Pours a murky dark brew, sports some deep walnut highlights when held up to the light. Head is small side not even one finger and not much in the way of lace.

Aroma is nice malty notes, earthy peat notes, chocolate maybe slight coffee hint and touches of spice from the rye maybe.

Taste is nice malty goodness, some nice sweetness hints of chocolate covered peat. Has good down to earth notes with nut hints. Maybe some light hints of dark fruit in the finish with some light spiciness from the rye mingled with earthy herbal hop notes.

Mouthfeel is solid medium carbonation seems light but offers some pep in the finish.

Overall very nice porter, favorable easy drinking and enjoyable. Only knock really is the lack of any good head.
