It pours dark brown with a brown head. There are moderate fruit aroma with Roast, chocolate, and some nut. There are flavors of roast and citrus with chocolate, oats, and nut. It has a moderate feel that is on the heavy side with a moderately high bitter finish. It has a fairly high level of carbonation. Overall it is a malt forward ale with a pleasant balance of citrus hops.

At the brewery : Nice smell of chocolate and medium roast. Taste is the same with medium-light mouthfeel. Easy drinking porter but on the lighter side so good for warmer days maybe. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
