Clear brown pour with a beige frothy head. US shelfie porters are funny.. I swear the ones i’ve had could just as well have been a brown ale. Taste: some semi-bitter roasted malt, nutty brown flavor, chocolate chip cookie and a hint of licorice and bitter coffee. Pretty light body. Semi dry aftertadte and a fairly short one too.

Had this beer with brunch (because I’m fancy like that...) and that is its true calling. The only thing I could have asked for was for this to be a coffee Porter. Then I would have been like woah!

Bottle. Vegetal caramel chocolate malt aroma. Chestnut brown with moderate light tan head. Lightly sweet earthy chocolate-caramel malt and moderately bitter herbal hay flavor. Decent body. Drier than the typical porter. Nice.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dense, dark, brown to black with a plush foam head that remains, effervescent. Nose has notes of chocolate, hops, pepper, with a smokiness that provides a rich full aromatic experience. Goes across the palate silky and finishes crisp with a pleasant lingering aftertaste. Tastes smooth, milky, with the spicy hops rounding out the drink. The flavors blend so well it makes it hard to distinguish individual notes. This is a smooth, crisp, well made porter. This beer tastes like another!

Bottle at home. Initial pour was a pint glass of foam. Took about 4 minutes before it settled into some liquid. Amber brown color - looked more like a dunklerbock. The aroma was somewhat muted by the foamy head but there was some standard roasty malts and coffee. The flavors come together quite nicely - roasty, smoky, sweet, chocolate, coffee. Great balance on the finish.
