Looks: Opaque and deep dark brown, nearly black. Half finger of tan head.
Smell: Dark roasted malts, a bit acrid for a porter. Coffee, light weight in the aromatics department.
Taste: Sweet and bright. Coffee, lactic acid citrusy hops that put me in mind of mandarin oranges.
Mouthfeel: Bright and bubbly if a bit aqueous. A bit of a sting on the back end.
Overall: Drinkable and refreshing.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A. Dark brown in color. Can see through if held up to light. One finger tan head that disappears quickly.

s. strong smell of burnt malt

t. Fine malt taste. Nothing special, nothing negative to say. Good flavor.

m. There is too much carbonation in this beer. Hard to get over the bubbly feeling.

o. Good beer. This porter would work well for warm days, as it is a bit lighter.
