Filled a 64 oz growler for home. Poured with a good head but not too heavy. Nice red-brown color. Smooth finish with the bite of the roasted malts. Not hoppy, but not intended to be.

4oz pour at the brew pub. Awesome! Poured a dark ruby, fine tan head, light chocolate malt aroma, rich malt flavor, lots of chocolate, slightly sweet, rich and chewy chocolate, an excellent chocolate porter disguised as a brown ale. Pretty darn good.

Light brown in color, clear with a thin head. Watery in the flavor this beer needed more work. More a beer for the masses than a good tasty brew for the geeks. Light in the malt.
