Picked this up a Macadoodles in Jane, MO
Pours chestnut with 3 fingers of tan head. One of the least black porters I've seen in a while.
Average head retention & above average lacing
S: Roastyness & brown bread
T: Follows the nose, some chicory up front as well, a bit of dryness as well. Roastyness, along with a bit of black cherry, dryness from woody hops & dryness as this warms, just a hint iron lingers at the back of the throat. Finishes with coffee notes, roastyness, carob & dryness
Medium bodied, fairly creamy, thins out some as it warms
A soild, easy-drinking American Porter. All canned offerings from these guys have been on point. Give'em a try...
Serving type: can

A - Poured an opaque, jet-black color with a one-finger,light brown head of foam. It left sudsy light brown lace on the glass.
S - It smelled roasty with some caramel and toffee notes.
T - It tasted of bitterness with a strong roasted malt character. Some toffee and caramel add some sweetness and balance.
M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light to medium bodied ale with a dry finish.
O - This is a pretty nice porter. I really like what Piney Rive is making.
Serving type: on-tap
