Opaque black - brown beer, good pale tan head. Smooth palate with a crispy edge, dry. Fresh dark malt, a little roast and a trace of coffee. Mild minerals. Dash of malt cream. Mellow and minerally orange citrus hops. Finishes dry with a mild coffee aftertaste. A bit dry but a fresh porter. Hardly a sweet stout!
