Brown colored, thinner color than average porter, but a solid 1" of tan head make it nice overall. Aroma was roast, nothing sweet going on.

Taste hit the sweet notes the aroma did not. Leaned away from hops. Chocolate malt in there. Gets smoother as it warmed.

Another relatively average beer from SA, most importantly perhaps, no off flavors. Decently done.

Appearance – Two finger head on a clear deep red body.

Aroma – Roasted malts, light hops.

Taste – Light roasted malts, not too strong.

Mouthfeel – Good bodied but not heavy.

Overall – A good middle-of-the-road porter.
