On tap at the RR brewpub in Santa Rosa.

A: dark brown, nearly opaque but clear. Somewhat weak head still leaves very good lacing.

Aroma: as expected for style: a role model.

Flavor: refined dark roastd malts; fine London style porter

Feel: smooth; medium body; medium-low carbonation.

O: mainstream but high quality.

First off, I am surprised and delighted to see that this is bottled, or at least once was.

A: Pours a nice ruby red in a small glass, black in a pint glass, with a brown head.

S: Roasted malt, medium-roast coffee and chocolate notes in the nose.

T: Flavor is the same roasted malt, coffee and chocolate (though definitely dark chocolate in the flavor), and it has a great roasty aftertaste.

M: Medium bodied and smoothish.

O: Definitely recommended. A great example of the porter style.
