A bit annoyed bc I ordered the IPA and they asked me what I ordered multiple times and still gave me the wrong beer. Pour is dark brown with a very light tan head. Nose is strong roast with some dark malt and a hint of chocolate. Strong carbonation and a medium slick body. Taste is a bit less roasted with a touch more rich complex malt. Not really sweet with some dry bakers chocolate. Finish thins a hint.

growler

Pours black, half inch of pillowy off-white head dissipates slowly to a bit of a film.

Smells of cocoa, woody malts, caramel, and hints of vanilla and coffee.

Brown sugar and cocoa malts mix with some woody bitterness and a hint of vanilla.

Fuller body with light carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

Really tasty porter, impressive flavor and body in a lower abv package. This is said to be the first beer Roundabout brewed. I was told this serving was from the second batch ever. It's quite good and well worth trying.

Serving type: growler
