well made beer here, but awfully simple and straightforward as they go, especially from these guys. i almost find myself disappointed its not some absurd weirdo beer like so many of their others, but its nice to have something a bit more conservative in the lineup. this is tasty, but simple, and super light for anything being passed off as a porter, it looks far more like a brown ale than a porter, and honestly doesnt get nearly that deep on the grain front to be a porter in my book, but it tastes good, and its lightness makes sense with the florida climate. there may or may not be coffee in this beer too. it has that aroma for sure, along with some sweet cocoa and a little fresh tobacco, less of it in the flavor, but the bitterness and acidity seem to match, so it remains a mystery. lighter bodied as they go, especially if we call this porter, its drinkable by the pint, and fairly dry as it finishes. not quite under flavored, but it certainly is next to the rest of their lineup, and for being as well made as it is, seems still to me to be somewhat underwhelming overall. a worthy pint, serviceable but largely unexciting.

Dark ruby red brown, no visible carbonation, a half finger of light beige head.

Coffee, liquorice, tar.

Coffee, dark toasted malts, light sweetness and light bitterness, well rounded.

Medium body, medium carbonation. Great smooth mouth feel.

Really well rounded and makes me want to keep drinking it. Drank at the Boca Raton lounge.
