Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, light chocolate. Taste is roasted malts, chocolate, easy drinking. Feels medium/light in the mouth and overall a pretty good beer, but nothing special.

12/28...on tap in Allentown PA...pours medium dark brown. Foam capped. Coffee notes, chocolate too. Light bodied, and thin mouthfeel. Like the flavor, but like my porters a little heartier.

12 oz bottle, no date.

pours a very dark brown, off-white colored head that fades to a thin ring. no lacing. mild milk chocolate sweet aroma. taste is similar, just a touch of sweetness. no roast flavors at all. medium to thicker body, mild carbonation.

overall - easy to drink, subdued flavors.
