Dark brown, creamy light tan head. Roasted chocolate aromas warm to light swirls of caramel and vanilla oatmeal. Burnt chocolate roasty flavors round with a touch of bitter coffee and cream. Light to medium bodied, soft carbonation, light bittersweet finish. Another one that spells nothing special...

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Surprisingly good, but more of a stout than a porter. Light tan head that stays to the bottom. Strong maltiness and then a quick switch to a lighter finish.
