This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a black color with a finger’s worth of off white foamy head that fell off at a decent pace. Sly messy lace. The aroma had some roasted coffee beans, subtle grounds, light wood, some earthiness, dried leaf, some hay and just a touch of vanilla at the very end. The flavor was roasty and sweet combining it all fairly nice and added a touch of clean caramel malt. Aftertaste slightly leaned closer to the roastiness. Finish was somewhat dry and roasty. The palate was almost medium bodied, sitting just a tad under and having a decent sessionable sort of smooth feel along my tongue. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt fine. Overall, pretty nice porter that I could have again.

Deep and dark, semi sweet chocolate and roast grains. Thick brown foamy head. Aroma is soft and sweet, taste brings the bitterness, and lingers on the palate, like melted chocolate. A keeper.

It's a solid porter. The flavors are not overwhelming. I would love another one

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and char aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, char, and dark fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a nice balance between roast and fruit qualities all around.

Serving type: bottle.

Good porter without all the unnecessary extra flavors. Robust is an apt description

Deep dark brown, thin film of a head, light espresso, chocolate, caramel, creamy smooth, good for people who do not like a lot of roast bitterness, very drinkable, almost sessionable, chocolate and dark but not roasted malts.
