My Favorite basic Porter. Very smooth an drinkable. I think it can please the palate of the new and seasoned craft beer drinkers.

Black color with some red highlights and a thick thin beige head with good retention.
Aroma of coffee, licorice and creamy chocolate.
Flavor of cola, coffee, herbal and citrus hops, dark fruits including plums, ash, spices, nuts and cocoa. Very dry and roasted aftertaste.
Light to medium creamy body with mild carbonation.
Excellent porter, great complexity and tuned up the American way.

A - Rich creamy head. Head is brown in color and dissipates slowly. Beer is a very dark brown/red, almost black. 4.25/5

S - Toasted wheat bread. Dark chocolate. Espresso. Vanilla. 4.25/5

T - Caramel and toasted bread right off the bat. Then comes espresso, followed by a slight grassy hop and a dark/bitter chocolate finish. Slight lingering bitterness. Grainy. 4/5

M - Somewhat chewy. Heavy body. Moderate carbonation that causes a slightly dry finish. 4.5/5

O - Aroma is slightly more interesting than the actual flavor but great beer all around. Reflects the style nicely. 4.25/5
