A-dark brown, a lot of tan head, waterfall effect

S-very sweet smelling. molasses is noticeable but not strong, fairly disappointing for a porter.

T-very watery with some chocolate hints in the after-taste. more of a stout than porter. this is one disappointing beer

M-just watery all the way through, very low carbonation

D-as bad as it is, the drinkability for some reason could be worse. its not completely disgusting and once you get past the fact its a sad beer, it can go down easily

Sampled 4/23/08. I was disappointed with this one. Dark brown body with a thin head and not really much lacing. Roasted malt flavor with some smoked caramel but it is a bit watery and thin. Goes down easy enough but leaves me wanting quite a bit more.

Part of the sample flight at BJ's Daytona

Sight - ruby red with a light tan head
Smell - nothing much of anything
Taste - traced of cocoa and toffee, lacking a back bite
Sweet - 3/5
Bitter 2/5

A very light porter, almost like a souped up version of the Jeremiah Red. I felt it needed more in the hop department as it was overly sweet.
