Pours with a lavish red-white head. This beer falls within all of my visual hopes. Underneath the generous head lies a reddish-brown brew that promises a wonderful taste. Strawberries run strong with this one, dominating the taste and making a sweet and easy beer to drink. Not bitter at all. This beer is enjoyable, yet ultimately forgettable.

Thanks for the times, Scuttlebutt.

12 oz bottle. no bottling info

The look is the definition of what a porter is supposed to look like. Deep black body with a tan head . Good retention, some lacing .

I noticed the the smell is really dependent on the serving temperature. Right out of the fridge it wasn't prominent at all, but as soon as it warmed up a bit it really took off. Smell is cocoa with roasted coffee beans.

Taste mainly follows the (warmed up ) smell but there is a slight hop presence too

Feel is a little thin for a porter

Overall a decent porter. Not the best, but not the worst, and a good value for the dollar.

Appearance : Pours a light chestnut color out of the bottle which develops into a shade of chocolate brown in the glass. The head is 2 fingers and stable, fluffy, leaving webby lace as it recedes.

Smell : Cocoa powder, roast malts, coffee, Krackle bar. Very inviting.

Taste : More coffee and roast malts than chocolate, which is okay. This is a very smooth porter. A little earth and nice hop bite but not too much. Fairly balanced, if a little staggered.

Feel : Roasted, smooth, lightly creamy, ending with a polite dryness.

Overall : This is a solid porter. I still don't know why this brewery doesn't get the ratings it deserves!

Fine looking porter, but very average. Don't rebuy. OK if no other options.

Dark color.

Vaguely unwholesome smell.

Flavor of mild malt, and long dry, hoppy bitterness.

Mouthfeel is ok.

Overall, meh.

Too dry for the style. Very light-bodied as well. Slightly weird, almost metallic taste at first, although it mellowed as it warmed up. Don't think I'd drink this one again.

Strong metallic taste. A fresh beer so I don't know why.
