Pours a rich dark brown which hints at red in places. Beige head disappears quickly. Smells pungently of smoky chocolate and a peculiar, acrid bitterness...almost a bit like ammonia. (Kind of off-putting.) Very bitter indeed. The sweetness of chocolate pokes through here and there, cutting through the bitterness more as it warms. The finish is nice, though, mellowing out to where more complexity is perceivable. Personally, it's a bit bitter for me. If they'd cut the bitterness by just a hair...

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Pours a slightly transparent cola color with a thin cap of khaki bubbles. Aroma is very faint, smelling of caramel and perhaps chocolate--it's difficult to say. Taste is similar to the aroma, being that it is also thin and one-dimensional. There's some caramel sweetness and a dash of hops to balance, and not much else. I hope this just needs a little time to warm and open up, or else there's not much else to say (as a matter of fact, something akin to burnt marshmallow does manifest after some warming). The body is a shade thin but within the acceptable range for the style.

I'm usually pretty easy to please when it comes to porters, but this falls short of the mark.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

a clean amber/brown hue with 2 fingers of creme colored head and nice lacing for a porter.

smells of nuts, toffee, caramel, chocolate, coffee. the flavor has a vanilla kick up front followed by nuts, dark fruit (almost like a quad), hint of cocoa, and a complex sweet malt bill, which is impressive considering the low abv.

medium body on the lighter side with a decent amount of carbonation.. creamy on the lips and pretty filling for a light porter!

nothing too impressive with this one, but it's a pretty good porter nonetheless.

What a great porter. I'm no beer snob so my descriptions are to be taken lightly. This porter has a good flavor. Notes of smoke, and molasses hit the nose. Strong at first but finishes smooth. Not a bad beer to drink to get started into porters. It was a lot lighter than I anticipated. I'm just getting into ports/stouts and this was a great first pick. I really like the flavor profile and how it finishes. You don't get a sour face or bitter finish, this porter is sweet, but subtle.
