On tap at the brewery the other day.

The beer pours a darkish brown color with fairly decent head retention and light lacking. The is OK I guess. I'm picking up a lot of roasted malt and coffee, with some hints of underlying burnt toast and licorice. The flavor profile replicates the nose in this light, fairly simply porter. As with the nose, the coffee and roasted malt flavors dominate in this fairly dry porter. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied, with short, dry finish. Alcohol, what there is of it, is well integrated into the flavor profile.
