S: Sweet milk chocolate and carob, some light roasted malt.
T: Chocolate and mocha flavour, not overally done, a balanced effort, quite tasty.
M: Smooth, creamy, medium-bodied, soft carbonation.
O: A solid porter here, looks like a new one from Alesmith. Well made, an enjoyable pint.

On tap at AleSmith Brewing Company in San Diego, CA.
Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Thin rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and slight char. Taste is much the same with a cocoa flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

On tap at the tasting room.
A: Very dark brown, nearing black, but still clear around the edges. A half finger of fine, tan head with very good retention and some dots and streaks of lacing.
S: Moderate, nice roasted malt melts well with subtle chocolate notes.
T: Again, moderate roastiness, which imparts a sharp aciditiy, cream, light roast coffee. Well balanced. Not getting any chocolate here, though.
M: Medium body, ultra smooth, with medium light carbonation providing some bite.
O: Nice addition to the AleSmith lineup. A very quaffable porter, mellow and has the roasted notes in good balance with the other sweet flavors.
