Bottle poured into a pint glass.
The beer pours a nice deep cola brown with hints of red when held up to light. The head was thick, creamy looking with lots of retention and lingered for quite a while. The smell is toasted and roasted grain with a hint of coffee and chocolate. The beer tastes chocolatey and grainy up front with hints of a milky creaminess. The middle rounds out a bit with some cola like flavors and the end finishes burnt, smoky, and crisp. There is just enough hop presence in the flavor to balance everything out and provide enough bitterness. The mouthfeel is nice and creamy yet light. The carbonation is at a good lower to medium level. Okay, this is a fantastic American porter and I have never had it before. This is actually my first try and wow is it ever delicious. I have only had two beers from this brewery but both seem wonderful. I love it.
