Pours dark brown with a reddish hue. Huge frothy, beautiful tan head that leaves fantastic lacing.
Sweet honey aromas, and some cooked veggies in the aroma. No roast.
Sweet corn syrup flavors up front, a breath of roast or chocolate. Hard to tell, as it is so subdued. A bit of bitterness in the back of the tongue. Needs more roast.
Full bodied and very sweet. If this beer was drier and turned the roast up 5 or 6 notches, it would be good. As it is, a sweet mess reminiscent of sub par brewpub fare that really turns me off. Not like any porter I've ever tasted.
