Pretty good porter. A lot of other flavors than you’d expect, especially a notable vanilla aftertaste. Lighter than the usual porter.

Tap at ppg. Pours clear, dark ruby. Fizzing out beige foam. Spotty lace. Big cherry cough syrup nose, black cherry soda, hints of vanilla. Taste is very medicinal, suddy, almost like black cherry soda gone wrong with a hefty dose of Robitusson.
