This porter is a very dark brown and exhibits a redness in certain lights. The head is also quite persistent and there is significant lacing. The smell is basic roasted malt. The taste begins with the previously noted burnt hops flavor and has served real malt and sweetness thereafter. Surprisingly light-bodied. Not bad, lighter and more drinkable than most porters.
