Pours an opaque black with a thin tan head that mostly disappears. Nose is fairly faint and of malt and molasses. Very creamy on the palate with medium/heavy viscosity. Taste is of dark, almost burnt, malt, some molasses, with hints of caramel and coffee. Nice finish- slightly dry. An above average porter but not in the top tier. Pairs well with brats off the grill.
