This medium-bodied ale is dark in color and deceiving on the palate. The glassy smooth finish of this beer is your first hint that dark in color doesn't always mean heavy in stomach.

Pours nice dark brown with fizzy off white head. Aroma has notes chocolate, roast, and a touch of acidity. Taste is thin, but has notes of roast, chocolate, and a touch of coffee. Maybe a touch of acidity in the back end of the beer. Nice, sessionable brew.

What else could you want from a Porter? Roasted Chocolate Malt. That settles it in my book.

Poured with a tan head and some lace. Tanish brown head. Nice roasty malty nose with a little dark ripe fruit, cocoa, coffee, a hint of vanilla and chocolate. Flavor is basically the same as aroma. In spite of the richness it’s fairly drinkable. Very full flavored.

Brown with red hues. Aroma is coffee, brown sugar. Flavor is roasted malts, toffee, mild coffee with little residual. Body is okay but a little thin. Some acidity. Pretty good.

Bottle. Pours a very dark chewy brown, shiny with a fine fizzy head. Aroma is medium roasty, bit of roast acidity, lighter coffee, crunchy. Flavor follows, thinner, roast acidity, very straight forward and simple, light espresso and dark chocolate, touch of sour cream towards the finish. Medium/light bodied, light sizzling carbonation, overall watery feel.
