BOD 8/29/14. Pours almost black. Above average head volume, excellent retention and lacing. Light nose of roast with hints of dark fruit and chocolate. Medium bodied with a nice slick texture that approaches creamy. Above average carbonation with effervescence from the middle on. The flavor profile is of average intensity, a bit complex and is masterfully balanced. It begins with a blend of roast, dark fruit and dark chocolate that reveal themselves in that order. The roast lingers to the middle where it meets a mild hop bitterness. The finish is a slow fade of roast and hop bitterness over a slightly sweet note. A good laid back porter, but not outstanding.
