"i was hoping northern Nevada would be represented better than this, especially being that their Angel Creek Amber is so good...but this beer is weak & boring, even if it were classified as a brown. worst porter i’ve ever had."

12oz Bottle dark redish brown topped with a tan head. A nice roast on the nose. Pretty light on the palate not as thick and full as I was looking for. Tast of a little chocolate and coffee. Not bad.
