Bottle share at the Syb Pig in Boca Raton, FL. Thanks Ken! Pours a mostly dark brown-black with a one finger tan head. Head gone in under 60 seconds. Little lacing. Used a snifter. Aroma of roasted malts, hint of coffee, dark chocolate. Taste fell a little flat. You get the roasted malts fine but it just seemed to not exude much in flavor. A little thin for my taste regarding a porter. Medium body, light carbonation. Finish is roasty and slightly bitter.

A bit thin. Not as much flavor as I would have liked. It's sort of like a RC Cola without the sweetness.

Brown/black pour with tan head and lace. Aroma is toasted malt and coffee. Flavor is sweet chocolate, a touch of coffee, and an ok malt bitter. Medium bodied that waters out towards the end.

Dark brown? Room lighting as poor. Tan head. Aroma is sweet and roasted malts. Taste is similar with a little chocolate to start and coffee to finish. Nothing really strong.

Pint glass filled from 15 minute old growler fill.
Pours clear, dark red-brown; near opaque with a decent sized but weak beige head.
Lots of sweet caramel malts in the nose but the flavor is dominated by darker roasted malts. Excellent and balanced aftertaste with some coffee and a hint of dark chocolate.
Feel: medium body and carbonation.
