Aroma of roasted malt,bitter cocoa and coffee.Taste was identical but softened by being just a bit sweet. Feel was excellent,not thin or watery which some porters can suffer from. A really nice porter which I will definitely have again

Appearance - Pours thin black cola like with decent off white head that vanished before I can sit the glass down. There is not much lacing at all.

Aroma - Roasted malts, coffee, a touch of smoke, chocolate and a little sweetness.

Taste - Very nice flavors a little more smoke and some charcoal in the flavor. Rich chocolate Roasted malts and coffee grounds.

Feel - The feel is pretty creamy with some tingly carbonation. Slightly dry finish.

Overall - I was not expecting much from this but it has very nice flavors.

Look is a very near black cola and pours with a finger of light khaki head.

Aroma is chocolate, coffee and a bunch of malt.

Taste dark chocolate upfront, a nice malt presence mid and finishes with a nice touch of coffee.

Feel is smooth, creamy and almost full. Nice.

Overall a fine porter that is done very well in my opinion. I generally prefer heavy stouts but this porter is a nice compromise for having near stout like attributes but at a much lighter abv.

Great surprise found on tap at Epcot, poured into a pint glass. This beer was a sight for sore eyes. Although Epcot has a better than usual selection of beers around the World Showcase, this one stands out as one of the only dark beers. And it is a pleasure. Great malty notes throughout. Very smooth. The perfect companion to the IllumiNations fireworks show at the end of the day. Solid all around, and recommended to any visitor to the park!

All the notes of a quality toasted porter, but not overpowering. Nice and tasty.
