Pours an opaque, yet kind of clear-ish on the edges, brown. Just brown. Could use more head, maybe a quarter inch of off-white foam.

Smells faintly of malt, even more faintly of coffee. Could use a more robust aroma.

Pretty light porter. I guess if you're looking to go light on what is typically a heavy style, this might be your baby. Certainly not unpleasant, but not really a malt/flavor bomb, which is what I typically want from this style. A bit of coffee, a bit of chocolate, some sweet malt, a little bit of an off-putting "stale" aftertaste. Eh.

Too thin.
