Served in a shaker pint glass at McGee's.

This close to DePaul, my mind immediately thought of the Virgin Mary brewing up a nice porter in her small Middle Eastern kitchen. I've gotta get out more (...or less...). This stuff pours a clear burnt sienna topped by a half-finger of cream foam. The nose comprises caramel, light candied orange peel, dry maple syrup, dried honey, and vague sense of dark-ish fruits in the background. The taste brings in more of the same, with that fruitiness being joined by some mild sourdough, a combination that's not exactly endearing to my tongue. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a slick feel. Overall, a weak little "porter", one that just doesn't work for me. It's the fruitiness, really; it's too out of place here and sticks out too far to be of any help.
