Nice dark, dark ruby coloring with a nice small creamy head and a bit to much fizz.
A touch of chocolate on the nose, it's dominated by a burnt malt scent. The chocolate and late on caramel scent are weak, as is the malt and gives to a weak aroma overall.
Feeling some cocoa and caramel tones but the burnt malt wins out in taste. Its followed by an almost watery feel. As for the taste, it's a nice Porter in line with the genre but the residual watery mouthfeel is a bit distracting.

This is a pretty smooth and nice drinking porter. I feel like it's definitely better as it's warmed up. The one thing I dislike about a lot of the porters that I try is that the flavor profile drops off so fast. This is not like that at all. Super smooth and great character. Even has a little vanilla in there it seems. A great drinker. Could easily go for several of these in one sitting.
