From a bottle into a pint glass chilled from the fridge....
Aggressive pour gives off a nice chocolate brown body with a hefty 2 1/2" tannish head that seems to settle very slowly. Light is very little through the glass. Nice, what I was expecting.
Caramel and rich coffee tones accentuate this one on the nose. Also, nice rich chocolate aroma comes at me also. Very nice on the nose. A bit of grass or other grains also there that come in behind the chocolate, coffee, and caramel. Nice. Could be a bit more roasty though.
Very chocolatey with a bit of biscuits maybe, and a nice roasty coffee blend flavor. Caramel tones are secondary here, but a nice porter flavor. A bit of grassy hops come in to balancet this one on the swallow. Anchor is so solid!
Body is medium, which is a nice change from most more lightening porters that I'm used to. Alcohol is not there like most porters. This one is pretty true to the style, and maybe even better due to the body being a little heavier than usual.
This brew is easily drinkable, and very tasty. It'd make a nice brew to share a 6-pack with a friend, wife, relative, whoever! Well done!
