look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: It looks as expected. This beer dark reddish-brown with a bit of purple or fushia hint. Does not retain it's head.

Smell: Woody smell with a hint of cinnamon

Taste: A woody taste, like it smells, a bit fizzy. Complexity is just simple...the same throughout.

Mouth feel: Pretty easy to drink but not incredibly because of acidic coffee tase. Nothing amazing.

Serving type: bottle

Basically a solid porter I would drink again because I like drinking local.

Poured from 12oz bottle into snifter a very dark brown with about an inch head which subsided rather quickly. Aroma was rather weak-slight chocolate. Mouthfeel is a light carb. Taste of coffee and toasted malt, there is a slight bitterness but it's pretty easy drinking. Average porter
