Honestly, I was expecting more. Its a solid porter but nothing spectacular. Could be that I just got a bottle that had been stored too hot briefly. Somewhat bittersweet with a little coffee, little chocolate, but just left me feeling that the beer wasn’t any more exciting than the label. Just okay.

Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Manchester Wine and Liquors. Appearance is dark brown/mahogany--almost opaque--with small beige ring of head and trace lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, vanilla, caramel, chocolate. Taste is sweet roasted malt, dark fruit, chocolate, with mild coffee-like bitterness. Palate is full bodied with thick, foamy texture, average carbonation and nice mix of bitter and sweet finish. Overall, some complex aromas and flavors with a real nice mouthfeel.

Not enough toasty, roasty flavors for a porter IMO. Not a bad beer for sure but didn’t hold up to others in the flights I tried. Good body but very neutral flavor profile. More like a great lager than a porter.
