No lacing or head, off brown in color and just straight up malty (although off flavored) taste. Wouldn’t reccomend

Draft sample at the brewpub. The porter poured a dark brownish-black with a medium creamy tan colored head that diminishes steadily. Roasted malt and coffee on the nose. The body was thin. There were flavors of charcoal with a touch of hops in the background. The carbonation was soft. The finish was clean with coffee and dark chocolate aftertaste.

Aroma of roasted malts. Pours a dark brown with a none lasting tan head and no lacing. The taste is fruity with notes of malt and chocolate. Medium body with soft carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel. Overall, not a lot of taste - in fact somewhat watery on the finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler, courtesy 4.4-40. Pours a clear, dark, chestnut to mahogany color that shines a deep crimson when strongly backlit. A small, foamy, mocha colored head leaves skinny bands of lacing on the glass. The nose is simple, showing barley roast, coffee, dried cocoa, and a little bit of earthen hops. Flavors are decently balanced, showing some sweet dark caramel up front, followed up by softly roasted coffee, semi-sweet cocoa, and earthy bitterness. Unfortunately, a little diacetyl creeps in, imparting a hint of chemical and butter. The palate is weak, watery, and softly carbonated. It’s drinkable, but not satisfying in the least. I’d most likely pass on a second pour.
