Black body, off-white head recedes.

Burned coffee, roasted malts.

The edges are sweet like toffee or molasses but coffee's the focus. Outside of that, nothing pops out at me. The distinct nose does help but taste is sill lacking. Hardly off-putting but hardly distinctive.

Some more density would go a long way.

Big thanks to Jeff for this one. 12oz. bottle into a Cigar City snifter.

Pours pitch black with just the thinnest mocha head that dissipates quickly. Lacing is stringy, spotty and sparse. No legs. Pretty average.

Nose is molasses, chocolate, roasted malt, cocoa and liquorice. Moderately aromatic. Good.

Opens roasted malt, chocolate and cocoa. Coffee and espresso in the middle with some molasses and more dark chocolate towards the end. Finishes roasty with a light tartness. Coffee and chocolate finish. Pretty straightforward but tasty.

Medium bodied with moderate to low carbonation. Slightly prickly but smooth in the mouth and silky going down. Messy finish with a lingering, filmy aftertaste. Solid.

A pretty middle of the road porter that... to its credit, is very quaffable. Certainly worth having and I'm glad I had the opportunity to try it.
