Had this on tap at Prohibition Pig in Waterbury. From notes.

A - Poured black with one finger of thick off white head. Good lace rings and a film of retention.

S - Roast, dark fruit, sweet grain.

T - Chocolate, grain, roast, sugar. More chocolate towards the finish. Fairly solid.

M - Good carbonation, dry finish. Good medium body and the dryness is good.

O/D - Decent porter, but nothing too memorable. Well crafted is all it is. I couldn't pick up the spelt that was apparently in this, but I can't imagine many people can. Good.
