Unfortunately, I read the description of the beer first, and it tainted my rating. Anyway, poured dark brown with a slight red hue. Smells mostly of coffee and tastes the same. My only contribution is that it leaves a great roasted malt taste in your mouth.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 12 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown with a small light tan head that leaves a bit of sticky lacing. Roasty malts, unsweetened chocolate, coffee, caramel, and toast. Surprising bit of a bitter hop resin on the backend. Medium body, smooth texture, lively carbonation. Very flavorful porter here. Well balanced.

From a bottle this is a nice full bodied beer without any of the nasty typical ale effects. fer sure, this is smooth and easy. I find it to be better than expected.Yes, more friendly than most porters. Has manners, is easy going and is so unexpectedly nice. Certainly up there with Labatt Porter,
Beaver Black & Tan,
Saranac 4059 Porter and
Beaver Maple Brown Porter but not as good as
Indigo Imp Gatekeeper,
East End Pink Clouds Porter,
Yuengling Original Black and Tan
Bayhawk Chocolate Porter

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A decent starter porter but not enough complexity or flavor for me. Aromas of light chocolate and light roast. Taste is faint chocolate, roastiness, and maybe a taste reminiscent of a flat Coke. Mouthfeel is thin and finish is clean. An ok porter that does not stand out.
