Great look for a porter with a nice brown/creamy head...smells and tastes very hoppy for a porter; nice roasted barley taste with a lingering hop

Deep, dark mahogany color with a huge reddish brown head. Delicious toasty malt aroma, with some dark fruits, chocolate and a little coffee in the background. Smooth, nutty taste that complements the smell, but less pronounced, with just a little warming alcohol. Creamy mouthfeel. Easy drinking. If I ever want a session porter, this is it. Good stuff.

12 ounce bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a very dark, almost opaque, but not quite, black color with a TON of caramel-colored head that slowly dissolved into a lacing of foam that completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Not much in the aroma department, at least compared to the Duck-Rabbit’s Milk Stout, but I do get a few faint notes of roasted malt, brown sugar and a little molasses.

Taste: Much more flavor than aroma. Nice notes of roasted malt and freshly baked dark bread, followed by some coffee, caramel and brown sugar-like sweetness, some slight dark chocolate-like bitterness and finally, some subtle hops.

Mouthfeel: A little chewy, but smooth, especially for a porter, as there’s practically no carbonation what-so-ever. With an ABV of 5.7%, there is no presence of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a pretty good porter. It has some nice flavors of roasted malt, coffee and some caramel-like sweetness that I enjoyed. Definitely worth a try for porter fans.
