Dark brown, thin, 2/5" tan head. Aroma was mostly roasted malt. Had some toffee.

Some hops to give it a bitterness, still chewy, but not thick. Mild chocolate malt. Good porter that is well balanced.

Appetizer: almost no carbonation with a black-red brown appearance; mildly sweet aroma

Entree: smooth initial taste (similar to Founder's Porter I sampled just prior so maybe biased), with less mildly harsh aftertaste, which dissipates nicely / better as compared

Dessert: better than Founder's, still behind Deschutes, and comparable (albeit differing since vanilla) to Linenkugel's Snowdrift.

Each his/her own, so your call.

Dark brown, semi-opaque. Absolutely zero head after an aggressive pour.

Mild aroma of espresso and tobacco. Roasted nuts. Lactose tartness.

Roasted almonds, toast and coffee bitterness. Hint of molasses. Piney, earthy hop. Descent balance. Sour aftertaste.

Medium bodied; rough, grainy texture. Harsh carbonation.

This beer is just not that good.
