3.8/5 rDev -0.5%
Undated 12 oz bottle at 35 degrees into 12 oz standard pint
Aroma - weak aroma of roasted malt
Head small (2 cm), light brown, creamy, slowly diminishing to 2 mm layer
Lacing excellent covers the entire surface
Body very dark brown, chill haze
Flavor begins with roasted malt and sweet molasses; no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate medium to full, creamy, soft carbonation
I last had this in 2008 and don’t remember the circumstances, but I will upgrade the rating in my database. This is a very pleasant porter with a definite molasses flavor and sweetness but is not cloying. The appearance is enticing, the aroma is weak, and the flavor and palate are very good.

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.
