Serving type: bottle, poured into mug

A: Pours a hazy deep brown with ruby hues and a thick dark tan head with high retention and significant lacing.

S: Carmel aroma with faint notes of coffee.

T/M: Slight burnt bitter taste with sweet caramel notes as well. Some hints of bittersweet chocolate. Overall, more bitter than sweet. The carbonation is more pronounced than I had anticipated producing a mouthfeel that is less smooth and creamy than other porters I have had. However, its crisp sharp character is not unpleasant and contributes to a dry finish that invites another sip.

O: A very drinkable porter with a pleasant bitter taste. Would pair equally well with fish and chips or a juicy burger.

From a bottle in Charleston, SC, pours as an opaque black with a thick lasting tan head. Taste is quite sweet; lots of malts. Some slight creaminess, but overall a bit thin body for a Porter. Just OK.
