Draft at WBF. Very nice and roasty. A very interesting porter, seemed to have more of a roasted barley quality than black patent.

Poured from the can from tavour. Nice thick creamy head. Aroma is nutty, chocolatey. Some roasted grain. I’d say nutty to balance is the dominant flavor here. Palate is medium bodied, sparkley carbonation. Overall not bad, pretty good.

Dark and rich porter. Depth with flavors of chocolate, malts, earthy leather. About half inch head in glass and slow to reduce. Balanced creamy, sharp, refreshing. Great finish no hoppy taste and mild bitterness. Was really impressed with this beer. Hard to find even in cooler months in Raleigh area.
