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.

Bitter porter. Has feel like high alcohol but is not.

Very bitter for a porter, roast grains bringing some stout like bitterness, almost black body supports a fluffy beige head. Burnt toast aroma leads into full on roast bitterness, overall body belies somewhat watery mouth feel

Pours a beautiful, dark, opaque brown with a creamy looking, though not long-lived, tan head.
Smell is roasted & toasted malts, some coffee, an astringent note with a touch of green wood. Well balanced.
Taste is coffee and burnt malts forward, a bit of the astringency and not a lot more.
Medium-ish body, lighter effervescence that tickles the whole surface of the tongue. Drying, fairly clean finish for the style. A little too burnt coffee for me, could definitely benefit with a bit of complexity.
