12 oz bottle. Pours a clear deep red brown with a tan head. Caramelized brown sugar and toffee in the aroma. Flavors of roasty caramel, toffee, brown sugar, at times a bit of marshmallow. A little different from the typical porter flavors, but definitely on the watery side.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not a bad porter, but unremarkable when it comes to all the great ones available. The malt profile isn’t really complex enough and that affects the flavor. I like a porter that errs on the side of being more on the coffee/chocolate side of the spectrum. This doesn’t get there. Good, but not great.

Pours a dark brown color with a light tan head that leaves decent lacing. Smells of roasted malt, chocolate, toffee and caramel. Tastes of all the same things in the smell. Mouthfeel is thick and chewy with good carbonation. Not a bad porter but pretty average for a British style porter.
