I got this one in the 2007 brewmaster's collection. It seems to have replaced the hefeweizen that I hated so much last time, and I suppose it's a welcome change.
Here we go...
Appearance: Dark, pretty average looking. Thin white head is about one to a half finger thick and dissipated within a couple of minutes.
Smell: I like the smell. It reminds me of bread baking. It's yeasty, bready, and has a hint of honey character. This would go well with a good pizza.
Taste: There's not a whole lot of taste. The beer has a little bit of grainy darkness from the malt, but not nearly the level of most stouts. There's also a faint bitterness as the beer warmed up, but it's hardly noticeable.
Mouthfeel: Thin and watery. I would expect a little more out of a porter. There's just a tiny bit of graininess from the roasted malt, but you'd miss it if you weren't expecting it.
Drinkability: This beer is pretty drinkable. It's also pretty average.
Serving type: bottle
