12 oz. bottle poured into craft pint.

A- Near black, but held into light shows a beautiful ruby color. Brown head hangs on at a 1/4". Little lacy rings.

S- Mild roasted barley, cocoa, caramelized sugar.

T- Again mild dry dark roasted malts. Slight sweetness, sugary flavor.

M- creamy, smooth, with a semidry finish.

O- This is a very flavorful porter, but not too rich. It still has that porter "poundability" to it. Very nice.

A: Dark brown with red highlights when backlit. Surface bubbles form interesting moving patterns after each sip.

S: Pine aroma and a hint of chocolate.

T: Roasted grains and chocolate. No harshness to the roast flavor.

M: Very rich for a 5.2% porter.

O: A perfect session porter. Dark grains can sometimes be unpleasant in a lighter bodied porter, but not in this one.
