On-tap at DD Peckers, West Ashley... served in a standard shaker pint...

A: Near black with a creamy, one-finger light mocha head that manages some nice retention and leaves some patchy lace.

S: Chocolate malt and roasty goodness.

T: Very impressed... nice and chocolately, yet not too sweet; good roasted malt profile, yet not acrid; hops provide good balance.

M: Medium-full bodied; a palate coater, yet not sticky; creamy and smooth... mmm.

D: Quite drinkable, although for me, a porter isn't something I'm really into throwing back a lot of... that being said, this is really good stuff and I was impressed.
