Pour is quite cola-like.. very dark with some reddish areas where the light passes thru.. thin off-white head. Not much viscosity. As a stout it would be a disappointment but it is a porter so I suppose that maeks it fairly good for its style. Not much aroma at all to pick up on, only the faintest hint of malt. Flavor is malty and dark.. not much honey characteristic, in fact I would never guess it was supposed to be a honey porter unless told so. Mouth is sort of thin, bordering watery.. definitely not very full-bodied. It drinks easy but its not very flavorful or too impressive so I wouldn't buy it again unless having no other real options.
