Look- It has a coca cola color with very little tanned head.
Smell- Light roasted grains, some raison, light coffee tones.
Taste- Light sweetness, The roasted malts come thru, lite mild coffee flavor, lite dark fruitiness.
Feel- Light carbonation, not overwhelming.
Overall- This beer seems ok. Not overwhelming. I guess it would be a good gateway porter/stout. It's a nice session porter, I would go out of my way for it!!!! Cheers!!

Dark beer that lets a bit of light through at the edges. There is a very light tan head that fades but still clings to the edge of the glass. The nose is nice roasted malt and a hint of coffee. The taste has a nice sweetness and very little char or bitterness. There is a bit of a grain flavor and some bitter coffee. Nice creamy, medium mouthfeel. Pretty solid porter.

Love porter, my favorite style lets give this one a whirl. Popping the top I get a waft of some chocolate and roasted malts. Pours to a deep jet black letting no light through with a thin micro-bubble head. On the taste this brew has a godd mouthfeel up front followed wit a nice deep well roasted and semi-sweet chocolate flavor that rolls to the middle of the tongue and gets only slightly bitter and dry on the aftertaste. A solid dark porter that lives up to the description on the bottle of a "rich dark ale". I would repeat this one, no doubt.
