Style: American Porter

Notes / Commercial Description:
Like a campfire in a glass, this robust beauty has seductive notes of vanilla, smoked cedar, and mulling spices on the nose. A dark pour with mild lacing, she is a rollercoaster of lush chocolate and fig fruits diving into a semi-dry finish of toast and biscuit.

Aroma is roasty, with a chocolate, fudgy undertone and modest sweetness.

Flavor is roasty, as well, and the diacetyl I thought I may have found in the nose is definitely present in the flavor. The ginger is comparatively subtle.

Had a pint at the brewery. Yup, the first sip is chocolate and graham cracker. There are vanilla and sweet lactose notes as well, and while it's a tasty beer, I wouldn't follow it with a second pint. It's a little thick for summer heat. Cool beer.

I really liked the accent on the traditional porter flavor! Very easy to drink, this was my first Denver Beer Co brew and I will see what else is out there.

Very mild porter. Creamy, milky and chocolaty. Well balanced. Somewhat flat but overall a great sipping beer.

Pour is deep chocolate brown with a tan colored head and solid retention. Nose has a bit of creamy chocolate and vanilla, light roast, over cooked barley, and stale bread crust. Taste is similar, actually much more roasted, some over cooked barley, less creamy chocolate, still some notes of vanilla mix with the light chocolate. Light body, a touch thin in the finish, moderate carb.
