Growler. Pours very dark brown/black with a decent brown head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is roasty, toasty malts that are mirrored in its taste. Mildly bitter with notes of toffee, molasses, a bit of oak and floral hops. Average carbonation and bitter finish. Quite nice.

Plenty smooth and not very smoky for a porter. Very fine aroma of coffee, woodsmoke, and a dash of floral hops. Draymanís is medium-bodied and malty, with some chocolate notes, definitely not one of those grab-you-by-the-lapels kind of porters. An enjoyable brew, like most of BBCís releases.

Poured from a large bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a full wet black body with a deep brown hue and an average-sized foamy dark tan head that had shorter retention and light cling with average lacing. Its aroma had a heavy roasted malt presence with toffee and chocolate-coffee blend, along with some oak, and touches of grainy and floral hops. It had a rich, roasty malt taste with light sweetness and a mild bitterness, featuring tones of chocolate and coffee, and some lighter grainy, earthy, and oak tones. The beer had a filling mouthfeel which was fairly thick, and a slightly creamy and dry body with lower carbonation and life.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours a dark brown color with reddish highlights and a medium sized beige head. The aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, herbal hops with tart fruits at the edges. The flavor is roasted malts, chocolate, herbal and earthy hops with light tart fruit notes. I wonder how old this was since the tart fruits seemed out of place.

Got this at the Bennington Co-Op. Pours dark with minimal head. Really drinkable! Malty and earthy. Straight forward porter that actually tastes like a porter and not a light stout. Drink this!
