Bottle poured into a pint glass

Three finger tan foam cap settles into a thick sudsy lid with plenty of lacings covering the alls of the glass.Impenetrable chocolate brown darkness will not light pass through the glass.

Aroma of roasted coffee beans with malty sweetness

Medium mouthfeel, lighter than other porters. Subtle carbonation. Roasted malt , roasted coffee with a slight toffee taste and no bitter aftertaste. Velvety smooth. Quite quaffable and delicious.

This Porter is good! no doubt these guys put some time in to make this brew. That said the mouth feel for me was a little thin. I am of course comparing this to Everette which is Legendary. All in all this beer holds it's weight with a good roasty aroma and taste. If you like porters this beer is worth the jingle.

Bottom Line: Porter Lovers unite!
