Aroma is not very strong here, but displays hints of roast and dark malts. Deep brown color with a stable tan head that drops to a thin film until the end of the glass. Deep sweetness with mild roast character and very light hop bitterness. The body is thinner than I like a porter to have, though still solid enough to satisfy. Finishes clean and has no lingering film on the palate. Luckily I had a 750, so I could see how the beer improves as it warms. Would probably be a great porter on a beer engine.
