4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a rather this light tan head on there. Nose is quite roasty with just a little bit of some chocolatey sweetness in there. Taste is also quite roasty and slightly bitter up front, but has a lingering sweetness with some chocolate to it. Really quite pleasant.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Good, solid dry porter. Surprisingly flavorful given its low ABV. Chocolate undertones, with cherry (?) overtones. Satisfyingly complex, enjoyable, and drinkable -- perhaps sessionable!

Had off tap at the brewery. So similar to two beers porter, just slightly more root beer like flavor. As I continue to drink the sweetness in this brew stands out. Medium body that stays through.
