This was a lighter than usual apricot tinted brown. This foamed over when I popped the cap, but there wasn't much in the way of carbonation two minutes after the pour.

Smells of nutty malts, lightly sweet bread, mild tofee, and a bit fruit (figs?). There is also a well incorporated perfumed warmth. Doesn't taste as good as it smells unfortunately. Moderate sweetness up front, sweet bread and toffee mostly. The finish is warm, dry cocoa that tastes out of place. This is light bodied and under carbonated.

Not at all what I'd expect from the style. Lacking richness and depth.

Bland, brown and boring. Not worth paying craft beer price of $9.00 except that it's > 8% abv

Their maple Porter in spring is quite good. Boo! From a local.
