Listed as an Americanized version of a classic English beer, this brew was presented in pint glass with no head, hardly any lacing and very little carbonation. The appearance was very dark, in fact opaque. I could not detect any specific aromas but it did have a smooth malty base with a slightly roasted aftertaste.

This had to be one of the weakest porters I have ever had in body, flavor, and maybe in ABV. I actually gave it to my wife and ordered their version of a German Maibock beer which did not fare much better. Both brews lacked the depth and character to live up to their style.
