From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with a bottling date of Feb 11, 2016. Sampled on April 29,2016.

The pour is a dark brown with a short-lived moderate off-white head. Opaque.

The aroma brings out chocolate, maybe cocoa, dark malts, low hops, and an overriding burnt butterscotch thing.

Light to medium body but still fairly smooth.

The taste also has a light chocolate character with only a mild bitter finale.

Really casual and nice Porter. Drinkable is the name of the game here. The color is a little light for a Porter, somewhere between a cola and a dark tea. Nice tan head. The smell is like an English brown, pure sweet roasted malt. The taste also has a hybrid Porter/Brown thing going on: malt caramel goodness, hops in the background and just enough to balance the beer subtly, with a little chocolate malt bite on the finish. While I love my high gravity and super complex stouts, this is just a damned fine beer that I could (and will) drink all night.

Dark brown, minimal head.

This beer is very nutty, as well as pretty dry with highly bitter coffee notes. I like it, the dryness makes it drinkable.

If you don't need sugar in your coffee and you like porters, then this is for you.
