a – dark malt with toffee. roasty. slight nuttiness as it warms. little hops.

a – thick cappuccino head lingers and laces. dark brown with garnet when held to light.

f – roasty with malt sweetness. chocolate & espresso. balanced. picking up astringency from pecans but not in a bad way as it helps to balance the malt.

m – creamy. med-heavy body. excellent carbonation.

o – excellent robust porter with pecans used to good effect. nice looking beer. outstanding flavor and mouthfeel leave me wanting more.

On tap at Umami Mia Pizzeria in Austin TX.

A: Came in a pint glass. Looked like a porter, what little head it has vanished quickly.

S: Typical for a porter, roasted coffees, chocolates. No memorable hop smell.

T: Well done toast with slight cacao bitterness, little bit of coffee and faint hint of nuttiness presumably the pecans but nothing jumps out. The different flavors do swirl around for a second, making for an interesting moment. The menu said 30 IBU and for sure there was little hop bitterness there.

M: A bit watery for a porter, was hoping for more malts.

O: A very unoffensive porter but not highly memorable. If you give it to me I won't complain but next time I'll try something different. Not a good complement to pizza.
