Another recently discovered piece of paper with a review...

L: As expected, dark, black. Think light brown head that dissipates rather quickly.

S: coffee, dark malts, campfire. Interesting.

T: Acidic, smokey, dark malts. Some coffee.

F: Light body, lightly cleansing.

O: not a particularly inspiring porter.

On tap (minimal review)
Pours a nice dark brown, with a decently sustaining head, minimal lacing. Nose is roasted, but seems to also have a little smokiness.

At 4.8%, this does not carry a heavy feel, but is surprisingly flavorful. There is nothing exciting, but a very solid bitter coffee roasted taste backed by a noticeable woody to grassy hop back. Again, solid flavors for a lower-ABV offering, kudos.
