great aroma; roasted malts and some very nice dark chocolate in the back of aroma. great dark pour. Taste is a let down due to semi bitter finish?? palate is on thin side for porter.

12oz pour from Andersons in Sylvania. Deep brown pour with minimal head. Aroma is roasty malt, chocolate, little coffee. Tastes are chocolaty and nutty with a hint of smoke. Slick palate, low carbonation. Well rounded, but the texture is a bit of a letdown for me.
