12 oz.

Pours deep opaque brown, barely any light penetration. Head is fine and lightly tan, retains indefinitely.

Smells of pecan, caramel, roasted coffee, and hints of woody hop.

Tastes of caramel, vanilla, coconut and roasted coffee with smokey aftertaste.

Medium body with soft carbonation on the tongue.

A very tasty and aromatic porter with lots to like and little to complain about. If anything could be improved, the body could have a bit more to it. Otherwise, top notch and worth seeking out.
