Meh, Meh, Meh... unfortunately the deep brown body and light milky head are as far as I go in appreciating this beer. The smell leaves me searching, and trying again. Cola, possibly roasted malts and maybe some chocolate summarize my view of the main body of taste of this beer. I am NOT a fan, and found it dificult to finish my 4oz taster... in fact I think I didn't.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

pours out an opaque black colour with a creamy looking thin head. wispy lace. aroma of dark roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate and nougat. the taste pretty much follows suit, with bitter black malts and coffee dominating the flavour profile. the combination of these throws off lots of residual choco notes. there is a hoppy aspect to this porter that seems reasonable and appropriate. a light bitter finish and lingering coffee flavour round things out. classic porter body and acrid mouthfeel. nice drinkability, seems to hit the spot on a rainy June evening.

overall a tasty coffee infused porter, striking a balance between malts and java. i definitely will revisit this in the winter months. recommended.
