3.81/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Tan head. Black in color.
Flavors of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, and caramel. Big malt profile. Has a creamy lactose characteristic as well.
Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Ends a little dry.
A nice porter that was easy to drink. Nothing out of the ordinary but solid.
Serving type: on-tap

Dark brown beer with red highlights. The big, tan head has very good retention and good lacing.
Smells have caramel malts and brown bread. Also aromas of toasted grains.
The roasted malts have some coffee like bitterness in the taste, with notes of cocoa and slight sweetness of molasses.
Mouthfeel is thick, and finishes with coffee flavors and an earthy bitterness.
Overall a good, well-rounded porter that I enjoyed.

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into the only available non-paper vessel, a ceramic mug.
a: Black with a thick tan head which receded to thin surface foam an dense lacing.
s: Slight dark malt.
t: Mild dark sweetness, hints of coffee and dark chocolate and some smoke. Sweet to dry finish.
m: medium with good body.
o: A tasty and easy drinking porter with a slight muskiness reminiscent of old-time taverns. Or am I just imagining the latter? No, and I like it.
