Poured from the 22 oz. bomber into a Victory nonick.

a: Clear dark amber to copper with a finger thick tan head which receded to even surface foam and dense lacing.

s; Mild black coffee.

t: Smokey malt with some hop bite. Bitterness lingers slightly on an otherwise sweet to dry finish. Later some cedar notes come forward.

m; Light to medium with some wateriness. Good carbonation.

o; Just about dead on for a light porter. Easy drinking,
