Picked-up a single can as part of a mixed six-pack at Kappy's in Norwell for about eleven dollars. Have had a few brews from these guys before. This was pretty good, flavor was a bit muted.

16 oz can into modern pub. Dated 11/1/18.
Look is black. Smell is roasted malt. Taste follows with sweet chocolate finish. Feel is medium. Overall nice porter but not as much chocolate as I had hoped for

Dark brown where no light passes through the edge of the glass. Modest head with very little spots for lace.

More than any other Porter, this beer has a strong milk chocolate aroma with a light cocoa touch.

The matches the smell. As the the bartender said, "this is like Swiss Miss with Marshmallows." The body is rich with a light carbonation level. The finish is cocoa and it lasts a decent amount of time.
