Served on tap at the Oak Park Micro Brew Review. Pours a blackish brown with minimal head and visually matches style. The features heavy smoke and robust roasted barley. Mice aromatic roasted notes here with some chocolate and oats to round things out. Taste is smokey as well with a very mild malt sweetness. Lots of flavor here with a dry and roasted finish. Mouthfeel is medium with somewhat high carbonation for the style. Overall, a nice robust porter with plenty of flavor and a high level of drinkability.
