On tap at the brewpub, served in a nonic pint.

Black body with a tan collar of foam that settles, initial fingers width of creamy foam at first. A light ruby highlight that glints in the light.

Aroma is pretty light, but it could be that the pint was served too cold, though it didn't feel overly cold. Some mild roast and buttery toffee, slight grassy hops.

Tasted slightly buttery, some mild roast and a very smooth feel, seemed more like a porter with very mild roast malt characteristics. Body was medium with light carb, pretty drinkable overall, and no hint of the nearly 9% abv. Damn. Sucker punch that drinks more like a 5% porter.

9/2012 growler: no diacetyl, lasting piney bitterness. Clean roast and bakers chocolate flavors. Pretty solid rendition.
