Pours a very dark brown and leaves a great lacing around the glass. The nose is incredible. You pick up the scent of chestnuts, and hints of chocolate, coffee and molasses. The smell is out of this world. I was surprised that the mouthfeel felt a bit thin, but I liked it that way. The taste was solid as well and was very malty, just like a porter should be. This is another great into to dark beers for those who are only using to trying a Kolsch, Pilsner, etc.

Again, I think this is smart marketing for a new brewery to appeal to the masses. OBH is attracting a new crop of beer drinkers that may not usually drink craft beers or any beer whatsoever. All of the beers appeal to males and females alike. Looking forward to their future brews.
