This should be classified as a nut brown.

Solid brown ale! Er, porter I mean. Terrific camping beer. I enjoyed this in the majesty of Yosemite.

Bottle poured into a Mammoth Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours rich brown with some ruby hues, a frothy khaki head that settles to a thin layer and laces lightly.

S: Nutty toasted malt, a little chocolate and coffee, touch of dark fruit, little dark caramel malt sweetness.

T: Toasty malt, coffee and chocolate notes, little dark fruit, nutty, and a kinda burnt toast bitterness. Not as robust as the smell would lead you to believe.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Not terrible, but I wish it tasted as good as it smells.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle.

L - Dark mahogany color, but looks clear when held up to light. Headis light tan color. It starts weakly and fades to a thin ring around the glass.

S - Aroma is bready, with some slightly singed grain. Some chocolate. There's a strange funky hint in the aroma, like milk just before it sours. No hops aroma.

T - Bready malt flavors with chocolate/chocolate milk and some plums. No overt burnt flavors. No hops flavors, but some mild bitterness. No yeast character. The almost-sour aroma is not reflected in the flavor.

F - Thin to medium body. Low carbonation with a silky, velvety feel (oats?). No obvious alcohol.

O - Overall, I find this a bit thin and too low in carbonation. The flavors are good, but nothing really stands out. Strange note in the aroma.
