A: Pours a pale tan color, in the glass it is dark brown/black. A white head tops the beer, light freshly fallen snow on coal.

S: Grainy bread, toffee and coffee. Definitely an English Yeast strain. Almost a smokey thing going on in there.

T: Bread and toffee come through. There is a light fruitiness to it, and the finish has a little more of the coffee flavor.

M: Fairly light as far as the body goes, though there is a little creaminess to it. Carbonation is lively.

O: Overall a good example of the style, classic English porter. Tasty.

Misc.: N/A

Poured a dark mahogany semi-clear color with one finger of khaki tan head. Minimal lacing along the sides of the glass. Below average retention.

Smelled sugary malts, roasty malts, toast, nutty, caramel, toffee, cough syrup and faint coffee.

Tasted quite bland. Nutty, toffee, caramel, roasty, toasty and slightly more bitter than the nose.

Medium-to-full body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Soft carbonation. Bitter finish.

Nothing special about this beer. I probably even overrated it a bit. Won’t try it again on purpose.
