Not bad at all from A-B. See, they can brew something tasty. It may not be my favorite Porter in the country but it may well be my favorite A-B beer. Though it is hard to say since they are buying up micros I don't even recognize.
Appearance: Pours almost black and barley translucent when back lit - showing a splash of red in the hue. Big creamy beige head leaves loads of lacing plaster to that walls of my glass.
Smell: When I first twisted off the cap I smelled fresh tobacco and burnt malts. the aroma seemed to fade a bit after the initial surge. With some effort I enjoyed the caramel and chocolate and grain and malts in the nose.
Taste & Mouthfeel: Roasty. Very dry around the edge but the syrupy center slides of that keeping a wet slick feel throughout mouth. When the beer first touched my mouth it was dry and when it left it was dry but in the middle is a very wet sticky coffee caramel molasses flavor that is actually quite enjoyable.
Drinkability: As a long-time Guinness fan this porter is in that legue of drinkable. It is not the most progressive porter but it is quite quaffable.
Hope this is helpful.
