Black, medium body, and cool. Aroma is faint. Draws down clean. Flavor is light roasted malt. Very light. Cool and downable. If you want to have a drinking contest, this is a good choice. Good porter. Seems more like 4.8%

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
An excellent porter; one of Firestones best. Malt, malt, and malt, plus other hefty grains make this a true liquid bread.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Decent porter - out of the bottle. A little thin for my liking, and the flavor could be more distinct. However, this is a good option and I would have another.

Pours dark amber, with tan head. Aroma sweetish, of malt with hops in the background. Taste is of a solid porter. Slight note of hops. Overall, a pretty good beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nearly opaque brown, and what little head there is fades to slight edge suds pretty quickly. The aroma is a complex malt with tones of coffee and hops, and the flavor is big and rich and a little acerbic. The finish has more hop burn than I expected. This is a fine porter.
