Definitely not like any porter I've had before, this ale pours more of a caramel colour than a solid black, with a one finger head that quickly goes away. Smells of dark bread and noble hops. Taste is sweet at first, with a finishing bitterness of hops and chocolate. Mouthfeel is thin and carbonated. Not a bad beer, but not a good one either.

Serving type: bottle

500 mL can in recent mixed pack (don't have the exact date, but fresh.)

A - Medium brown with a small, rapidly dissipating and almost white head. On the pale side for a porter but not shocking.

S - Sweet malts, hint of roast malt, and perhaps (?) a tiny bit of noble hop aroma.

T - Massive worty sweetness, what the heck? The finish is a little better, with mellow chocolate malt and a smallish dose of hop bitterness.

M - Pretty thin, above-average carbonation.

O - Not at all to porter style. A mediocre, overly sweet brown ale that doesn't really come together.

Serving type: can
