12 oz. can. Dark, opaque brown, with a medium, bubbly, light brown head. The aroma is roasted coffee, molasses, a bit of licorice, chicory, and very light tart cherries. Sweet, with a light roasted bitterness. Medium to heavy body, syrupy, acerbic, and a little harsh. This is a nice, lightly roasted, easy porter.

3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can at home. Deep aroma of chocolate cake and sweet coffee. The flavor is overly sweet throughout. Mostly picking up on chocolaty and coffee notes. Kind of one dimensional. Lacks that ashy woody smoky charred flavor of the best porters. The finish is underhopped.

Can from Mitsuya’s. Drank straight from the can. Roasted malt armoas with some root beer, espresso and caco. Body is very porter like, with a root beer like carbonation. Dry and roasty with some mild bacon on the finish. Very enjoyable.
