12oz bottle drank out tha bottle.
Had this at a place where the only other choices were tecate, old milwaukee, and lime-a-rita. That said, this really did the trick. Light powdery cocoa in the nose and taste, some stale malts, light but not watered down.
Would buy it at a bargain..

Pours about the same color as a cola into my pint glass. Thin tan head quickly fades with no lacing.
scent is a little roasty, coffee like with a touch of chocolate and a little funky musty scent.
Mouthfeel is thin, with an odd carbonation for this type of beer.
Flavor is fairly smooth, very mild roasted coffee and chocolate. Very mild. Some would say watered down, I just think very mild.
Dry finish, no out of place or obnoxious flavors.
I have had much better porters, but I have also had much worse.
My wife brought home a sampler, and this was one of them. Like it or not, I have another to drink.
As a note, I poured this one at about 50 degrees or so, as I was not patient enough to let it fully cool.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Central Waters shaker pint.
Bottle glass brown liquid, very dark but still clear, topped by a thin smattering of khaki foam. Light sandy lacing; average retention.
Cocoa and coffee in the nose.
Faintly sour palate entry with roast barley and a touch of specialty malt as well. Mild clean bitterness from hops and a touch of chocolate and loam in the finish.
Relatively light-bodied and perhaps a little thin and lacking carbonation, but not terribly so.
Unexceptional but perfectly drinkable porter, free of off notes.

A- Red-cocoa with a thin off white head. Retains at a slick. Minimal lacing.
S- Pleasant milk chocolate and toffee aromas. A bit of cherry as well.
T- Not as well rounded as the nose. It has some general moderately toasted malts, but there is minimal dark roasted flavors. A bit of fruit.
M- Light body and too aggressive of carb.
O- This beer was kind of mediocre for me. The nose is nice, but it needs to have a bit more roasted flavor for it to be better. I'm kind of disappointed.

Pours out really thin and not very dark. Looks like a watery cup of coffee. Amlost no bubbles and no lacing.
Charred malts hit the nose first then some yeast burn and slight hop. Chocolate and coffee but faint, very faing.
Taste is watered down malts followed by caramel and coffee.Very little raisin bread here.
Mouthfeel is way too clean for a porter.
Overall, it's not a bad taste , just a weak taste. All of the flavors are here, just not as much of them as I would like.

A - Looks damn well like a stout coming out of the bottle, albeit without the same viscosity. Black as night with a caramel head.
S - Light notes of spice and chocolate, with molasses creeping in at the back. Not overt whatsoever, very faint.
T - The greatest disappointment: taste. It tasted like a very lightly malted water really. Almost nonexistent notes of molasses and chocolate on the back half with an almost salty aftertaste. Unfortuately, the presence of the taste was somewhere between a 1 and 2 on a scale of 10.
M - The mouthfeel was light and smooth but again like water, and I expect something a little more hearty from a porter.
O - In my opinion this beer drank like water with very little added. The only real plus was that all alcohol was masked; however, at the price of flavor I feel it was not worth the sacrifice. Maybe give it more time or something to make it bolder and it could be solid.

Pours a jet black color with tan shades when held to the light. A very thin white head is created but dissipates within seconds of pouring out.
Smell does not have much going on. A bit of a strong chocolate smell, but nothing else to the nose.
Taste is okay. Some fresh cocoa in this porter, but much like the nose, there is not much to the taste besides that.
Mouthfeel is nice. The best part of this beer. Smooth with a nice medium thickness.
Drinkability is not the worst. I could drink a good amount of these but not special enough to keep drinking. Not terrible, but not great either.
