A good brown ale. 1cm head heavy pour recedes quickly. Light chocolate note drinks like a super dark amber (slight light visible through) smells of malt and light chocolate and for some odd reason I smell bacon. Pretty good very slight filling sensation for being so dark and creamy. Overall would buy again but not my preferred porter style.

12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 1/31/2017. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy very dark brown color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, nuttiness, and toasted dark/brown bread; with lighter notes of dark fruit, smoke, herbal, grass, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness. A bit too fruity/yeasty aromas, but not overwhelming. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt and light earthy hop/fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, nuttiness, and toasted dark/brown bread; with lighter notes of dark fruit, smoke, herbal, grass, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness. Light herbal/grassy hop and roast bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, nuttiness, toasted dark/brown bread, herbal, grass, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and light earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; with a nice roast/hop bitter/sweet balance; and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering hop/roast bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready, and lightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 6%. Overall this is a very nice English porter. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and light earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the mildly bitter/drying finish. Nicely rich English malt complexity, light earthy hop balance, and restrained yeast fruitiness. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.

Drank from bottle so reviewing blind. Big Green Man IPA fan so expected no less from the porter. Subtle nutty roasted back of mouth feel with clean finish - very nice.

My second beer from this Brewery. Impressed once again. Dark cola color with a one finger tan head that dissipates quickly with no lacing. The nose is a nice blend of roasted chocolate malt and a nutty element. Taste follows the nose. I like the bitterness balanced with some grassy noble hops. A creamy mouthfeel and medium body. I will place this on tap for the fall season. Recommended.
