Pours black, half inch of pillowy off-white head dissipates slowly to a bit of a film.

Smells of cocoa, woody malts, caramel, and hints of vanilla and coffee.

Brown sugar and cocoa malts mix with some woody bitterness and a hint of vanilla.

Fuller body with light carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

Really tasty porter, impressive flavor and body in a lower abv package. This is said to be the first beer Roundabout brewed. I was told this serving was from the second batch ever. It's quite good and well worth trying.

Watery, light, some malt. But not much else to it.

Nice carbonation, and drinks very light with some roasty notes. An enjoyable beer that you could easily have several of throughout the night.

A bit annoyed bc I ordered the IPA and they asked me what I ordered multiple times and still gave me the wrong beer. Pour is dark brown with a very light tan head. Nose is strong roast with some dark malt and a hint of chocolate. Strong carbonation and a medium slick body. Taste is a bit less roasted with a touch more rich complex malt. Not really sweet with some dry bakers chocolate. Finish thins a hint.
