From the can poured into a pint glass, the mouthfeel was rather thin, but overall this is a quality porter with a nice lactose-sweetness to accent the maltiness of the brew.

Thoroughly enjoyed from the can in a snifter via a friend from work---THANKS JUSTIN!

Pours a dark blackish brown with a medium head of light tan dissipating foam that settles to a thick ring , light layer, and subtle lacing. Nose of chocolate, cream, and dark roasted malts. Flavors exceed the nose with milk chocolate awash in dark roasted malts with a touch of char on the middle and subtle lactose sweetness. Very substantial in the aftertaste is a fine roasted malt note that is satisfying to stout porter drinkers. Medium mouth feel, coating and sweet, with a sweet aftertaste and low carbonation. Excellent. Would have this one again and would love to visit this brewery.

Cheers

Rather sweet, a tad watery, some chocolate, roasted malt, wee bit of dark fruits, some coffee.
