Watery bland porter. No real flavor stood out.

I had high hopes for this beer but was disappointed for sure. The beer poured a nice black color with a falling nice head. However the head was gone really only after like 3 swigs. The beer tasted flat to me and my wife. However the beer smelled bready and fresh? The beer had a bit of bitter after taste. I really got no goodness out of this beer and while it was drinkable it will not be on my buy again list.

A great local porter, extremely dark brown color, notes of chocolate & coffee. Low ABV but great flavor. Would pick up again.

I bought this on Saturday in a Saranac Holiday pack and drank last night so it obviously is still being made.

Not a bad porter, but I found it to be a little too bitter for the style. I would have enjoyed a little more malt and a little less hop to be more true to the style.
