Bottle @ NYC Craft Beer Festival. Dark inky brown with small off-white head, caramel aroma, low carbonation, roasted malt - caramel taste, long bitter finish. Good but the roasted bitterness was too predominant.

Pours black with a light khaki head. Aromas of coffee and some malt sweetness. Taste of coffee, malt sweetness and a little smokiness. Thin mouth feel with nice lacing in the glass. Overall very nice example of an American style porter.

12oz bottle, fridge temp. dark brown, almost no head. smells like a lager with roasted malts addd. Very weak body, weak taste, lager yeast for some reason. not sure what else to add. just not a fan of this one.

Smooth and balanced. Somewhat malty but no other dominating characteristics. Easy drinking, good-to-style porter.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A nice beer all around. Nice dark rich pour with a full light khaki head. Nose is roasted malts and some dark fruits. A little plums and maybe raspberry. Flavor has a little sweetness added to the roast. Some lighter sweetness, like candy sugar and molasses. Smooth finish with a nice medium body. I dig it.

Pours deep, rich black, nice toasty flavor. Great representation of the style. Most craft brewers seem fixated on adding a twist to classic styles to make them stand out, often the embellishment is more of a distraction than anything else. This is just a good, classic porter.
