Pours a lovely rich brown with a thin tan head that dissipates swiftly leaving mild lacing.
Smell is malty sweet with light vanilla notes and some cocoa.
Taste is sweet, somewhat chocolatey, some rye like spiciness. Definitely gets nicer as it warms up.
Mouthfeel is fairly full but pleasantly light. Certainly drinkable, quaffable, and maybe even crushable.
Overall this is a pleasant enough porter, nothing that will knock your socks off but definitely something that could be enjoyed anytime of the year for a fan of dark beers.

A rich, dark, flavorful porter. The scent was slight but inviting. The color was spot on and the taste was very flavorful and not overwhelming. A nice porter to go along with some burgers.

The first thing I thought after I opened the can was, “This smells like Guinness.” And it does, with maybe a bit more heft from cocoa notes, but I think it’s the yeast, because the aromas are all about Guinness, IMHO.

But before the nose, we have the eyes. This pours a dark milk chocolate, with a tan head that is reminiscent of Guinness, but not as creamy.

The taste has all the cocoa flavors, plus a sweetness that provides more body to the beer. The feel is creamy, which is welcome in a 5.8% ABV beer. Just a pleasure to drink.

Look: Black with a tan brown head, soft bubbles,
Smell: Coffee, chocolate, roast
Taste: Much sweeter than the smell, more like a milk chocolate that is offset by a mild coffee bitterness
Feel: Mild, small carbonation, silk going down, smooth. Some hopiness.
Overall: a good, as the can implies, robust porter. Would not hesitate to get another one but also probably won't seek it out either
