A: Growler glass brown color (really hard to tell the difference once I poured into a pint); good garnet highlights. Thin albeit lush and creamy layer of khaki head. Great adhesion, sticky lacing.

S: Light mellow roast, black malt character. More of a toasty carmelized brown sugar char. Light nuttiness; toffee. Slight hints of dark chocolate.

M: Quite creamy and smooth that does well in hiding a medium body. Low astringency and well attenuated. Low-Moderate carbonation.

T/O: Lightly burnt coffee grains and semi sweet chocolate. Muted fruitiness throughout that has sweet/acidic properties of passionfruit. Maybe some raisin and caramel sweetness. Sweetness is countered with great bitterness level that begs repeated sips. Limited on the hoppy/coffee side of things but very drinkable throughout. A well styled traditional style porter that doesnt take the roastringency to the edge.
