Good porter, or stout, depending on how you interpret the label. This is sturdy, and tasty with lemony hops, and some ginger/nutmeg spice. Is this spiced? It certainly tastes that way. But, I don't know. The background flavor is like spent coffee grounds. That sounds worse than it is. The feel suffers from chewiness and slightly thin carbonation. This beer is unremarkable as a stout or porter except for the interesting spicy flavors.

AP: Pours pitch black, with a thin tan head with just a outlining ring of retention, with barely any retention. AR: Slight roast, with a predominance of bitter chocolate and dark yeasty bread. TA: Same bittering baking cocoa, buttered dark toast and earthy hops to finish. MF: Decent carbonation, not overly creamy. Slightly abrasive. OV: Easy go-to for a hoppy Porter with caffeinated chocolate tendencies.

To me this is a hoppy porter, not quite intense enough roasted malt as most stouts. The carbonation is a bit coarse, not creamy at all. Otherwise this is a vaery good beer ito those who appreciate the style.
