c/o mnmike. Thanks again! Very grateful.
Aroma - for a porter itís a bit scant on aroma. What does exists is made up of a chocolate, light coffee, and nutty nature. Itís kind of small though.
Appearance - body is black/brown; liquid is opaque; the head sets up about 1/4" and quickly rings out.
Taste - the taste is immediately somewhat pungent, slightly roasty, there is a bit of chocolate malt to boot.
Palate - body is medium to light; texture is between thin and thick; the carbonation is average, but approaching a lively nature; the finish is slightly bitter on the sides and middle of the tongue.

Can, shared by Cunningham. Itís a clear reddish brown beer with a small light beige head. Roasted light alcoholic nose with coffee and a touch of dark bread. A bit alcoholic in the mouth, medium bodied and soft on the carbonation. Laying roasted finish with a certain warmth. Pleasant, but not very interesting. 140214
