Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. It pours a dark brown with a lasting light tan head. Nice lacing too. The nose roasty with slight prune notes. The flavor has a good bit of roast bitterness, nice earthy notes, a little smoke, and slight wood. Fairly full bodied with a medium finish. Maybe a bit heavy for a porter, but still pretty tasty.

Tap at the brewpub. Dark brown pour with a nice foamy tan head. More sweet than roasty, with some sweet chocolate and maybe a little cherry. Good beer!
