L: Pours a thin black and retains a generous crema head that subsides quickly into a dark tan collar. Lacing is spotty.
S: Subtle roastiness with hints of coffee, chocolate and a nuance of liquorish.
T: Typical porter characteristics that align with the smell. Very delicate, balanced flavors.
F: Body is a touch too thin, would love a bit more body because I think it could amplify the nice flavors. Love the latent bitterness, gives it a more bold feel. Very nice carb.
O: Excellent porter and one I would drink again. It's a nice change up from some of Nebco's more popular offerings.

Had at Haywire Burger Bar in Westbrook, CT back in January 2015. From notes. Really nice porter here on tap. Never have seen it outside of the brewery and it is not canned or bottled. Would love to try again in the winter months. Seems like a nice, lighter dark beer if you don't want their Imperial Stout Trooper.
