Pours a dark brown color with a tan creamy head. Smell is roasted malts, dark toast just the slightest dark chocolate bitterness... Taste is roasty and toasty nice carbonation on the back end with a pleasant finish. I tend to be a bigger fan of browns then most at least from the reading I've done and this is a nice one.

I asked the bartender at the brewery if this was a Porter. He replied, "it's an ale."

I said, "Porters are ales."

His response, "I guess you could call it a Porter."

Brown color where light does pass through the center of the glass. Some ring lace to the otherwise minimal head.

Lots of milk chocolate aroma. Sweet and dark. Some caramel.

Taste mimics the nose, perhaps with a little more mocha. Above average body with a below average level of carbonation. Smooth. There's some sweetness and an element of liqueur to the taste.

Recieved as an extra in a trade and poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Poured a nice dark brown hue that is clear with a nice bright light, one finger light brown head fades slowly to leave very light lazing. Creamy.

S - Aromas of sweet roasted malts, light darkness, faint milk chocolate.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, light darker sweet roasted malts, mocha chocolate going on. Very nice chocolate note.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, faintly smooth.

O - Overall, a solid brown ale. Alcohol nonexistent, very drinkable.
