From a 12 oz can.

Appearance: Quite nice looking clear red-brown body is notably lighter than expected. A semi-durable beige head that leaves ample sticky lacing.

Aroma: appealing, with lots of dark roasted grains and chocolate and some spicy hops.

Flavor: Dark roasted grains dominate; subtle hops although this is mildly bitter overall. Lingering, chocolate and dark bread in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: clean. with a slightly dry finish. The body is smooth and full. Near medium carbonation.

Overall: a clean, well-crafted porter.

Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a light bodied brown coloring with a white, filmy head. Nose of bittersweet baker's chocolate, roasted notes, and hints of mocha. Flavors are chocolate and coffee forward, very balanced, with a sweet and bitter blend throughout. Smoky highlights, too. Thin bodied, with a roasted chocolate linger in the semi-dry finish. Solid brew.
