactose-sweetness to accent the maltiness of the brew.

Rather sweet, a tad watery, some chocolate, roasted malt, wee bit of dark fruits, some coffee.

poured cold from a 2 week old growler, near black to a surly darkness 10oz snifter with a foamy, finger and a half, tan head

aroma of cocoa, coffee and graham crackers(?)

semi sweet chocolate, creamy espresso roast, and a week bit of smoke.

light bodied, medium carbonation, smooth and creamy, semi-sweet.

overall: good, not great. a porter i'll grab once or twice when it's available.
