A: Dark brown in the glass with a redish hue around the edges. A nice cocoa, coffee colored head about a finger worth that leaves vertical laceing.

S: A nutty, roasty arroma mixed with carmel vanilla and a hint of smoke.

T: Vanilla, carmel are roasted barley polling for position on my taste buds. there is also a grainyness to it and a mineraly yeast backbone (english yeast strain?)

M: Chewy with moderate carbination and a slickness too it.

O: One of my favorate styles and this one doesn't disapoint. If i could find this on cask somewhere I'd go out of my way!

On tap in a tulip glass.

A- Dark brown sugar, cola color that lets just a bit of light pass. Minimal head, mega rings of lacing.

S- Mild smokey porter aroma, toasty and sweet. Understated vanilla.

T- Oak, vanilla, liquid fireplace if I may.

M- Smooth light feel with good carbonation. The vanilla and low abv make it light and easy to drink.

O- good, easy drinking porter.
