This beer poured a dark cocoa brown/black color and when held to the light had edges of yellow and ruby hues. I was surprised on how dark this beer was would have figured it for a stout more then a porter, very little light passed through the light. It was crystal clear and well carbonated. The head produced was light and creamy as it was poured, its color was a light cocoa brown in the center and became lighter almost beige as it reached the edges. The texture was slightly sticky, pillow soft, had some density and was about 1 finger deep, but not very lasting, it quickly fell to a slight ring on the edges. No real lace seemed to be present. The aroma was not overpowering, rather light, I nosed light roasted malts and grains cocoa powders, some coffee grains, hints of a grapefruit citrus hop, which came out more as the beer warmed but most of the hop aroma was of a piney nature. The flavors were slightly more pronounced then the aroma but was rather laid back compared to other beers in this style. Roasted malts and coffee dominated the tastes, also noted were cocoa/chocolate, that slight grapefruit bite, pine tree and some earth tones became noticable as it warmed and ended on the back of the throat with a creamy roasted malt flavor. The aftertaste was mainly short lived and filled with roasted malts. The body was light to light medium in the mouth. The over all impression was a nice drinkalble beer, creamy and smooth, went down easy. The combination of roasted malts and hops seemed to balance nicely, with the malt taking the forefront. It is an easy drinkable beer, before I noticed the growler was gone, a good session beer IMO. Only thing I wished was that the aromas were more pronounced and it was a little more fuller in the pallet.

Poured into shaker pint

A: Almost black with hints of mahogany color when held to light. Creamy, fine and tan, 2 finger head that lasts.

S: Coffee-caramel notes with hints of toast and raisins.

T: Get through the super creamy head and taste mild coffee and cream flavors which don’t really last. Hints of caramel malt and earthy tones.

M: Mildly dense in the mouth with very little carbonation.

O: An easy drinking porter that is quite sessionable; I could easily knock back a few of these and be content. It’s not the boldest beer out there, then again they do label it a “cream porter”.

Holy hell do I like this beer. I had it at the America Hotel in Lima, NY. They have it on tap. The look of it in the glass is just great. Nice dark, thick head that stays with you for a good long while. The color is rich and dark and very pleasing to the eye. It smells amazing. Nice roasty,chocolate, sweet smell to it. I liked the first one so much I had two more. lol. Mouth feel is heavy, but it's a porter, I'd be confused if it wasn't heavy. It's nice and smooth going down. Overall I think this is a very drinkable beer, and highly recommend it. I also recommend hitting the American and having a few pints and some of their delicious food.
