Sampled @ Oak Hills Brewpub. Deep black, smoky nose with burnt malts and just a little bit of licorice. Somewhat lactic but still very nice with a good black smoke flavor and feel. I like.

Tap @ Oake Hills McMens
Dark brown, tan film of head & lacing. The aroma is sweet with some chocolate & distant fruity licorice, almost like rocky road. The flavor is roasted, light fruity, same as mose mcmenamin’s porters save for a touch of licorice in the finish. Creamy roasted tail.
