a bit generic, but a nice dark porter exhibiting the roasty side of the malt spectrum, rather than the chocolate one. its light in body maybe even thin for the style, but has a great grain depth, ranging from coffee bean to ashy charred wood. coffee is the most dominant flavor, low acidity but plenty of roast and bitterness too. the finish is quick though, maybe a little burton ale yeast or something, a little character there. the body is a little on the thin side for me, but it lets me drink a bit more of it. carbonation is also right where it should be, medium and relaxed for the style. gummy finish after the swallow that i dont really love, but i would happily drink more than this one bottle if i had it.

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.
