Draft at Tamarack. Pours semi-opaque black, thin tan head, average lacing. Nose is vanilla, oats, coffee, light roast. Really a lovely smelling Porter. Flavours are more vanilla, joined by cashew nuttiness, round roastiness, black bread, toast, and mocha. One of the better Porters I’ve had of late!

Nose of dark roasted malts, a little bittersweet chocolate, a touch of tang, apparently this was sour mashed, a little earth. Nice. Pours dark brown more or less black with a creamy tan head with great staying power. Flavors of dark roasted malts, a little dark chocolate, slight sweetness, a little fruity, and a mild tartness in the finish that combines very well with the roast forward beginning. Smooth creamy body, nice dryness, nice light tartness in the finish. A really delicious beer.
