Bottle into English pub glass, clear deep brown color with tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, light coffee and faint fruitiness. Taste adds notes of nuttiness, milk chocolate, espresso, smoke and herbal hop bitterness. Light-medium body, low-moderate carbonation, creamy with earthy roast finish. Nice lighter chocolate-leaning porter, pretty good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
"Solid porter...had the nitro, cask, and co2 versions...all good, nitro the fav. Smooth as hell, pretty to look at. Light on the palate but with a more than adequate malted milk chocolate and roasted malt flavor."

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Dark brown with tall off-white head. Nice aroma of roasted malts with fruity notes. Thinner body than the typical porter, smooth texture, and medium-high corbonation. Sweet up front followed by roasted malt bitterness and hints of chocolate. Not what I expected and it doesn’t strike me as porter, but not bad overall.
