Draught at Ale Arsenal. Moderate high roast and a little meaty. Clear brown with ivory head. Thinnish mouthfeel and roasty. Cola aspects as well. Moderate low bittering. Not very interesting.

thebeertourist (5102) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 29, 2015
On tap at Monk’s Kettle, SF. Almost black, beige head. Rich chocolate, roasted coffee, hints of tart fruit. Well-balanced flavours, dry roast countering sweeter chocolate malts. A bit light body, but good overall.

From a tap at the brewery. The pour is a very dark red with an minimum white head. There’s slight silk texture, rasin, roasty malt. I like it .

Should have known by the time I got to this that they know what they’re doing with the low abv stuff. Delicate balance is well done bewtween light chocolate and roasted malt and even lighter tones of toffee, coffee and hops. Well done!"

Nose is chocolate with a light toasty character. Some moderate coffe as it warms. Taste is lightly bitter, almost fruity. Some sugary sweetness. Reminds me a lot of taddy porter. Solid

Draft at the brewpub. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have some mild roasted malts, chocolate, hints of coffee, the nose and flavor are pretty standard for a porter, only negative is that its on the thin side.
