A: Pours a dark brown, nearly black color. Some ruby highlights around the edges. A dense tan head rises to about two fingers. Excellent retention and some spotty lace.
S: A simple nose, but really enjoyable. Toasted and lightly roasted malts. Baked bread, chocolate, light coffee.
T: The toasted, bready malt character is really nice. Bigger chocolate flavors than I was expecting. A touch more roasty in the finish, along with some coffee . Finishes a touch bitter, which seems to be a mix of the malt (chocolate and coffee) and a touch of herbal hops.
M/O: A medium body and moderate carbonation. Ultra smooth and creamy without loosing anything in the finish. Really easy to drink and come back to.

I have always been a fan of Central Waters, and this is a well made American Porter. Well balanced and not over barring in anyway, hits all the notes, and something I just want to keep coming back to.

Pours a Coca-Cola color with a tiny tan head. Good lacing. Smells of oatmeal and coffee. Taste is the same, but with hints of chocolate. Mouthfeel is light for a porter. Overall not a bad porter.

smells like vanilla. Very creamy and smooth tasting. All day drinkability. The feel is nothing special.
