A good light bodied porter, has enough of a roasty taste to overcome the lack of mouthfeel

Look. Good rich dark mahogany, nice light tan medium head.
Smell. Beery, maybe a bit of chocolate, slightly to the crisp hop side.
Taste. Toasty, puckery, dry, some hidden malts.
Mouthfeel. Medium body, good sparkle, little, bit of puckerchew and dry hops at the end.
Overall. I prefer a heavier body and more malt character, but OK as a dry porter.

Very pleasing. With coffee and chocolate nuances. Smooth with little alcohol presence. Slight hop finish.

L=dark, oily brown/black
S= Malty chocolate
T=thin bitter chocolate, malt is not very prominent - a slight finish of sour lemony/grapefruit...
F= not a very lingering feel at all. Vapid and thin.
O= despite not being a very memorable porter - it isnt bad and would certainly get it again.
