Poured from a bottle to a tulip glass.
A: Not much head or lacing to speak of. Dark brown-red in color, transparent all the way through.
S: Best part of this beer, unfortunately. I get a big cocoa/baker's chocolate smell up front, with a little bit of a sweetened coffee smell. None of the herbal hops that were advertised.
T/M: This beer is kind of watery, and maybe I'm partial to stouts, but I've had some really full feeling porters lately that this just doesn't match up to. I do get some toasty coffee and some cocoa notes and the carbonation isn't overkill, but this beer doesn't have much lasting power.
O: Maybe this beer was designed to be a session beer? I can't help but long for creamier, richer, more complex beers like Old Rasputin or Greenman's People's Porter after drinking this beer.
Serving type: bottle
