Nice tan brown head that is foamy. Beer is opaque and black. Nice texture. Smell and taste are fairly smoky with a nice Roasty malt note. Light sweet caramel note underneath it. Light chocolate.

Body is good. Medium but on the heavier side. A bit thin but not watery and make drinkable. Biting carbonation is good and gives it a nice texture that works well with the body.

Overall, a very good beer worth getting and very drinkable. Great for a cold day.

Probably one of Port City's best beers but not one for everyone. Body is black with minimal head like a porter/stout but blindfolded this could've been a rauchbier for all I knew b/c it smells so smoky and meaty, probably a touch of sweet malt gives it away. I really like the smokiness/gaminess of beer (and I don't eat meat at all, mind you) which is heavy on tongue but completely overpowering. This allows for a mellow balance that gives off just enough sweetness to counter the "meat" flavor without compromising the smoke aspects of the beer. An enjoyable beer that nicely blends two different styles.
