Dark ruby brown color with a medium sized tan head. Some chocolatey malts, and some light hops in the aroma. Dry toasty bitterness, some bitter-sweet chocolate, a hint of caramel. A pretty average porter.

Dark brown color with ruby highlights and a medium off-white head. The aroma was faint...some coffee...mildly sweet. The flavor had some coffee, cocoa, and a little citrusy hops. Thin, fizzy feel. Below average porter.

I dunno, i just found this to be extremely pleasant while nursing the flu bug. It pours a brownish black mix with ruby in the light and very small head if any. The aroma is coffee and chocolate with definite caramel malt presence, very sweet. The taste is smokey and coffee like with caramel malts taking over and little to no signs of bitterings qualities. Very dry malty finish, sweet, but i can understand how people see little body in this as it is a very easy drink, too easy some might say. I happen to like the smokey addition to this brew, it does it well...carbonation is medium. Nicely done, and thank you beerguy101.
