Sample at the brewpub. Pours nearly black with a medium tan head that recedes gradually to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, chocolate and coffee. Light-bodied with flavors of roasted coffee, chocolate malt and mild piney hops. The finish is roasty with a coffee and malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

It finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Thin to medium body, watery texture, moderate to lively carbonation. Chocolate, roast and toffee taste. The body could be heftier, but an enjoyable porter nonetheless.

Thin for a porter but also very tasty. Perhaps this is a summer porter. It lacks the boozy, stickiness of a classic porter but is strong on bitter chocolates and roasted malt. I will definitely get more.
