Super nice porter. Overall just solid. Think of what you want from a porter, and this guy has it. There’s nothing here that will bring out attention, but nothing that will warrant a demerit either. Good stuff.

Bottle @ home, via rotbox. Pours a very deep brown appearance with a lasting dark brown head. The aroma has a lot of roast, some smoke, coffee, chocolate, and lots of earth. Moderate light sweetness and moderate bitterness. Medium full body. Roasty chocolate flavor with a hint of fruitiness on the back end. A little bit of burnt sugar / caramel. Not all that bad.
