22 ounce bomber from State Line Liquors. ($2.69)
This beer poured a very dark brown and burgundy with deep cherry highlights. Almost opaque in appearance. Topped with a beautiful creamy head that has great retention and an awesome “bounce back”. Looks like a new beer after every new pour.

The aroma yields sweet and fruity caramel notes. Dark, rich, toasty and slightly woody.

The taste is rich, flavorful and warming. Nice nutty quality and very tasty. The mouthfeel is light, but not entirely void of malt presence. The flavor and rich qualities more than make up for any lack of body. I think this is an excellent porter.
