On-tap served in a pint glass. Nice foam head, almost one inch tall, decent retention. Smell is fairly strong, but not real complex, just toasty like you would expect from a porter. Flavor gives hints of chocolate and toasted coffee. The finish yields some bitterness. Mouthfeel is a bit flat, slightly thin for a porter. Alcohol doesn't appear very strong for this beer. Overall a very average Porter selection, nothing unique about it, but worth a try if you like this style...

Pours a black color that shows clear, deep ruby highlights when held up to the light. It is topped by a light brown head. This porter has a nice aroma of toast, roast malt, and dark caramel malts. There is lots of dark malt character in the flavor. This beer is light on the palate, but rich on flavors with notes of espresso, and toasted biscuits. This has a nice dry finish with an acidity that is contributed by the roast malts. There are some definite contrasting notes of spicy hop character towards the end, these add another dimension to this beer. The finish is nice, roasty, sharp, and bitter. Overall this is my favorite beer of theirs.
