Poured into a pint glass from a 22 oz bomber.

Really noticed a roastiness, almost like roasted caramelized vegetables. Tasted more alcoholic than the 6.5%. It's hard to notice the chocolate.

The flavor of this beer enhanced the otherwise odd taste of Lays Cappuccino Potato Chips.

Overall good but not great.

Slumbrew Porter Square Porter has a thin, beige head, a very dark, almost black, brown appearance, and slight lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of chocolate, milk, burnt malt, and a bit of acidic. Taste is of sugar, milk, chocolate, acidic bitterness, char, and dark-roasted malt. Mouthfeel is fairly heavy and velvety, and Slumbrew Porter Square Porter finishes semi-dry, easy drinking, and not at all alcohilic.
