Light cola-colored porter. Soft and small head.
Cherried almond, elixiry aromas, nutty and only mildly roasty. Almost a berry flavor.
Almond milk, for sure, and blackberries. More elixiry cherry, like an unsweet amaretto. Nicely malty with a spicy hop backing. Roast heap and milkiness. Smooth mouthfeel with a spicy carb finish.
Uncharacteristically, a porter. But still tasty.

Pint on tap at the Lark in East Northport, N.Y.
Appearance: It's a dark ruby color with a minimal white head that is gone fast. Not as dark as most porters; held to the light it's kind of a clear reddish brown. My friend ordered an Avery brown ale and the waitress had to sniff our beers to tell them apart.
Aroma: I'm not surprised said waitress recognized my beer via sniff. It really smells like almond milk. Blindfolded, I would think it was a glass of almond milk right next to a porter or brown ale. The sweetness of the almond milk dominates, but there's also some roastiness and maybe a touch of (weakish) coffee in the nose. An attractive smell. Alcohol not noticeable.
Taste: Follows the nose. The beer has your typical porter roastiness and chocolatey notes, but the almond milk flavor is very forward. It gets a little less dominant as it warms, but it's definitely aptly named. You see a lot of "wacky flavor" beers out there that leave you thinking, "Why is this named that?" This isn't one of them. Almond milk all the way. It was good; would drink again. Sweet for a porter; could be a dessert beer, though I paired it with a veggie burger and pub fries.
Mouthfeel: Somewhat light of body for a porter. I wouldn't say watery, but definitely on the thin end of the spectrum for a dark beer.
Overall: It's 2014 and of course there's an almond milk beer. But, hey, it's decent. For a slightly high ABV beer, the alcohol isn't noticeable at all. If I were to have this again, it would probably be as a dessert, and it'd make a good one for sure.
