Shipshape. The aroma is somewhat faint with notes of roasted malts; however, the taste is much more pronounced with roasty malt and faint caramel. Finish is light and dryer that I was expecting. There is also quite a bit of carbonation, which gives the impression of a more refreshing and lighter experience.

Solid porter with roasted grain, notes of chocolate, and coffee. Dark pour with thin white lacing. Go to porter...easy going and very drinkable just not too exciting.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This porter pours out dark as night with a thin layer of head at the top. I consumed this beer from a pint glass instead of a porter beer glass though. The aroma is a bit smoky and a tad bit acrid as well. The after tasted of this porter is roasted nutty with a chocolate-like finish. This os a less "sweet" porter and more robust and smoky nature.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. 110 days old. Appearance: Deep brown and opaque with a hint of ruby red. Head is almost non existent.
Aroma: Roasted malt dominates over any noticeable yeast of hop aroma.
Taste: sweet, highly roasted malt that isn’t acrid or bitter, giving way a well balanced hop bitterness. Pretty straightforward.
Mouthfeel: Thin, light body with low carbonation. Bottle seemed flat.
Finish: Well balanced, with dry roast that lingers.
Overall: Typical roasted malt character of a robust porter, with a surprisingly thin, light body and carbonation. Maybe it was just a flat bottle. Will have to to seek out a fresher version. Otherwise, an average robust porter
