On tap at Dark Horse. The pour is a thinner dark brown, allowing hints of red to shine through. There is a light tan head that fades to a ring with no lace. The aroma is carmely malt with a little roastyness and notice else going on. The flavor is similar. Somewhat bland, but not overly simple. The roast and caramel come through and it's decent. The mouth feel is thin, but the flavors do linger. There are many better porters out there, but this is decent ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
