12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours nearly opaque dark brown/black color with a 1 finger dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toasted dark bread, herbal, wood, light dark fruit, and roast/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt, earthy hops, and light yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toasted dark bread, herbal, wood, light dark fruit/nuttiness, and roast/toasted earthiness. Moderate herbal/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toasted dark bread, herbal, wood, light nuttiness, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, earthy hops, and light yeast ester flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready, and lightly sticky/chalky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.6%. Overall this is a very nice American porter. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, earthy hops, and light yeast ester flavors; very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable and classic tasting style example.

Served in 12 oz pint off the Taproom Tap, sign states it's a Silver Medal winner in World Beer Championships

A- Pours a very dark brown, almost black body with a nice 1 finger khaki head

S- Malty, Roasted Almond, slight coffee note

T-Nice creamy body with great malt balance, nice burnt biscuit notes and finishes with a lasting black coffee/malt balance

M- Great carbonation, a little higher than the average Porter draft pour, but incredibly fitting.

Overall- Great Porter, it is well balanced and approachable. The style is represented well with this Ore Dock staple.
