Dark but light enough for Amber to shine around the edges of the glass.. A/T feels more a mix between an Amber and porter.. caramel, slightly roasted malt, earthy herbal tea bitttnerness.. Good beer glad I have five more.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle to pint glass.

A: Very dark brown to black, 1/2 finger tan head.
S: Dark chocolate, sweet malt, vanilla, coffee.
T: Toasty malts give the taste of coffee. Slight vanilla taste. Some dark chocolate. Sweet and slightly tart.
M: Medium mouthfeel.
O: Toasty, with nice flavor. Will be getting a six pack of this soon.

If I had my eyes closed I could not tell it was a porter. Plain.

Got as a gift from a friend. Served at 10deg C in a tulip

A- Opens really well and pours a nice light brown head that stays for a bit before settling to a film. VERY dark. Almost black. Unheard of in a porter

S- Pretty good. Good coffee and smoke

T- A touch of smokiness. Good coffee and some chocolate. Nice brew all around.

M- Thin and dry as a porter should be.

O- I like this one. Best porter I ever had. Will buy again

Food Pairing

This wonderful brew went fantastic with...... BBQ'd T bone steak with baked beans on the side and buttered bread

Enjoy!!
